Footnotes

  • PRODUCTION NOTE

    In 1989 Britains re-launched thier Metal Model range as the William Britains Collection in hard transparent plastic boxes. Collectors detested these as once opened they could not be re-assembled, and retailers detested them as they did not stack well and took up a great deal of room. Much of the packaging neglected to reveal the catalogue number. By 1991 the decision had been taken to discontinue them once stocks had been cleared.
