CORGI 1/50 - ALBION ARTIC WITH FLAT TRAILER AND BRICKS-LONDON BRICK COMPANY




London Brick Company is famous as the world’s largest brick manufacturer.  In the 60’s era LBC ran a fleet of more than 900 vehicles in the famous red livery and familiar circular logos.  The company absorbed a number of other brick manufacturers including Eastwoods, Redland and Marston Valley.  LBC is now owned by Hanson group.

We haven't featured an old Albion for a while, and in London Brick livery this one is absolutely gorgeous. Another of Corgi's Limited Editions, the detailing is simply superb - particularly the macho frontal, excellent lighting clusters, authentic wipers and the fine hydraulic coupling lines to the trailer, which can be detached. The sheated brick load ie well done, as is the paint work. It's just lovely. Shop here
