Corgi Warships

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.

HMS Prince of Wales (R09) is the second Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier.
