Buy Corgi Captain Scarlet Diecast Vehicles

Updated on June 6, 2010

Over the years Corgi has released a lot of diecast model vehicles that tie in with popular TV Series none more so than the Gerry Anderson marionation series such as Thunderbirds or Captain Scarlet. Recently Corgi re-released some new vehicles that were reminiscent of the older Dinky toys from the 1960's that celebrated Captain Scarlet.

These lovely collectors items are beautifully packaged and make great displays. Many of these vehicles are available from Amazon and can be purchased immediatly. Ebay is also a good source for Corgi Models both new and used and they can be at extremely reasonable prices, Ebay also gives you a huge variety to choose from as well as allowing you to still find items that are no longer available.

Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle (SPV) No. CC96399

This Spectrum Pursuit Vehicle or SPV is an authentic replica of the heavily armed and armoured vehicle used by Spectrum agents. The diecast model is 5 1/2 inches long and comes complete with paintwork and signage.

By pressing down on the front of the SPV a hatch at the front opens and launches a plastic missile. The drivers door also opens by pressing the roof ejector hatch on the opposite side which when it opens reveals a nicely moulded and painted Captain Scarlet figure seated in the door. The rear tracks at the back of the SPV fold down and although this was never actually shown in the TV series it seems to be a common theme in SPV models.
