Corgi Tanks and Diecast Military Vehicles

Corgi, the leading name in diecast scale models and one of Britain's best known brands, has been producing models for over 40 years. Corgi's famous model vehicles captured the imagination of millions of baby boomers and, what were once simply toys for boys, are highly sought-after in the expanding collectibles market.

The Corgi brand was created by the Mettoy Company of Northampton which first started to produce colourful, pressed metal toys in the 1930s. The name Corgi (after the Welsh dog) was chosen for three reasons: first, because it was short and catchy; secondly because the models were to be produced in Swansea and thirdly because of its strong association with the Royal Family.

German Krauss-Maffei Sd. Kfz. 7/1 8-Ton Semi-Tracked Personnel Carrier/Prime Mover - Unidentified Unit, Tunisia, 1943 German Krauss-Maffei Sd. Kfz. 7/1 8-Ton Semi-Tracked Personnel Carrier/Prime Mover - Unidentified Unit, Tunisia, 1943 (1:50 Scale)

Development of the Sd. Kfz. 7 can be traced back to a 1934 requirement for an 8-ton half-track. The vehicle first appeared in 1938 and was destined to be used mainly as the tractor for the 8.8cm flak gun. The Sd. Kfz. 7 was an extremely useful vehicle, employed both as a weapons carrier and prime mover by the Wehrmacht.

British Cromwell Mk. IV Tank - 2nd Armoured Welsh Guards, 1944 British Cromwell Mk. IV Tank - 2nd Armoured Welsh Guards, 1944 (1:50 Scale)

The Cromwell tank was used by the British Army during the later stages of World War II. The Cromwell was ordered in 1941 and intended to replace the lightweight Crusader "cruiser" tank by being more heavily armoured, and, it was hoped, more survivable in battle.

British Churchill Mk. III Infantry Tank - 145 Regiment RAC (Duke of Wellington), Tunisia, North Africa, 1943 British Churchill Mk. III Infantry Tank - 6th Scots Guards Brigade, 1943 (1:50 Scale)

The "Churchill" began life as a 1939 requirement that envisaged a return to trench-warfare, and was therefore slow and heavily armored like the Russian KV-1 series. That said, the final Churchill prototype was much lighter than had first been thought acceptable, although it still resembled a World War I tank in appearance.
