Brooklin Models History
The Early Days
Just under 50 years ago there was a small revolution in the world of model vehicles. This was the dawn of new era. Many fledgling companies sprang up making models of historic vehicles from white metal, a material long coveted in the world of model militaria. Standards varied widely and with very few exceptions all makers offered their models as kits. As time progressed many makers fell by the wayside until today very few survive.
Brooklin is one of those exceptions, producing handmade models since 1974, never kits but fully built and ready to display. With a focus on American automotive history between the 1930’s and the 1960’s we have modelled amongst others such Milestone cars as the 1930 Ford Model A Coupe, 1934 Chrysler Airflow and the 1948 Tucker, as well as some unusual cars such as the 1936 Stout Scarab and the 1938 Phantom Corsair.
Brooklin Models Limited is currently the world’s leading manufacturer of 1/43 scale hand-built white metal models.
Nestling in the corner of a small Industrial Estate in the Historic city of Bath, Brooklin has 5,000 square feet of production area and with its twenty-five skilled staff continue to celebrate those exciting decades of the automobile that in many ways shaped the world we live in today.
