Have a few notebooks in 143 scale, mk1 fiesta and r4 van, have a ren20 too that I think is plastic, mint and boxed. I remember being disappointed after bought it lol.
Nice bit of Autocorrect :LOL:

I have a handful of Norevs, some metal body/base, some metal body/plastic base, this one's the only all plastic one

I'd love to find the MK1 Fiesta but they always get snapped up

IS it like an early majorette?
Don't think Majorette ever did plastic bodies - except for Novacar, which is think were either owned by them or were a budget line similar to Matchbox Super GT

Corgi were very good at TV and film tie-ins!

The bigger version was a popular one. Mine's seen some action;

Of course before that they did the Volvo P1800, this one's a lovely Corgi Club reproduction

That also came as a "Rockets" Junior size, I found a tatty one and restored it

Mine too, has been well 'played-with' :

Paint could do with a touch-up, and replacement "Saint" waterslide transfer and 'jewel' headlamps are available, I may just treat the old thing to a set.

I've not seen the programme but a number of Corgi Juniors went on to live a new life as Hot Wheels after the company was bought out.
The Porsche Carrera is easy enough to find, others not so much. I'd like to find the Sierra especially.

I have found the BMW 850

Jaguar XJR12 - despite the logos this still says Corgi on the base!

In fact sometimes, without the original packaging it can be hard to say what brand a car was sold under, this one for example appears to be Corgi...

20210524_135121 by RS, on Flickr

...but I have the larger version, boxed, in the same paint scheme as a Hot Wheels

20210524_135144 by RS, on Flickr

And it's still on a Corgi branded base

20210524_134935 by RS, on Flickr

Got another one in yellow, again Corgi on the base

20210707_155947 by RS, on Flickr

Only other one I've found is this, the "Hot Rod Custom Van", once again Corgi branded although the base is plastic, unlike the metal Corgi originals

Which Sierra, I’ve a few. Think the non branded one is blue and I’ve a black and gold corgi one. Have the larger scale in red and a remake of it from 1994 in blue.

Found a couple of Tri-ang Bogie Well Wagons in a box i brought back from my parents. Think they date from the 1970s or possibly 60's.
Decided they needed a load of some sort. A matchbox bulldozer and Dapol JCB3 fit the bill nicely. Just need securing chains fitting now.
