Corgi 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, Deutsches Afrika Korps, Tunisia, May 1943 German Krauss-Maffei Sd. Kfz. 7/1 8-Ton Semi-Tracked Personnel Carrier/Prime Mover - Unidentified Unit, Deutsches Afrika Korps, Tunisia, May 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.

Interestingly, Henschel und Sohn of Kassel was charged with building the heavily armored chassis while Krupp, by far the largest munitionwerks in Germany, was given the task of developing the turret.

British Churchill Mk. III Infantry Tank - "ESK", 6th Scots Guards Tank Brigade, Italy, 1943 British Churchill Mk. III Infantry Tank - "ESK", 6th Scots Guards Tank Brigade, Italy, 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.

Kfz. 171 PzKpfw V Panther Ausf. D Medium Tank - Panzerabteilung 2, Panzer Brigade 107/25.Panzergrenadier-Division, Bamberg, Northern Bavaria, April 1945 (1:50 Scale)

In many respects, the Panther tank was viewed as the finest armored fighting vehicle of the Second World War. Based in large part upon the Soviet's highly successful T-34 medium tank, the PzKpfw V Ausfuhrung G (Type G) was built by several manufacturers including MAN, Daimler-Benz, and MNH.
