Corgi 1/43 MGB Set Lancashire Constabulary LC1003

This three car set depicits the MGB used by the Lancashire Constabulary, they employed more than sixty MGB's of which forty were painted in white with the remainder painted in Black. Standard level drivers used the black cars whilst the white cars were reserved for advanced drivers. A couple of the white cars were later repainted with the lower half of the body finished in bright orange to help make the cars stand out in adverse weather conditions.

Corgi 1/43 Vauxhall Viva Hertfordshire Constabulary VA08708

ANK 784F was supplied to the force in the standard Vauxhall colour of Wedgwood blue, meaning no money was wasted on re-spraying. The HB Viva was the first car to be used as a unit beat car by the Hertfordshire Constabulary, and was in service from 1967.

Corgi 1/43 Austin 1800 Durham Police VA08911

The Durham Constabulary were one of several forces that were asked by the home office to experiment with a black and white livery on its traffic division cars, similair in style to that used in the USA.

Corgi 1/43 Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4, Smokestone VA10013

Corgi 1/43 Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4, Smokestone VA10013
The Sapphire modelled was registered on 5th November 1992 as the demonstration car for Yorkshire Ford dealers Bond's of Pocklington and was fitted with the optional factory air conditioning and premium Ford 2040 audio system, but with standard 'Space' velour seat covering rather than leather. Dealer Principal Mr Bond then used it as his personal car before selling it to a local farmer in 1995. He retained it until March 1998 when the current owner, South London-based Chris Ellison, a former Chairman of the Ford RS Owners Club, bought it with just 28,200 miles showing for ?12,995.

Corgi 1/43 Talbot Sunbeam Mkll 1.3 Sussex Police VA11303

Being somewhat cash strapped at the time, Chrysler UK were unable to develop a wholly new car to meet demand in the burgeoning new hatchback segment so effectively re-skinned and downsized the Avenger. This meant that, when launched in 1977, it was natural for forces such as the Sussex Police, who had used Avengers extensively, to employ the Sunbeam in a similar unit beat car role in both rural and urban locations. Sunbeams could be seen at stations all over Sussex during the seventies and early eighties, and the car modelled was based at Chichester Police Station.

Corgi 1/43 Triumph TR4A, Salford City Police VA11507

The Triumph TR4A was used by a small number of Britain's Police forces, including Salford City Police and Manchester City Police.  KRJ 500E was delivered to Salford City Police on the 1st June 1967.  In 1968 the two forces amalgamated (with others) to form Greater Manchester Police.  At that time the combined total fleet of TR4As was eight cars.

The car modelled patrolled the Salford and north Manchester area.  Legend has it that the force favoured the Triumph over the MG because neighbouring Lancashire Police used MGs and it wouldn't have been right for Manchester to copy the Lancashire force!  As performance saloon cars became popular the British Police ceased to use two-seater sports cars.

Corgi 1/43 Ford Fiesta Mk1 1.3GL Hertfordshire Police VA12503

Surprisingly the Fiesta was initially not that popular in the Panda car role as the British Police are cautious when considering the purchase of their workhorse cars and time spent in the workshop is seen as wasted time. The Fiesta was Ford?s first ever front-wheel-drive car and that was a technology that had proven less than durable on other manufacturer?s offerings. Therefore forces all over the UK stuck with the tried and tested rear-wheel-drive Escort Mk2. However Hertfordshire Police realised the packaging, economy and comfort virtues of Ford?s new billion dollar baby and were among the first to adopt the Fiesta as a regular Panda car. Unsurprisingly they found it very reliable.

Corgi 1/43 Vauxhall Cavalier Mk3 2.0 16V LS Ministry of Defence Police. VA13104
The Ministry of Defence Police are responsible for policing sites owned and used by the MOD. The modern 'MOD PLOD', as they are known colloquially, was formed in April 2004 by the amalgamation of the MOD Police Agency and the MOD Guard Service, the idea being to create a cohesive single security organisation for the whole of the Defence estate. All of their officers are firearms trained and they employ around 2,400 staff across the UK, all of whom are tested for physical fitness annually. The force use a variety of vehicles across their specialist divisions including 4x4s, but they still have a need for rapid and commodious marked patrol vehicles such as the Cavalier modelled here.

Corgi 1/43 Vauxhall Astra Mk2 Merit Central Scotland Police VA13201

New Tooling.

Since the mid-1960s the Police have relied upon basic small to medium size cars, such as the Morris Minor and Ford Anglia, to perform the 'panda car' role.  This involves officers from local stations attending non-emergency incidents or enquiries and carrying out general patrol duties.  The Vauxhall Astra Merit fitted this requirement perfectly.  It was a no frills car that forces could buy in bulk at a fee that would please the local rate payers.  The Central Scotland Police ran a large number of these cars over several years and they proved ideal, reliably covering very high mileages in conditions that are sometimes harsher than those found in more urban areas.

Corgi 1/43 Ford Capri Mk1 3000 GT Lancashire County Constabulary VA13301

New Tooling.

Only a handful of Police forces used the Ford Capri Mk1, but the Lancashire County Constabulary were unusual in having no fewer than eight V6-powered 3000 GTs on their fleet.  Lancashire had a lot of motorway miles to police at the time, and the Capri was seen as an ideal vehicle for this role.  It was fast and although it tended to oversteer when under power, especially in the wet, it was very capable in the right hands.  The cars were all finished in Lancashire County Constabulary's famous DayGlo orange paint which maximized their presence and helped to protect officers whilst engaged at the scene of a motorway incident.

Corgi 1/43 Ford Capri Mk1 3.0GT Thames Valley Police VA13304

The Capri Mk1, especially in 3-litre form, blurred the gap between performance sports car and comfortable saloon in a way that, at first glance, made them ideal high speed motorway traffic cars. However, they were not greatly used in this role because they lacked the carrying capacity needed for the extra equipment the police were being issued with at that time. A small number were utilised, including the Thames Valley Police example modelled here. The equipment carried by a motorway patrol car of this period included a shovel, broom, crowbar, tape measure, cones, road marking chalk, VHF radio, PA, fire extinguisher, medical kit and road signs saying ?Accident? and ?Slow?.

Corgi 1/43 Mini 1275 GT, 1970 Scottish Rally, Paddy Hopkirk & Tony Nash - 2nd overall, 1st in class VA13501

Once early leaders Clark and Porter?s Escort had been eliminated by engine failure, and the fast Lancia Fulvia of K?llstr?m and H?ggbom penalised for a controversial time-keeping infringement, the 1970 Scottish Rally became a straight fight between Brian Culcheth and Johnstone Syer in their powerful Triumph 2.5PI and their BL teammates in the 1,275GT modelled here. Initially unhappy with the car?s handling on 12" rims, Hopkirk reverted to the 10" rims used in the Mini?s heyday and in a gritty drive reeled in the big Triumph. Sadly it wasn?t enough for an outright win but his final appearance in a Works? Mini had provided a fitting finale to his glorious rallying career in Minis.

Corgi 1/43 Vauxhall Carlton Mk2 2.6L, South Wales Police Force VA14001

Corgi 1/43 Vauxhall Carlton Mk2 2.6L, South Wales Police Force VA14001
Like a great many other police forces South Wales Police ran Senators in both marked and unmarked roles. However, their fleet management looked at the Carlton in 1993 thinking it might perform that role for considerably less outlay than the costly upmarket Senator. Thus the manual Carlton, modelled here, was supplied by the local Cardiff Vauxhall dealer and was based at the Traffic Division in Butetown Cardiff (now closed). However it came without the police specification modified suspension that traffic division officers so admired in the Senator and its 2.6-litre engine did not deliver the same level of effortless power as the Senator?s 3-litre. It was because of these issues that the Carlton was eventually replaced by the Senator.

Corgi 1/43 Opel Omega 3000 GSI, Carmine Red, LHD, German Registration VA14002B
The Carlton GSI was launched in the spring of 1986 and defined a new market for large but sporty executive saloons aimed at keen drivers. All GSIs initially came equipped with a manual gearbox, limited-slip differential, ABS, Recaro-style seats, and an aggressive body kit which gave the GSI a slippery CD of just 0.30. Alloy wheels shod with 205/65 VR15 uni-directional tyres, stiffer lower suspension and a tactile leather steering-wheel also added to the car?s driver-appeal. Most potential buyers were hooked on the test drive by the sonorous straight-six exhaust note but the car?s bargain price of ?16,999 made it the desirable performance bargain of its era.

Corgi 1/43 Vauxhall Carlton 2.6Li, West Mercia Constabulary VA14005
Vauxhall Carlton 2.6Li, West Mercia Constabulary
Vauxhall's UK Special Vehicle Operations department in Worcester created this Mk2 Carlton demonstrator for Police forces to test in 2.6-litre form. However, although it was used on active duty by West Mercia Constabulary and at least three other forces, no replicas were purchased. This was because the Police generally preferred the more powerful and commodious Senator 3.0i, especially in its later 24v form, which although it was based on the same floorpan and mechanical components set as the Carlton was slightly more expensive. The distinctive 'Tiger-Stripe' livery on this car was standard for West Mercia Constabulary in the early 1990s and remained on the car even when it served evaluation duties with other forces.

Corgi 1/43 Ford Cortina Mk2 1300 De Luxe, Manchester & Salford Police, Ford Demonstration Car VA04116

Corgi 1/43 Ford Cortina Mk2 1300 De Luxe, Manchester & Salford Police, Ford Demonstration Car VA04116
As police forces modernised in the early 1960s the UBP (Urban Beat Policing) cars required by the Home Office's plan for future policing became known as Panda's because they were often in a black (or blue) and white livery. Manufacturers soon realised the sales potential this policy promised and prepared police specification 1300cc saloons as 'Panda demonstration cars' which were then loaned to regional forces for evaluation. The car modelled was one such vehicle and was loaned by Ford to various forces in the months after the Mk2 Cortina was launched in October 1966. It is modelled in the livery it wore when being evaluated by Manchester & Salford Police.

Corgi 1/43 Ford Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth 4x4 Northumbria Police VA10012

Release postponed - May be delayed until 2016

Northumbria had a considerable car crime problem during the late eighties and early nineties so the Police brought a helicopter into regular use and started using serious performance cars as Traffic Division patrol vehicles. This served as a deterrent because criminals knew they would be pursued by a Cosworth, and that really was the car for the job. The example modelled here was based north of the River Tyne and, like the other RS models used, had its major services carried out at Henlys in Newcastle; the only RS dealers in the North East at the time. Routine oil changes were, however, carried out by the police garage in Killingworth.
