Nice!

Those old Escorts don't really attract me. But, I've recently saw Corgi's 60th anniversary one, in white, and I'm being tempted. :?

The Escort looks excellent in the first pic .
Pity you didn't get a perfect model first time but Vanguards quality can be like that sometimes .

The white Mexico is a cracking little car for the money Julio and it looks better with the 4 spoke RS wheels as opposed to the minilite alloys on the yellow car and its cheaper to buy.....you will like it im sure

Nice looking pictures (though unfortunately the colour of the car blends into the background a little).

Go for it, I have that one too. I actually took pics of these two Mexicos together, but only could download 3 of the yellow Mex. The white one looks fab, and is cheaper! Go on the Corgi UK website, look at the Daytona Yellow Mexico imageas, you will see these pics on here plus one more of the white one with the yellow one!

Thanks for your advice! ;)

White one does indeed look quite attractive.

I do think it is a nice model and in general a good representation of the car, but unless Corgi have studied a specific car with special sill panels, I don't like the way they have represented the sills by having them protrude away from the top part and if it were mine I would have to Dremel them away.

Hey guys,

just an up-date on these diorama photos.

They where uploaded 1st onto the Corgi website, in the Vanguards section, on the daytona yellow Mexico details, 'images'.

I have very recently been contacted by Corgi, stating that they are so impressed with the photos, they want to feature them in their latest 'Die-cast Diaries Blog. They wanted information as to the story behind the photoshoot and how it was done.
I was chuffed to bits about this! Today it was published, I received a phone call too, we had a good chat!

The link to the Corgi Diecast Diaries blog is below if you're interested. It's on that page further down with some other Vanguards features.

Excellent article by Corgi which summed up the exhibition at Excel. Nice too that they appreciate the effort collectors go to to support the company, especially our own forum member!

Let's hope they invest in some new tooling and models to add to the momentum generated by their public appearances this year.

Loved the comments about the English Electric 'Frightening'!!!
