New tooling in 1:18th scale brings the right hand drive three-wheeled Trojan into the Oxford series, making its debut in a lovely summery pale blue with black masked sunroof and lots of contrasting chrome exterior trim. The large scale shows off all the detail to great effect, too!  Registered 527 ERX, the interior boasts intricately applied red tartan seating with grey trim, black flooring and cream steering wheel and gear knob.

The Heinkel Trojan started life as a microcar designed by Heinkel Flugzeugwerke of aircraft fame in Germany under the name Heinkel Kabine. It was manufactured there between 1956 and 1958 before production was transferred under licence to Dundalk Engineering Company in Ireland in 1958. However, the licence was revoked due to poor quality control shortly afterwards.  Happily, Trojan Cars Ltd in the UK gained the licence in 1960 to restart production of the car under the Trojan 200 name and manufacture continued until 1966.

With a steel unit body, the interior was accessed by an opening front. The Trojan featured a four speed gear box plus a reverse gear, unlike some other bubble cars, with a top speed of 56 mph. The fabric sunroof, in addition to being a great fine-weather feature, also served as an escape hatch should the vehicles only door at the front become jammed in a collision.
