Remember - on most pages you can click pictures to see more photos!
These are photos of the actual model available. Remember that these toys are around 50 years old! All models advertised are original, not restored or repainted unless I have stated otherwise.
It’s 1998 and thirty years after the first Daktari Land Rover appeared Corgi release another that uses almost exactly the same casting! Admittedly it gets made in China but the model sits very nicely indeed with its predecessors and is well worth getting hold of.
The wheels, of course, are a great improvement on the Whizzwheels but these are fixed so, in a sense, goes back to the very early days in that respect. These were not made to be driven around the floor by the seems of things.
The rear window is deeper than the previous one and the black camouflage paint lines thicker. There is now a Wamaeru sticker running the length of the pick-up section and the interior is brown. There is an odd panel on the floor of the rear section which effectively divides the floor in two where before it was continuous and probably some other minor differences but it is generally the same old 438!
The detailing is marvellous now with super little Land Rover badges and I like the headlamp treatment too.
These sets are not expensive. This particular one is as new with the chimp and lion characters unopened.
