Scania LT145

This is a bonneted control Scania from the 1980s and not one we were familiar with in the UK.

In the closing days of Corgi Toys This Scania, a short bonnet Mercedes and a Scammell/Leyland Land Train came into the Corgi Toys range. Previously Corgi Toys trucks had been around 1:50 scale, but these are smaller, probably around 1:72 scale, more Corgi Juniors than what van Cleemput refers to as 'true Corgis'. In January 1983 there were three releases with this cab, a container truck/box van (1132), a quarry tipper (1133) and a silo truck (1134). The container truck pictured in the Great Book of Corgi has the Danzas logos positioned differently and the text states that the toy was not released.

The cab was widely used in the early post-Mettoy period and I've shown the ones I have found so far below. Most of the model numbers are guesses as the trucks are not boxed.
