I've had a chance to continue sorting my Corgi Collection.

In the past I saved one photo of each model and then added info from the Great Book of Corgi.

Now I'm going back and taking more angles.

I'm adding the photos to collages for each year. The extra photos make it easier to fill the pages.

I'll be including any Code 3's and copies I have.

Attached is my current 1956 collection.

Hoping to continue with the later years but it's not a quick exercise as most of the models are stored away.

Nicely done and an ambitious project.

Indeed a great project. Are you going to make a hardcopy of it too?

<p>Thanks guys. I've certainly thought of having the pages professionally bound. But I probably won't do that until I stop collecting. The pages are too fluid at the moment, constantly changing as I upgrade or add new variations (and code 3's).</p>
<p>Besides, I'm still trying to figure out the best way to arrange the images.</p>
<p><span style="font-size: 12.16px;">1956 - take 2</span></p>

See, there is a problem I find with most books on Dinky Cars and trucks and most other brands too. You never see the back of the car at all. Would be nice to add that. Where you have 2 cars or trucks beside each other turn one around to show the back. The fronts and backs should be the same but for color and maybe, just maybe on has painted tail lights or unpainted tail lights or maybe jewels for the tail lights.

Thanks Jim. That's a good idea.
I'll turn one around and/or add extra images.

At least that way you can see the whole car. Being a restorer I like to make the back of the car as close to original as possible. Some have license plate holders in Silver or black and some not at all. Other do and some don't paint the tail lights etc.
Glad I could offer a suggestion to your project, daunting as it is.
