Corgi Diecast models make both 1:50 and 1:76 scale Bus Models these are generally under the brands corgi omnibus and the corgi classics series,
modern issue corgi bus and coach models are very nice and a better model than the cheap looking badly made 80's routemaster London Buses they would mass produce in those nasty fragile window boxes that would crush if displayed on top of one another,
They Corgi have vastly improved there casting processes and boxes in the last couple of decades i have no idea what corgi were doing in the 80's there were best maker of models in 60's then drastically lost there way, but the newer made in China models are very nice
If not a bit pricey to buy direct from corgi or high street model shops best thing to do is buy them second hand from websites like mine, eBay infact forget about feebay jokers !! actually better still auction houses like vectis.co.uk
Corgi 1:76 models are the standard bus collector's choice of scale and are called corgi omnibus these are very similar to Atlas edition, Britbus and EFE models ,
Corgi also make 1:50 scale which are big models and under the classics range most of the early corgi classics buses and coaches were Bedford models, but since they have done some great models ,
As i mention a lot in my Blogs about Corgi i do think there expensive and over produced generally so not good investments over time ,
If you are paying full retail price for models as collectors tend to store them safe and do not play with them unlike years ago when Corgi models were bought by kids to play with which basically means there's just to much mint boxed 80's to modern day corgi models on the second hand market,
which mean there is more supply than demand which is a very bad thing when you want to resell.your collection.
Don't get me wrong they are great looking models for display but do not expect big returns in the near future reselling,
If you are after resell value in future buy rarer models like the later Atlas editions bus models,
This Article may sound like i am being a bit negative towards Corgi and yes and no, they are great models come in good strong boxes , there just not rare, if you buy in to limited editions of 5,000 being rare your being fooled,
Most of these will never be played with put away by collectors so most will survive over the next decades barring natural disasters and accidents like the wife cleaning them and whoops they fell of shelf !! ,
So unlike years ago when 250,000 models would be made and 249,500 played with, corgi are clever marketers and it fools a lot of people into thinking there rare.
