There were lots of minis and even a couple of mini vans but Corgi reckoned they needed another and came out with the Austin-badged Countryman.

It is only available in the summery shade of light turquoise and the box also contained two surf boards and a guy in swimming trunks. The guy got lost in this case but the car has survived well. The interior is firm plastic, a nice change to the flimsy thin film of other issues. It has nice replacement surf boards in a replacement roof rack.

It’s a pretty model and not one you’ll see a great deal of as it wasn’t cheap with the extra bits and pieces and soon became superceded by the new minis, #334 with opening everything.

Apart from a chip on the nearside front wing and small marks on the roof the paintwork is excellent. The suspension is sound and it even has an original aerial. The rear doors open in line and the windows are clean.
