What did you miss this month at Corgi?
Welcome to another monthly round up of all the highlights from Corgi HQ!
October brought competitions, a silent auction, plenty of news and more! Catch up on everything you've missed now...
Top Pick of the Month
The first of our new collection of military vehicles, Military Legends, have arrived recently. These highly-detailed tanks and trucks, announced earlier this year, are all limited edition so once they're gone, they're gone!
The perfect collection for military collectors!
With another two editions of Aerodrome this month, there was plenty to dive into.
Early in the month we joined LLA members and Battle of Britain Memorial Flight devotees at RAF Coningsby in attending this magnificent event.
More recently, we headed back to the final two day Airshow of the 2019 season and an extremely poignant tribute to the pilots who took part in the Battle of Britain. With an impressive collection of airworthy Spitfires gathered for the event, we saw how a few fortunate photographers were able to document a contemporary recreation of the frantic ‘Squadron Scrambles’ which were so synonymous with this battle, thanks to the help of a group of accommodating and extremely hard working re-enactors.
Exclusive Signed Model Auction
The 58th edition of our Diecast Diaries blog featured details of a fascinating occasion in British MG motoring history, where the man described as the father of the MGB was reunited with the beautiful car he previously owned and the Vanguards 1/43rd scale model representation of it. At the end of the day, Don Hayter kindly signed two of our Vanguards models of his MGB Roadster V8 to mark the occasion and we are making one of these models available to a lucky collector in a closed bid auction, with all proceeds going to Mr Hayter’s chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.
The latest edition of our Diecast Diaries blog brought you a whole host of Corgi model features and exclusives. This time, we looked at how a recent Vanguards model release resulted in a British motoring icon being re-united with its creator and how a Bristol Blenheim bomber was asked to come to the aid of famous RAF fighter ace Douglas Bader. With exclusive images and all the latest Corgi model news, our latest blog is one no Corgi collector will want to miss.
