Out this month, you can read the definitive history of white metal modelling all in one book. ...
A History of White Metal Transport Modelling: A Who’s Who in the Industry - out on 17th November, or order your copy online now.
Written by well-known experts, Ray Strutt and David Wright, A History of White Metal, represents many years hard work, assembling the personal stories of over 160 pattern makers, mould makers, casters, builders, producers and retailers.
From the pioneers of the late 1950s to the large scale producers of later years, they track the fortunes of the white metal industry. They have selected many colour pictures never seen before from a store of over 600 images.
Ray and David bring 60 years of collecting experience to the task, and this brand new, 280-page book will be truly absorbing for anyone remotely interested in knowing how the white metal hobby came together.
ModeleX, the 1990s show that brought together enthusiasts from all over the world, has a chapter of its own, and elsewhere unique connections between those featured are uncovered.
With a Foreword by HRH the Duke of Gloucester, a genuine and enthusiastic collector, this book can only be described as ‘the truly definitive history of white metal ever produced’, and is a must for any collector’s bookshelf.
White Metal is going to be launched at BP Fair's Sandown Toyfair on Saturday 19th November, or click here to order your copy now.
