A few days ago I posted about my new EFE Atkinson transporter and since then most of the emails and messages have been to do with the vehicles I displayed with it, namely the Classix diecast brand, it seems not many people in the diecast world has seen or heard of them.

Mainly supplied for OO gauge model railways, the Classix brand is supplied by Pocketbond Ltd and supply another well know brand for model railways, Scenix buildings, a range of buildings for OO gauge model railways. These are finished, painted and detailed 1:76 scale buildings made of lightweight hollow cast polystone, in fact I have one on my diorama at present, the red garage building in the picture below.

The Classix range is vast and covers trucks, vans and cars from the 50′s and 60′s and ideal for model railways, dioramas or just for collecting.

They are similar to Oxford Diecast in detail and Corgi Trackside ranges.

My first two are below

The first is the Austin A35 estate in green, this has the Classix number EM76859

For something so small the detail is fantastic.

Better known as the A35 countryman.

The next one is the Ford 300E Thames van 7cwt also in green, Classix No EM76676.

This one even has the sun visor.

They are easily available and if you Google, Classix diecast, it will bring up loads of suppliers, one of my favourites is Javis Manufacturing Ltd as they show a vast range of what is available, or for Scenix buildings try Gaugemaster.
