The 1959 video features scenes from Westway Models which at the time was based near London, England. Until its closure in 1998, it was the oldest aviation model maker in Europe.

This vintage short film on YouTube came to our attention. Our appreciation goes to British Pathé for making this film available.

Pacific Miniatures became involved with Westway when it purchased its assets out of receivership in 1995.

We attempted to operate it for three years before closing down entirely in 1998 and centralized production in Fullerton while maintaining a sales presence in Europe.

The video is a real find and the narration and background music are entertaining.
