Each month we upload a video of our Top Model. This month it is Corgi’s DAF 105 Flatbed and Skip Load in the livery of Paul Hinchliffe Transport Ltd, Bury. The video offers you a chance to see the model in all its glory. Rotating the model 360º, you are able to see it from every aspect, including focusing on any working or moveable features such as an opening bonnet.
