I have finally got around to taking some pictures of Corgi Classics lorrys, i love the detail that has gone into these wonderful models of a bye gone era.







An interesting piece of folded paper came with the spratts model. It shows pictures of Corgi toys being made on the production line.






AMC Pacers on the production line. Next pic is the Carrimore gift set being put together on the line.




 





 









Please feel free to show your Corgi Classics, would love to see what you got.

There's this lovely playworn boxed Big Bedford S-type I received last month.










C422 Riot Police Quad










a Post Office Set


















I love these sets... collected quite a bit but mostly anything with Morris Minors.


That's my focus on Corgi for the most part.

just made some fresh photos of this fantastic (97722) South Wales Police Set sporting an MGA with the roof up and a Morris Minor van.


Set is limited to 5000 so there won't be many popping up of this one.

Some really magnificent trucks here - hard to choose, but I think my favorite must be the Eddie Stobart Foden 8-wheeler flatbed - there's so much detailing on the front it's a real stunner.

These trucks remind me of EFE's 1/76 scale models, only bigger, of course, but very much the same style and even choice of models.

Being primarily a 1/43 collector, Corgi's trucks are of course much more interesting than Efe's, unfortunately the prices also tend to be much higher and I don't have a single one of them, a few buses/coaches but no trucks.

may I suggest collecting car transporters.

the theory is that you can park quite a few cars on these transporter trailers and it won't look strange

also I like Dinkyjay's ERF 8-wheeler chain flatbed as his first post at the top.

Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I can show off the other Foden truck with the semi-trailer and load.
That set me back $150.

Sure, its expensive, but compared to the British Pound equivalent a lot cheaper.

Another great collection of images starting to grow in this thread. I don't think I have any of the Corgi Classics as yet but give it time.
