Die cast car Leyland Princess 2200 HL, Sandglow
The Princess modelled can be seen on display at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, as it was used by Top Gear in an episode looking at BL cars. The team bought three cars, one each, Jeremy Clarkson driving a Rover 3500 SD1 V8, Richard Hammond piloting a Triumph Dolomite Sprint and James May in the Princess modelled. James defended the Princess, quite rightly, as the most interesting and forward looking car BL ever made, but the episode is probably most remembered for the team filling every cars interior entirely with water and attempting to drive the sealed cars around the test track while wearing dry suits; the Princess won with ease. BL project ADO 71, universally known as the wedge Princess, was originally given the product planning name Diablo and started development in 1970. Stylist Harris Mann initially envisaged it as a hatchback but internal politics overruled this as the Maxi and forthcoming Rover SD1 used this body style. It was launched in 1975 under three brand names, Austin, Morris and Wolseley, as the 18-22 Series indicating the two engines, an 1800cc 4-cylinder and a 2200cc 6-cylinder. Its initial reception with both customers and media was very promising; the cars daring styling and comfortable ride were much praised. However, within six months it had been re-launched as the Princess by Leyland and strikes disrupted both quality and delivery schedules. A total of 224,942 were produced.

Scale : 1:43
The 1:43 scale is mainly used for automotive miniatures (cars, trucks, fire, etc.). A car in the 1:43 will be 43 times smaller than the actual car. If the car is 4 m long, for example, the miniature will measure 4 inches / 9.3 cm long (400/43 = 9.3). The 1/43 scale miniatures are approximately 1,5 inches / 4 cm in length.

Type of product : Diecast model car
The miniature cars are metal and already assembled. No tools are required. The miniatures are delivered already painted and decorated. You can, of course, paint them a different color. You just can put them on display or play with them..
