Corgi Toys GS6; Rocket Age Gift Set; Bloodhound & Thunderbird Missile Systems & Vehicles

 

I'm quite proud of myself getting this huge gift set together, just the thing for the boy who wants to precipitate the Suez Crisis or to respond to the global threat from the USSR. In addition to all this cold war hardware Corgi were producing the Corporal Missile system too. Three different ballistic missile systems in one toy range. I suppose it was only 14 years after the end of the Second World War and we were still a heavily armed nation, conscription was still a fact of life and the military was a lot more relevant to boys lives then.

GS6 the Rocket Age set was produced in 1960/1961, the size of the set probably limited sales so the few extant examples sell for a very high price.

This group has been put together using models at one time owned by Little Wheels and subsequently sold.
