TOPIC: Corgi Juniors Questions

Corgi Juniors Questions 7 years, 3 months ago #1

I have recently acquired an large number of boxes of toys and have begun the monumental task of sorting and cataloging them. I have managed (I think) to find all the Corgi Juniors so far and have run into a few anomalies with them. I hope there are some experts here that can help me sort them out.


Firstly I have a 35B airbus but it is in a metallic blue colour. the only reference I can find is in Dr. Force's book that states "said to exist in blue". I can find no pictures or references on the internet of this variation. I am assuming it is quite rare then.

















I also have come across a few variations of the 44A RayGo Rascal 600 Road Roller. Both blue ones have Corgi Junior bases, but one has a brown plastic roller and the other has a light tan roller with chromed metal sides. I also found an all yellow one with much larger rear wheels and a black plastic roller. I cannot find any reference to these variations at all.


Any assistance would be most appreciated.

They look early to mid 70s to me and a good book is available that'll tell you the dates manufactured etc

Hi Cam it looks like the Raygo with the chrome sides the roller is upside down?

As for that airbus must be chuffing rare as I can find naff all on it. Are you going to post up pictures of big haul??

I will try to find that book around here. I have the military one as well although it has broken rotor blades.


Luff, you are entirely correct, I hadn't noticed that! No sign of it having been apart so someone at the factory had an off day it seems.


I had found the Gary's Cars site, but he just has pictures and no sign of either of these oddities. I will have to keep looking I guess.

That was one large van full of boxes that I saw when Cam stopped by. I think it would take about 10 or 12 pictures to show all he had. Tools too!
