In the past I have both praised Corgi and criticised them and perhaps of late there has been more of the latter. Whilst as I have said there has been much to moan about, today I think Corgi is due a pat on the back. Why? I hear you ask. The answer is that despite every thing, Corgi have not lost touch with their customers indeed they engage with their customers more than most diecast companies. They have been doing this in a variety of ways via their website, Facebook, Twitter and Utube .In addition you can sign up to their newsletter/email updates to get the latest news and you can join the Corgi Collectors Club to get even more involved. I particularly like the interesting features that appear in their Diecast Diaries and this month is no exception, more of that in a moment. For aviation fans there is another feature called Aerodrome, another good read. Free competitions, Corgi calendar wallpaper for your computer and an opportunity to upload photos of your Corgi models to the Corgi website are all opportunities to engage with the company. Finally Corgi can be found at various events around the country which is a chance to talk to the Corgi staff and have your say. For my money they are, as a company, working hard to engage with us collectors and deserve our support and appreciation.
Returning to the afore mentioned Diecast Diaries, this months offering has a great feature on the making of a Corgi model of the Lancaster Bomber.
