Saturday Film club: How Matchbox cars are made

We all played with model cars as children, and if you were a youngster in 1965, this is how your toys were made.The use of a wooden master 5 times full size followed by a pantograph milling machine to make the final mould fascinates me. I'd love to have a go with one!

Pathe obviously enjoyed their trip to the Matchbox factory as they had made almost the same film 3 years earlier.
