THUNDERBIRD GUIDED MISSILE


 

This is the first Corgi military model, the first of many and a nice model it is too with fine detailing and a rather fun four wheel steering mechanism on the trailer. It was added to the range in May 1958 at the same time as its companion towing vehicle, the No.351 RAF Land-Rover. They were paired in a gift set (GS3) in July of the same year. It remained in the range as a single item until its deletion in 1962. I have seen it listed with the missile in silver, off-white, blue and green, however I've only found examples with the missile in silver. The variations in missile colour do not seem to affect value.

This one is in brilliant condition with a very good nosecone.
