Hornby Hobbies Ltd, current owner of the Corgi brand, recently reproduced 37 old Corgi Toys models dating back from the sixties: https://corgimodelclub.com/en-ie/collections/corgi-authentic-re-issues .
It should be noted that approx. 20% of these were in a scale ranging from 1/48 to 1/52. As an example, the car below:

Guy, does that ETAL trailer have T.I.R. in the cast, or is it added?

Modelmaniac,

There are different ETAL DAF box semi-trailers produced by Lion Car or Lion Toys throughout the years: round front, square front... They all have tilting landing legs:



This is probably one of the first models to be produced and yes it has the TIR sign cast in the die.

I hope it helps.
