ON THE BUSES

New Zealand Classic Car - - Automobilia - 12. 25. 5. 19.

For those in­ter­ested in public trans­port, we spot­ted this rather nicelook­ing 1:43 Corgi model of an MCW Metrobus. For those not into bus lore, th­ese dou­ble­decker peo­ple car­ri­ers were built by Metro Cam­mell Wey­man, first ap­pear­ing in 1977, with over 4000 be­ing built un­til they were re­placed by the MKII in 1989. This Corgi model — listed as a No. 55 Ev­ing­ton, Le­ices­ter ex­am­ple — boasts an ad­ver­tis­ing ban­ner for Batch­e­lor Bowles, a Hinckley and Le­ices­ter­based Vaux­hall, Bed­ford and Opel dealer. Corgi/ Van­guards mod­els are avail­able from all good toy and hobby shops. Con­tact Toy­mod Ltd (PO Box 18 263, Auck­land, ph. 09 527 0122 / fax 09 527 0144) to find your clos­est re­tailer.
