Model Gallery Corgi Classics 1/50 scale Bedford OB Duple Vista Coaches 
Corgi's first serious move in to the model bus collectors market came with the 1/50 scale Bedford OB coach. The model depicts one of the most popular coaches types in the post second world war period and as such offered Corgi a vast array of livery options. The model was popular and a large number of the releases were commissioned items, the model casting remained unchanged but the orginal basic plastic wheel hubs & hard tyres were replaced more detailed hubs and soft plastic tyres. I believe this page contains photographs of all the factory produced OB coaches released, however if you have any other models not featured below, and are willing to supply photographs of them for this page please email me.
