19 January 2023:

The Vanguards page has been fully updated, its first major review in more than ten years.

Firstly it has been redesigned so that the look and feel is consistent with the rest of the site and the Little Wheels on-line shop. The other major change is to have a single thumbnail representing each casting with a drill-down link to another page showing all its variations and some history of the vehicle represented. This structure allows the main page to load more quickly.

Every model has been reviewed and if better photos are available than those originally used they have been updated. Where there is variation that I do not have photos for I have given a model number and description, there are many fewer of these than previously, I have also indicated where there is a gap in the model number sequence because no model was issued with the missing number.

The Vanguards range of 1:43 scale cars and light commercials and 1:64 scale trucks sets the standard for good quality collectable model vehicles. They tend to be the cars we want to see modelled and mostly are very well done indeed. In fact when they fail to model a car we like, or get it wrong when they do, we collectors can get very vocal about a brand we feel ownership of. I have to say that on the whole these are some of my favourite die-casts.
