Corgi got some value out of this old casting over the years, this is its second release as an Army truck. Its first role in the Corgi range was to tow the Corporal Missile launch pad. The original truck was produced from 1959 to 1964 under model No.1118 and is found in three versions with UK, Dutch and US markings. UK & Dutch markings getting a premium over US. In 1965 it was re-released as 'Troop Transporter' having US markings with 'US7811332' on a decal and under model number 1133.

Of course its more familiar turnout is that of a Chipperfields Circus crane truck. Officially it is an International Harvesters M35 2 ton 6x6 truck.

 The truck in the photographs below is actually a No,1118 from the 1959 release with UK Royal Engineers markings.
