Just looking at the model section of the main site, there is mention of the Corgi range, but only pics of Corgi 341 Mini Marcos 850 GT in maroon.

Here are a few pics from my collection of the other variants in the Corgi range.


This is the same Corgi 341, but this time in the 2nd edition box.


This is Corgi 305 Mini Marcos GT Whizzwheels


305 again, but this time in cream and no decals.




The rare blue version of the 305 from the Corgi Gift Set 20


And finally Gift Set 20.

The first one with the decal on the front, which is wrong btw, I picked up in the UK a few years back, I paid quite a bit for it, still haven't told the boss the exact price

The second one I got on EBay as part of the GS20 set, I had been after the set for years and was amazed when this came up on EBay, I knew they were worth quite a bit and felt that it would be out of my league, I even emailed the seller telling him what he had and he was unaware of it's rarity. I put on a modest bid with the expectation of being beaten, but everyone must have been on holidays that week as I won the auction at a little over a third of what I had paid for the first blue one.

I was chatting to a Dutch model collector at last years IMM and he tolm that the husband of an every day housewife, who has a business selling models, bought a blue Marcos at a boot sale for 50p .
Some guys have all the luck.

I had forgotten about this one. The endless possibilities of the Mini Marcos!... Talking of model Marcoses, is there any news on the Spark releases? I searched the model stands at Le Mans at the weekend but still no sign of them?

The first of the Spark Models are available in the States at the moment, might not be too long till they reach this neck of the woods.
