The origins of the Britains toy factory in London date back to 1893, when William Britain invented the process of hollow casting in lead and revolutionized the production of toy soldiers. The company soon became a market leader in this field. Toy figures were produced of lead until the 1960s, later they were made of plastic and diecast metal. After World War II, Britains also started production of diecast model vehicles, mainly military and agricultural vehicles. Besides farm tractors and a wide variety of farm implements, 1/32nd scale Land Rover models of various generations became one of the most common offerings and were released in many different versions, but commercial lorries in 1/43rd scale were also offered. In 1997, Britains was taken over by Ertl, and since the 1990s, the models are made in China.
