According to a posting on the french-based Mil-info-over-blog, Bryan Evans, the one-man shop behind the rise of Stretton Models and Tank Museum, passed away at the age of 72 on January 8th, 2015. At one time, we were a big importer of his line, who created a wide array of 1:43/1:50 scale military vehicles which can still be viewed on our site. Several years ago, when Solido stopped making military vehicles – which served as the basis for many of his creations – and in conjunction with his poor health, we had to suspend their availability, hoping one day we could resurrect the line.
We will miss Bryan, who was a true gentleman and spent many hours on the phone with us discussing the industry at-large. We extend our condolences to his family.
