I can barely remember the 1960s TV series 'The Saint' featuring Roger Moore as Simon Templar, but the Corgi Toys model of his iconic Volvo P1800 made a lasting impression. I believe that Volvo stepped in when Jaguar wouldn't play ball. The stick man (Saint) logo was a Corgi addition that didn't feature on the real car, which also had wire wheels rather than the plainer style used by Corgi and replicated here. Thanks to Jan Barnier for the base image (11-Mar-16).

After the positive response to the fictional Corgi Toys ERF KV, I am encouraged to offer the Commer BF in the same livery. Corgi produced a number of its diecast models in various combinations of this attractive blue and yellow livery (30-Sep-14).

This fictional image was inspired by a similar unit that was operated by Mettoy Ltd, owners of the Corgi Toys brand, and which it is believed may have appeared in model form. It is based on a preserved Karrier Bantam Mobile shop/ display unit that was rallied in the livery of the North Western Gas Board in the 1980s. The body is most probably by Smiths of Gateshead who built many similar units (03-Sep-21).

To complete this short series of toy-inspired trucks, here is the logical companion to the Dinky Toys version. Like Meccano with its Dinky Toys brand, Mettoy took the opportunity to promote its Corgi Toys range with a selection branded models. Several variations of this blue and cream livery appeared on the Bedford CA van. In terms of the models, I can't vouch for the accuracy of either the vehicle type or livery, which has an uncanny resemblance to Wall's Ice Cream. This ERF is entirely fictional (22-Jun-14).

This image is inspired by the 1950s Dinky Toy Bedford Jetka Pallet Van, which was modelled on an actual vehicle In the company's fleet. Fitted with an early version of what is now termed a 'walking floor', it was used for moving pallets of materials between the Meccano factories in Liverpool. In model form, it was to become one of the most sought-after items in the Dinky Toys range. Whilst this clearly isn't a Bedford, hopeful it captures something of the appeal of the original (21-Jun-14).
