What did you miss this month at Corgi?
How is it August already? July flew by and you’d be forgiven for missing some of Corgi’s fantastic content from the past month!
To help you, we have rounded up all the latest news from Corgi HQ for your reading pleasure, including some fantastic new product announcements!
Let’s dive in…
Top Pick of the Month
Panavia Tornado GR.1 ZA591/FN, RAF No.16 Squadron, 75th Anniversary Scheme, Mildenhall Air Fete, Suffolk, May 1990
Many RAF squadrons would commemorate their 75th anniversary by sending one of their aircraft into the paint shop to be adorned with special anniversary artwork, much to the delight of aviation enthusiasts across Europe.
One of the most impressive of the RAF squadron 75th anniversary schemes was the smart all-over black paint finish applied to Panavia Tornado GR.1 ZA591, an aircraft which would represent No.16 Squadron.
Corgi has added the 1:72 scale model replica of the spectacular Panavia Tornado GR.1 ZA591 to our range, which is now available to pre-order!
Hornby Centenary Bristol Lodekka Buses
July was a fantastic month for new product launches and we were beyond pleased to introduce an exciting collaboration between Corgi and Hornby, with the Hornby Centenary Bristol Lodekka!
The livery on the Bristol Lodekka carries many of the brand names and logos synonymous with Hornby over the last 100 years, with the destination board displaying either Binns Road No. 20 or Westwood No. 64 denoting the year that Lines Bros acquired Hornby.
These limited edition and highly collectable die-cast models, celebrating Hornby's centenary year, are available to pre-order via the Corgi website now!
July would normally witness the busiest period of the UK Airshow season and although things may unfortunately be very different this year, there is no reason why we shouldn’t still make July ‘Aviation Month’ on our blog.
In the first of a two part review feature, this month’s first edition of Aerodrome heads back to last year's Royal International Air Tattoo.
In the second instalment of our RIAT 2019 review we take a closer look at an American classic which went on to see service with air forces all over the world, before moving on to a pair of former Eastern Bloc jet heavyweights.
We were pleased to introduce three BRAND NEW die-cast London buses to the Corgi Beatles range!
These eye-catching 1:64 scale models are adorned with some of The Beatles most recognisable album artwork.
If that wasn't enough, the 1:76 scale Magical Mystery Tour Bus arrived this month as well!
