Corgi became the king of the motion picture tie-in when it introduced a 1:48 scale Aston Martin DB5 associated with the James Bond film 'Goldfinger' and 'Thunderball'. Such was the success of this model that a companion model in 1:64 scale appeared in the Husky range, Corgi's small scale budget line. In the years since, 1:64 model car collectors can thank James Bond for dozens of models designed by Corgi, Matchbox and Johnny Lighting to commemorate James Bond movies. Over the next few months, we will look at the model cars that were created as tie-ins to the world's most enduring film spy.
