A History of White Metal Transport Modelling
A Who's Who in the Industry by David Wright & Ray Strutt
This book is written by myself and Ray Strutt, and 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, we tracked the fortunes of the white metal industry. We have selected many colour pictures never seen before from a store of over 600 images.
We bring 60 years of collecting experience to the task, and this 280-page book is 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. This book was launched in November 2011, and a few copies remain, available direct from me.
