When I first discovered 1:43 scale models, I was overwhelmed by the selection available from so many manufacturers. In the beginning, I looked at models from a lot of different genres and model makers. I didn't have any focus to my collection, and while I still wander from time-to-time, my main interest has become American cars from the 40s to 90s. With those primarily in the 50s & 60s which comprises about 60% of my collection.

One of manufacturers I looked at was Oxford Models. In 2013 & 2014, I added 10 models from them. I have a few more on my wish list but haven't purchased any more for a few years now. This Jaguar is only 1 of 4 Jaguar models in my collection. I keep thinking I need some more, but nothing lately.

Nice model. Interesting you mention 2013. That is year I purchased my first 1/43 scale model cars. However, I only have one from Oxford Diecast, a yellow Datsun 240Z, similar to a 1:1 scale car I owned back in the 1970s. Looking back, I probably should have purchased more.

Other than one I bought in late 2012 (and the original 36 from FM in the early 90s) 2013 is the year I really discovered 1:43. I have been going strong ever since.

Me too. My 1/43 scale collection is now at 42 models cars, 36 of them white metal. I believe you have a few more, maybe more than a few. Happy collecting!

I chose Oxford/s black SS saloon, since registration CDU 700 represents Lady Lyons's personal car.
