Comment on this model.

This model is another from the Corgi Hauliers of Renown series.  It is a Scania 111 tractor with a two axle tilt trailer.

It is in the colours of the UK haulier Lloyds of Ludlow, which started in business in 1937.  The Scania modelled here is the first Scania purchased by Lloyds and probably dates from the mid 1970s.


The packaging is typical for Corgi.  The high quality box has a gloss finish and photo of the model.  Inside, the model is held in an expanded polystyrene tray with a clear plastic former lid.  There was no damage or missing parts on the review model.

Included with the model is a Collector Card which gives some background to the livery.  It also has the unique serial number for the model within the production run.

The only assembly required is to attach the mirrors to the cab.  The trailer has holes to connect the airlines from the tractor but the fit was difficult to achieve on the review model.


The Scania 111 has a 4x2 chassis is mainly metal with a plastic exhaust.  The thin tyres are the same on all axles and the front wheels have highlighted wheel nuts which look good.

The cab is very smart looking with an advertising sign on the roof and the mirrors have a dull chrome finish.  It is the quality of the graphics which really enhance the look, and highlighted door handles and a realistic number plate add to the realism.

Behind the cab there are coiled air lines and the wheel arches are metal.  The lights at the back have plastic lenses and there are flexible mud flaps.

The trailer has a metal structure with a dimpled finish underneath.  The suspension on the axles is simply represented and there are a couple of spare wheels which have decent tyres.  The landing legs are metal with plastic cam feet.  At the rear the lights are painted.

The trailer lower sides are metal with a ribbed planking finish and the graphics are applied well over the complex surface.  The top of the trailer is plastic with a very effective texture to represent tarpaulin and the quality of the graphics is excellent.

The tractor rolls well but does not have working steering. 

The trailer can detach from the gooseneck and stands on its landing legs which have plastic cams which rotate into an up or down position.


This is a strong and robust Corgi model which is mainly metal.  

The decoration of the Scania is excellent and the trailer graphics are really good too. 


It is good value overall.


In terms of presentation this is a very good looking model.  Although the feature count is low, it is easy to recommend.


This version of the model first appeared in January 2013 and it was made in a run of 1000 models.
