Fifty years after the conclusion of the Korean Conflict, Corgi is paying homage to the men and machines that participated in the so-called "Forgotten War". They have created a range of precision-engineered military vehicles that are based on some of the most important armament of the period. Each piece contains a numbered, limited edition certificate and a booklet with the specifications of the vehicle and a story of the veteran who operated it during the War. The stories relate the experiences of these "Forgotten Heroes", and offer the collector and the veteran a glimpse and a reminder of what life was like on the battlefields of Korea. As was the case with their highly successful Unsung Heroes series, all of the vehicles in the "Forgotten Heroes" Collection have been 'muddied' to give them a more weathered appearance. Only 15,000 pieces of each vehicle are being released worldwide.
