I got the blue Corgi M3 on bidorbuy. Got that stripped & primered. I then went for a metallic blue with a coat of clear. I left the original wheels & used the Artlines for the lights. I need to do the grill properly though.
A brief history of the Gallachers by Geoff Milne
It was back in 1971 that Paddy Gallacher started up in business as an owner-driver. His first lorry was a second-hand Albion Clydesdale 4-wheel tipper with the LAD (Leyland Albion Dodge) cab and it was painted blue. The main traffic in the early days was coal, at a time when the North East of England still had a number of working pits. But almost anything that could be moved in bulk was carried, perhaps the most unusual of which was sprats! The Albion carried the name ‘Elizabeth' after Paddy's mother.
The Vanguards Collector Club has just announced details of the Club Year Model which comes as part of the membership package each year.
Members are delighted to see that the model for 2010 is the hugely popular Austin A40 Farina - and even more pleased because it is only the fourth model off the A40 Farina tool.
The Vanguards Collectors Club has just unveiled the Chrome model line-up for 2010 and already demand is high for these very stylish models, which are exclusive to Club members.
Each year, four models are selected from the Corgi Vanguards range to be treated to a gleaming chrome finish, making them very desirable models to own and ones which take pride of place in many collections.
All the models are 1: 43 scale and, over the years since the Chrome range was launched in 2003, some iconic vehicles have featured - including the Rover P5, the Jaguar XJ6, the Lotus Cortina and the Ford Capri Mk III. Each model release carries a number plate in the LCC series; the first model was LCC1 which was the Rover P5.
Many of the earlier models are still much sought after and change hands for significant sums.
