Comment on this model.

This model is from the Corgi Hauliers of Renown series.  It is a limited edition and is in the colours of C J Haynes & Son, a UK haulage company.


The model comes in the usual high quality presentation-style box with a photo of the model.  Inside, the model is contained within an expanded polystyrene tray with a clear plastic lid. 

There were no missing parts on the review model but there was a glue tail on the Scania.

Included with the model is a Collector Card which gives some background to the livery. 

The only assembly required is to attach the mirrors and aerials to the cab.  Airlines can be fitted from the tractor to the trailer.


The Scania R620 tractor is a 6x2 and underneath the transmission is modelled in metal and there is a simple front end, and large rivets are visible on other parts.  The thin tyres are the same on each of the good-looking wheels.  Thin mud flaps are present front and rear, with those at the front being a touch too long on the review model.

The cab paintwork and graphics are excellent and detailed.  The rest of the detailing is good with two aerials, a lightbar and horns on the roof, door mirrors and wipers, but the interior detail is simple.  Behind the cab there are more high quality graphics with a pair of plastic chromed exhaust stacks and coiled air lines.  The wheel arches are metal with finely detailed paintwork.  There are realistic number plates front and rear, and the rear light clusters are coloured strips. 

The curtainside trailer chassis detail is simple with the usual dimpled finish and the wheels have decent fat tyres.  The twin landing legs have plastic cam feet. 

The curtainsides are plastic but with realistic moulding detail and very good graphics with the tie-downs looking particularly good.  At the rear the doors have the hinges and bolts detailed within the casting, and the detailed graphics are applied well.


The tractor rolls well enough and it has notched steering which achieves a reasonable angle, so more interesting poses are possible. 

The trailer can stand on its support legs with the cam feet rotated down and it is reasonably level.


It is a well made model with a high metal content. 

The paintwork and graphics are very good.


The model is good value.


Corgi has produced a really good looking model with very nice paint and graphics.  It certainly makes a good display piece and is good enough to be highly recommended.


The model first appeared in the Corgi January-June 2013 catalogue.  It is a limited edition of 750 models.
The parts including collector card.
Very smart Scania cab.  The front mud flaps are a bit long.
Excellent graphics on the back too.
Coloured rear lights.
Trailer is typically simple for a Corgi model.
Graphics are very good.
Authentic looking texture on the curtainside.
Nice rear end.
