Wow, what is missing on the right, is too much on the left.......

Re: been shopping....Corgi 5 years, 3 months ago #33

Yes even Corgi did paint mistakes along with loose fitting rivets no rivets at all missing glazing units decals put on upside down etc etc

I know, people give fortunes for models with mistakes! Mind you, they did not paint the rear lights of Mini Mostest models like that.

Who painted them?

Re: been shopping....Corgi 5 years, 3 months ago #36

Platinum Boarder
Not me, ask te person who placed the picture. Even in my early days I would at least paint the rear lights in orange AND red.

It is my own pop art mini from my modest Corgi collection and it hasn't had any restoration done on it

Then Corgi did not follow their own rules, or maybe the toyshop did it.

The pop art mini was never sold in the shops it should have been but was pulled just prior to release maybe Corgi didn't want to be associated with the hippies dropping acid and smoking weed? Who knows same goes with the flower power Ford Mustang that did make it to a full albeit widely unknown release due to it never being in the catalogues and just on dealers order forms

We know. Still, the rear light problem remains.

Re: been shopping....Corgi 5 years, 3 months ago #41

Platinum Boarder
I don't understand the problem.


Weren't the rear lights painted on in the factory?

Yes it was painted in the factory and there is no problem not from me anyway...

CCE, I suppose you have to judge yourself by the picture, if any factory would have done this. For me, there is no problem, I don't go for originals, I just hope not much money was paid for it.

It is genuine I've done a lot of research into this intriguing mini
