Lancaster Diorama, Hobby Master arrivals, and New Oxford Military Vehicles

Model News from

April 26, 2013
New Item:
We are excited to announce a really unique new product: A complete, 1:32 scale diorama featuring RAF 617 Squadron commander Guy Gibson, his crew, and a portion of the Lancaster bomber they flew on Operation Chastise, the famous "Dambusters Raid" of 1943!

Unparalleled in scope, this complete, Limited Edition set includes:
- The entire 7-man crew. Made of metal, each figure is hand painted with incredible detail. You can literally see the anticipation in their faces.
- The rear portion of their Lancaster. Made of resin, it has precisely scribed panel lines, all the proper markings, and a crew ladder.
- A simulated tarmac display base and a diorama backdrop.

You haven't seen anything like this before because nothing like this has been done before. But W. Britain, a 120-year-old company famous for leading the "toy soldier" industry, has pulled it off like no one else could.

It is a Limited Edition set that will ship on a first-come, first-served basis.
Oxford Models
Here is an upcoming lineup of realling interesting military vehicles. The scale of 1:76 is a little odd, but they will sit fine with 1:72 models, and these are trucks I've never seen before.
