Mettoy ltd in 1964 produced these stunning matchbox scale diecast models to compete with the matchbox toys which were a run away success in the 1960's and still are today, Mettoy branded these models Husky bit of a unusual name seeing there bigger brand of models were called Corgi a smaller dog breed,
The quality of the 1960's husky models were outstanding metal upper and chassis but then in the 1970's whilst still great looking models they started to go a bit cheap on us and put chrome painted plastic bottoms on them,
Then in the 1970's also gave up the name of husky and called them corgi juniors that were whilst extremely popular poor quality compared to the 1960's models but then again corgi did go all cheap and nasty on us in the late 70's to early 90's
Ut is good to see Corgi making nice models again, I am a big fan of husky i love there original models basically miniature versions of the high quality bigger corgi models,
I actually wish corgi would re launch this band with same quality they did when they first produced them.
Sorry if i moan so much about corgi in the 70's and 80's but they were just dreadful models compared to matchbox, and German makes like Gama and schuco how corgi never went bust i never know.
