Armstrong Siddeley Hurricane
PRICE £20.95 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/43 REF NO ASH002
Oxford’s beautiful Hurricane exudes class and looks great in its jazzy Mint Green paint. The black and gold side trim contrasts well with the bodywork, and so too with the dainty chrome fittings, grille and wheel hubs. The camel-coloured interior is also very pleasing.
Scania R Houghton Parkhouse Livestock Transporter
PRICE £79.99 LIMIT 1,250 SCALE 1/50 REF NO CC13738
You’ll need a strong shelf for this one! Corgi’s Dermot Conroy animal mover is imposing indeed with its huge white and blue trailer, which has good rear door and light detail. The cab is stunning, with perfect company logo printing.
Ford Mustang GT Bullitt
PRICE £69.99 LIMIT NOT SPECIFIED SCALE 1/18 REF NO 12822
Resplendent in Highland Green metalflake, Steve McQueen’s legendary 1968 Mustang is faithfully reproduced here. There’s super engine detail under the opening bonnet, a respectable interior, opening passenger doors and boot with spare wheel. The underside is also well-appointed.
Massey Ferguson 7480 Tractor
PRICE £25.94 LIMIT 2,500 SCALE 1/32
Günter Konzett, an Austrian contractor, has a fleet of 7,480 tractors in platinum. Massey Ferguson commissioned Britains to make this model after the salesman who sold the tractors used one to take his bride to their wedding. Based on Britains’ standard 7480 model, the platinum edition is sold in special packaging and only available from Massey Ferguson dealers or the Massey Ferguson website.
