    Can someone give me a good guesstimate as to how big the Triumph will be, how tall and how long in inches? Its 1:12 scale but that doesn't tell me much.

    Corgi website is still saying 'Autumn 2022', which we're surely in now...

    According to Wikipedia the real Scrambler is 2212mm long, which should make the model about 18.5cm.

    1/12 for a motorbike model is pretty big. I believe Corgi made the right choice in choosing that scale for the bike model. I have a 1/12 Yamaha police bike. It's around the same length as a 1/18 car. Here's a pic to give you a rough idea of the scale of a 1/12 bike. That's a 1/18 car beside it.

    Got a Corgi catalogue in the post today after ordering some Airfix bits :) Scrambler length is given as 209mm.

    And it has arrived. They did a really good job here, but it is very delicate. This one is staying' in the box for the most part. Of course, Corgi USA aka Hornby Hobbies still showing "pre-order."

    That does look nice - I could believe it was a full-size bike! I'd love to see some shots of it outdoors (if you dare given the fragility).

    I will, if it ever stops raining in California.

    Ooooooh. I definitely want one of those! And a Stingray too if I'm not mistaken!

    That looks great. Glad they went with 1/12 instead of the previously planned 1/24 for it. Imagine how tiny it would've been if it was 1/24. Would not have been as detailed that's for sure. 1/12 is just perfect to capture the details on a motorcycle.
