The flagship of the corgi range of transport models, these 1:50 scale diecast models are highly detailed models of the trucks from the UK’s most famous haulage companies
Each model is in 1:50 scale and diecast to the highest standards. They are mainly all limited editions of 600 – 2000 worldwide. There are small number of Special Edition model trucks as well, which are not limited in products, but are usually very popular models. All of the Corgi model trucks that are limited edition include a quality limited edition certificate of credit card size, detailing the amount of models available and also the individual truck number in that limited edition run. The certificate also contains the image of the model truck and also a description and background of the truck company.
The scale model trucks come securely packed in their own presentation box. Most of the model trucks have various extras fitted, such as High and Low Light Bars, Aerials, Mirrors, Mud-flaps, Visor Mirror, Bumper Bars and Vinyl Curtain Sides.
Not all models contain all of these and Corgi are constantly updating their range and adding new extras.
