In a new UKTV original series on Yesterday, the home to four iconic brands, Hornby, Airfix, Scalextric and Corgi, opens the doors to reveal how their designers strive to shrink a new generation of might y machines.
First airing at 9pm on 11th October 2021, each of the 10 programmes follows the process from drawing board to a miniature replica.
The series observes the ups and downs of the design process as the team attempt to get the all-important detail spot on, whether it's perfecting the sound of a 1930's steam loco or the stitching on a First World War fighter plane. Subjects covered will include the Dublo Merchant Navy locomotive, Mosquitto aircraft, Pete Waterman's Chester Cathedral layout, the Advanced Passenger Train and Steampunk models.
There's a chance to marvel at Britain's best model layout builders, including Jenny Kirk and Callum Wilcox, creating miniature masterpieces in lofts and sheds.
Yesterday is on Freeview 26, Sky 155, Virgin 129, Freesat 159, BT/Plusnet/TalkTalk/YouView 26
All episodes will be available on the UKTV Play streaming service.
