Army Model Van's
produced in Great Britain by Corgi,
By the year 2000, Dad's Army has
become regarded as a Cult Comedy Classic, so its hardly surprising
that two of the leading vehicles from the series have been reproduced
by Corgi for the Collectors market.
On a larger scale and more accurate
than the previous models produced by Lledo a few years earlier,
the models, Corporal Jones's Butchers Van nd Chief Warden Hodges'
Greengrocers van are a worthy addition to any Dad's Army fan's
Here is the description given to
the van's from the Christmas 2000 edition of Corgi Direct.
Jones Butcher's Van (Dad's Army)
Regularly commandeered by Captain Mainwaring as the platoon's
troop carrier, Jonesie's van became as much a recognisable star
of the series as any actor. Accompanied by a figure of the excitable
Corporal, complete with that bayonet ("they don't like
it up them, they don't").
Scale 1:43 Approx. length 125mm
Air Warden Hodges' Greengrocers Van (Dad's Army)
sometimes hard to believe that Hodges and Mainwaring's lot were
on the same side. Here we reproduce the greengrocer's delivery
van in authentic livery copied exactly from original stills,
and accompanied by a figure of the irascible Warden.
Scale 1:43 Approx. length 135mm
