Grand Prix History in Scale Models

Western Models

The company was founded by Mike and Joyce Stephens in 1973 in Taunton, Somerset, in southwestern England. In the 1970s many models were produced for Danhausen   as well as Western’s own comprehensive range. During the 1980s and 1980s Western Models produced many F1 models in  different scales from 1/87th through to l/4. When Gunter Lang founded Paul’s Model Arts company, which grew out of the Danhausen, and started to produce the Minichamps range in China, Western produced some early examples for PMA. In 2007 WM founders retired and the Western Models name and logo were sold. The company then ceased production of cars to focus solely on its line of modern commercial aircraft, mostly in 1:200 scale.
