Oxford Diecast 1/76 Ford Transit Connect Royal Mail 76FTC001
The Ford Motor Company boasts that every Transit is built for purpose
and the smaller Ford Transit Connect is no exception with a large cargo
capability lending itself to all sorts of commercial van users. Shaped
by Ford kinetic design, the van has improved aerodynamics for greater
fuel efficiency and high-tech lights for greater visibility. Component
parts have also been designed for easy service and replacement.
Here at Oxford we have replicated the Ford Transit throughout its
evolution from the early 'box on wheels' to this latest streamlined body
shape, which looks really good with its bold contemporary styling. It
is no surprise that in real life, it has sought favour with the Royal
Mail as part of their delivery fleet and is therefore a natural choice
of livery to launch our 1:76 scale model.
Looking at the detail, our model is registered LD06 USX and painted in
the signature Post Office red. The interior, chassis, window surrounds,
grilles, bumpers, side trim, door handles and wheels are all black. The
Royal Mail insignia appears on both sides and the cab doors of the van,
as well as across the back. A modern touch sees the Royal Mail website
address under the ER printing on the cab doors, also featuring across
the back doors along with the 08457 telephone number.
