This model is the Corgi GS84006 Best Of British Concorde in white with "Best of British" livery featuring the Union Jack.

There are no opening parts on this model. It is a simple two piece casting, as were the earlier releases, comprising a casting of the upper body and the lower body, with white plastic engine cowls and nose cone and black plastic wheels and landing gear. The "Best of British livery has the words in dark blue along the top of the fuselage, representations of the cabin windows and doors along each side, and the Union Jack on the tail fin and side wings. The Union Jack is also imprinted with images such as Big Ben, Tower Bridge, the Coronation Coach, Traction Engines, London Buses, Spitfires, Beefeaters, a Mallard Railway Locomotive and Concorde itself.

There is no interior or glazing.

All wheels are simple one piece, black plastic units representing the landing gear. The wheels do not turn.

The base of the Concorde is white metal and is marked with the Corgi Logo and CORGI on one engine, "Concorde" along the underside of the fuselage, and a tampo printed reference number "ZIN01-10-078". The base casting is held in place with seven (7) machined rivets.

I don't know when this model was issued but believe it to be somewhere between 2012 and 2014.
