I see the 330 come along with different colours of the engine compartement cover.


Most of mine have a blue one, but I have also seen transparent and some with a yellow tone.


Does someone have an overview which body colors were combined with which hood types?


Are the transparent ones repros?

Wolfgang, buy the E. Force book, it is all in there.


Mine are yellow and blue.

Thanks, Keesie.


I always believed, my "Great Book of Corgi" was the perfect companion...


In order to get a taste for the level of depth of the E.Force book, could you reflect, what it would state in regards of my question?


Thanks in advance

Wolfgang, I did not mean you cannot place questions, it is just, you place so many about Corgi variations, that it is best to buy that book. By the way, comparing the E. Force book to Cleemput cannot be done. Cleemput is not only more expensive and bigger, but you can also read it like a 'good book'. Force's book just sums up all the variations (Cleemput does not), and has small pictures of all the models in rows.

About the Porsche 330:

330-A: Upper body, lower body-base, and opening rear castings, clear windshield and canopy, tinted engine cover, black interior, gray SW, (?), driver, clear headlights, red jewel taillights, silver mirrors, nr 60 and lettering decals, suspension, cast eight-spoke wheels, plastic tyres, Same casting as 371A, which has whizzwheels.

1. White body, red trim, blue tinted engine cover
2. White body, blue trim, amber tinted engine cover
3. Same as 330-A1 except racing number 1: GS12-B (I don't get that last code, anyone?)

I did not realise there was so much to write about a basic model. Mind you, they forgot to mention 'detailed b/s engine'  'Porsche emblem on base' 'steering'  and 'front spoiler flaps'.......

Enough typing for one night........

Thanks, Keesie - thats pretty detailed information, indeed.

Must have this book.

Found the second version for quite a reasonable price at Amazon.

Read a comment that picture quality on second version is not as good as first issue - can someone confirm?
