Small is All

 Following neatly on from the larger Corgi models, Mike has sent me some shots of his Junior collection.
 I especially liked the Corgi Junior Starfighter, but had to take the hacksaw to the front to take out the bar and apply a judicious coat of black paint to the wings, cockpit and nacelles! Luvverly.
 Wrath of Khan brought a resurgence of Trek toys, the Klingon was a nice example, although a little basic in comparison to its larger Dinky cousin. Dinky also made a similar sized Enterprise on a card, but it met a very limited release and is quite rare.
 Possibly Corgis finest hour in the Junior stakes, the Liberator is a lovely little model of a very unusual ship.

  1. Avoided the Corgi small and large Buck Rogers starfighters due to that darned bar across the front. Blast health and safety! Bought the larger Monogram model kit instead. Corgi later reissued the Liberator in silver (!) rather than white.
