SDie-cast Diaries - The colour of war and the world’s worst car


264 posts

The latest edition of Die-cast Diaries is a must read for Corgi collectors everywhere!


For Aviation Archive fans, we have a feature looking at the depth of research that goes on behind these popular models and link this to a recent Desert Air Force release. We then move on to a vehicle that has been described in several magazines and on-line polls, as ‘The worst car ever made’ and how this familiar British made family car made it in to the Vanguards range.


In time-honoured fashion, we end with our ‘what’s on the desk’ feature and a look at some of the latest sample models to arrive at Corgi HQ.

The Allegro is FAR FAR FAR away from being the worst car in the world, you still see many about whereas where are the 60''s & 70's Vauxhalls, what about the UK's best seller, the Escprt MK1-2 & 3 let alone the MK4, so before you make wild and inaccurate statements, do some more research first - the Pinto, Gremlin and Corvair were total failures like the Edsel - and in some of these cases, very dangerous too.

 It's a shame that the Corgi detail experts still won't fix the glaring canopy issue on the new P-40 Tomahawk model, as it's the reason why I didn't purchase this aircraft.
