However much one may love Corgi Toys you do have to wonder quite what planet some managers were on when they chose the colours for their models in some periods!

This otherwise impressive sports Volvo, (the car used by Simon Templar no less in white) appears first in a disgusting shade of brown and this variation of salmon. You wonder whether they had some left over from the Impala paint room, although there is a subtle shade divergence.

With two jewelled lights and that’s all by way of accessories this is another simple but delightful model. Apart from the colour.

This example has very little paint loss and really looks excellent - this is actually quite hard to find in pink and in good condition. I am sure everyone bought The Saint version.
