Shaken, not stirred at the London Classic Car Show


Welcome to the latest edition of Corgi Die-cast Diaries and all the very latest news and release updates from the world of Corgi model collecting. The start of any new year is a busy time for the Corgi team, with several trade shows and exhibitions to be attended, as well as fitting in all the usual day to day tasks. In this latest edition, we will bring you some exclusive images from our attendance at the recent London Classic Car Show, including how we caught up with one of the iconic British cars we featured in our Vanguards range. We have the very latest information from the much anticipated new 1/48th scale English Electric Lightning F.6 project and showcase some new box artwork that will grace the release of what will surely become a future Aviation Archive classic. In support of this year’s Vanguards 21st birthday, we also have a couple of reader supplied features, one looking at the story behind a model collection and the other illustrating a creative way of displaying models, both of which will be of interest to collectors of this popular range. Finally, we end this latest edition with a competition and the chance to win some extremely desirable Corgi goodies. With much to squeeze in this month, we had better make a start.
