Corgi Vanguards model - £20

The phrase “my dad had one of those” is quite commonly heard at classic car shows. Now your dad can have his 80s or 90s classic all over again, thanks to Corgi Vanguards. There are scores of scale models, most of which replicate fairly mundane cars like the Austin Allegro or Peugeot 309.

What really sets Vanguards models apart is the level of detail. They are fairly small at 1:43 scale, but everything down to the alloy wheel design and cabin is recreated intricately. They really are beautiful, although they can be quite delicate, so fathers will likely want to keep littles ones away.
