Nicely done for their size - the wheels are particularly nice - these Corgi models are sure to be a hit with Taxi collectors worldwide. The castings are simple but accurate and the liveries are bright and cheerful and they should look very nice put up in a cabinet together should you decide to go after all 40 to be issued in the series! The packaging has also been well thought out, with interesting factoids about the sports represented, bright colours and an impressive "Official London 2012 product" hologram sticker.
