Between 1969 and the mid 1970s this Spanish die-cast firm produced many near exact copies of Corgi and Dinky models, often adding features like opening doors and better interiors too. They appear to be manufactured to a high standard and, as you can see from the photographs, the detailing is excellent.

Some are so much like the Corgi originals that I decided to include the Corgi copies in my catalogue for this era and so now have a few to sell.

This is the Chevrolet Astro 1.6, an experimental car, and in a paler shade of metallic blue that the 347 model.  The body lifts in a similar fashion but there are no people inside.

The wheels are much more realistic alloys than the Whizzwheels too!

An interesting addition to anyone's Corgi collection.
