Austin Taxi

This is a great little model (1:76th scale) of the Austin Taxicab or to be correct the Austin 12/4 Low-Loader of the 1930's. Superb detail on such a small model.

Is that the Oxford model? Also available in grey as an AFS vehicle. I do not think that is the low-loader. The vehicle looks too high. I think that it is the earlier higher version. The 1/43 Oxford is the low-loader version. But it is still a great little model. George

George, Oxford Diecast do not state the model on this particular example but the same moulding in Maroon and Black (76AT004) is listed as "Austin Low Loader" hence my discription. The casting when compared with photographs of the actual vehicles appears rather high set in particular the side step in front of the luggage compartment. I can only go off the model listing from Oxford Diecast as to the items I purchase and display. Ray.
