I recently re-discovered Corgi on a recent trip to Hemley's in London, UK. I was instantly drawn to the vintage packaging and picked up a few cars as souvenirs. They were beyond excellent - and of course, now I was looking to build up my Corgi collection.
I visited the Corgi website and signed up for the mailing list. Using the coupon, I purchased the MGB GT, as it reminds me in some ways of a Corgi model I had as a child (but have since lost): the Renault 16TS.
The MGB GT model was beautifully packed, with everything arriving stunningly intact. I was kept informed of its packing and shipment throughout the process. Thank you Corgi!
Receiving the car on my birthday was a wonderful surprise. The car itself is quite gorgeous - from the ruby red paint job to the wire-wheeled, rubber tires. I appreciate the great attention to detail on this model.
As a designer and illustrator, I really appreciate the care and attention in the classic packaging art, too. It's very faithful to the cars I remember receiving as a child.
I will most definitely order again - especially if you bring back the maroon colored Renault 16TS model, as it has a very special place in my heart.
