The first 7 models from when they still looked normal. in Front row are the 3 Husky, rear left are the 2 Corgi Junior transition models, and Rear Right has the two whizzwheels Rocket wheels models.






it may not seem like much, but attention to detail is important when finding a missing link.











with Corgi a lot of transitions took place. This model got replace by a smaller variant, likely the 1974 model. But did return as a VW Hot Rod. Currently am finalizing that collection as it came in many colours, and a 1980s chassis change.

Good comparison!
I often wonder why they change the chassis.

Mostly its because the molds get too worn out.
In Corgi's case in the early days they were proud to use their brand and changed whoever they took over from.

Pity they got lazy with Lledo Vanguard.
