Firstly I would like to thank all customers that purchased via the website & in person at various shows that Brian Collins Enterprises attended during 2022. Customers & returning customers are vital to any business.
Some sense of a new normality seen the restart of many shows we attended during 2022, from the three Brian Collins Enterprises / Collectables Toy Fairs @ Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport, to WMRC Easter 2022 Exhibition, Shamrock Car & Machinery Vintage Show, MRSI Dublin Exhibition & The Cork Model Swap Meet. Thank you to the show organisers for inviting us to attend.
November 2022, seen the release of the Brian Collins Enterprises 3 Piece Garda Síochána Set, a great follow up to the two previously release Dublin Fire Brigade models (Ambulance & Scania Appliance).
2023, we look forward to new releases from various manufactures:
Tiny City – As part of their 2023 range work is underway for the release in 1:76 scale of a number of new models such as Scania New Generation P-Series Recovery Truck, first model release will be in the livery of KMB Bus Company HK. Scania New Generation P-Series will also be available as Tipper Truck & Hiab Crane Truck. For the Emergency Service vehicle collectors, Panther 6×6 Airport Fire Engine in two variants.
Shedring Hobbies – great accessories for the layout & will continue to be available via the Brian Collins Enterprises website or at various shows were attending in 2023. If your looking for something in particular, please don’t hesitate to let me know & I can ask Shedring Hobbies to include on my next order.
Model Bus Collection – With the success of the first model & for a great cause MacMillian Cancer Support. Hot on the heels of this will see the release of two models Stagecoach Spirit of London Enviro 400MMC & Alexander Dennis Enviro 400MMC demonstrator model.
Northcord – recently announced the re-introduction of the tooling back into the range of Enviro 400 & Scania OmniCity Double Decker models. New tooling is also being worked on Enviro 400 City & hopefully we will see update from Northcord in 2023 & details of the firsts liveries that this will appear in when released.
Oxford Diecast – hopefully 2023 will see the release of some of the new tooling previously announced such as the Liebherr LTM1350 Crane, Cylindrical Tanker Trailer & the Volvo FL Emergency One Pump Ladder to name some of them.
Murphy Models – No time frame given at the time of the announcements: short production runs of the 201 Class locomotive in three different liveries, Mk2d Air-Conditioned Coaches, Mk3 stock & updated 141/181 Locomotives.
Best wishes to you all for 2023, thank you
