Ratio Plastic Models

1959 -     

Ratio Plastic Models (Webster Development Co.) was the successor brand to the wooden model range "Scale Models by Ratio".

The brand still exists, as a range of 00-gauge and N gauge rolling stock kits and accessories, the modern range becoming part of Peco family in the 1990s.

Catalogue text:

... Ratio has moved four times. We began operating in North West London at Chorley Wood, Hertfordshire, then in 1961 moved to Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire and on to Sturminster Newton, Dorset in 1972. We have now been in Buckfastleigh, Devon since 1986, located in an old woollen mill. as can be seen, Ratio has been moving steadily westwards over the years!

High quality is the Ratio standard, exemplified by the workmanship and attention to detail in our kits. We employ our own toolmakers who take the time and trouble to get the kits as near to the prototype as is possible using the injection moulding process. The use of injection moulding allows us to mass-produce kits which have crisp outlines and fine detail.
