(KS) There has been some discussion on the history of Scottoy online recently, so we have decided to republish this older article from Model Auto Review 208, published 7 Dec 2006. The Editors are unsure if Scottoy continued much past 2006; certainly there are items in the proposed production list for TelModel below which we can find no trace of being produced.
The Editor and Publisher of Model Auto Review, Rod Ward, contacted Jonathan‘s ex-partner, Antonio, a number of times after Jonathan left to concentrate on his industrial fasteners business (bolts and screws). See article below. After no real replies, it was assumed that Antonio was unable to find the time or enthusiasm to continue the development of Scottoy on his own. Certainly nothing more was produced to Rod or others’ knowledge.
Rod Ward’s opinion at the time was that they were wasting their time with the TelModel idea – the models fell between two stools. They were neither authentic reproductions of old toys, nor were they high-quality scale models, up to current quality standards. Rod’s store, Modelauto, had great trouble selling the TelModel Fiat 850s – the final stocks having to be disposed of on eBay at very large discounts.
The best-selling Scottoy models were initially produced to order for Modelauto – the replica scooters. Modelauto sold many hundreds of these and then Scottoy got large orders for them from other distributors as well.
Rod Ward would have liked them to produce the Costa Line cruise ships, of which Mercury had made a very interesting 1:1200 scale range. The Costa family were clients of Jonathan’s partner, so they could have obtained permission to use their funnel logo, etc. But Rod believes that the two partners were motivated by their passion for the old Mercury toy cars, and that they were not at all interested in making ships even though the scooters Rod had encouraged them to make had been such a success.
The partners in Scottoy had started out making copies of early Mercury toy cars for their own collections, hence their lack of interest in the scooters or ships. Rod also asked if they would make copies of the very collectable Mercury aircraft, but they were similarly uninterested, unfortunately. Scottoy was not really a ‘business’ venture, in which someone would choose the most profitable products to make. They were really just an extension of the two owners’ collecting hobby, so unless they found items interesting for their own collections, they wouldn’t make them.
‘Beam me up, Scottoy’ says co-founder Jonathan Scott
Written by Jonathan Scott in late 2004. Now published to mark Jonathan’s departure in 2006 from the firm he co-founded.
Scottoy has reached ten years old. Incredible! I would never have believed that I would ever be able to say that, when I began the long and difficult road that has led to today. Here is the story of Scottoy: Antonio Pezzini, a dentist from Genoa, and Jonathan Scott, maker of industrial fixings from Genoa, later Varese, had both been collectors since childhood. In 1993 they saw a demand for replacement parts for obsolete Italian diecast models, especially Mercury, like the Dinky and Corgi parts sold in England. Antonio had access to the technology through his work, so their destiny was decided. Initially they looked into production methods and registration of the Scottoy and Mercury names, and realised that they could reproduce the entire models in white metal, rather than just the parts. Our first products were shown at the Marco Bossi swapmeet in Turin in 1993 and proved to be of great interest to visitors. This first batch included the Fiat 600 Multipla, Fiat 1100/103, Alfa Giulietta (never before issued), Fiat 600 and Alfa Romeo 1900.
The Lancia Appia 1st series was initially sold exclusively in the UK via Modelauto.

From 1996 some models were supplied with windows. The first Scottoy buyers were mostly Mercury enthusiasts, then marque collectors and one-make club members.

Test batch. 13/36 Lancia Flaminia grey, dark blue, white-ivory 1996 - 60. test batch, some sold to Lancia Club Holland.
The second series of the 600 Multipla was on a modified prototype base, a short series for Aquilone in Turin and Bruce Sterling in USA. The 1800, Flaminia and the last Innocenti 950, Sprint and 500 were given windows. Our UK distributor Modelauto (publishers of MAR), asked in Summer 1994 if we could produce a short series of Vespa and Lambretta scooters. So we made an initial series of 200 each type, initially exclusively for the UK. Along with the Ape three wheeler derivation of the Vespa, these were major sales successes in the Scottoy range.

Modelauto had two exclusive versions: pink Vespa and Vespa kit. The last scooters were in 1998, the Lambretta 125D with spare wheel, and in 2000 the Lambretta 125LC with enclosed engine compartment.
When the frenzy of scooter production abated, we returned to cars, but we had production problems when making the Fiat 1800 (which turned out well) and the Lancia Flaminia, which went to Club Lancia Holland in 1994, and was recast in 2001. Also in this period I moved from Genoa to Varese. To help with production we enlisted the help of others, first Enrico Niccolini of Off ’43 models, Angelo Bellotti, an associate of Mr Niccolini and proprietor of the Giocher range, and pattern maker Faustino Mattei. From 1996 our main distributor was Miniminiera, Piergiorgio and Luca Casati.

Following the scooters, in 1997 we made the Ape (bee) three wheeler, a replica of the Mercury in its open version; but we wanted a box body as well. This was crafted by Antonio Pezzini using materials he uses in his dental practice. Our first Ape promo livery was for Brill, then Abarth plugs, plus a standard version. For BEA srl Mr Antonini had a Christmas edition for his customers, the first in a long series. Miniminiera ordered others, in Gaggia, Campari and Martini liveries. Other promos included Take-off, Foritex and Piaggio France.

The first pattern maker for Scottoy was Dr Pezzini, using techniques and materials from his dental practice to modify castings or add pieces (such as taxi signs). These elaborations led to the question, are they Mercury or not? We just described the Scottoy range as 1:48 models in the style of the fifties and sixties, adding police, fire or taxi versions as demanded by modern collectors, continuing in the spirit of Mercury.
From 1998 we made non-Italian cars; Beetle, Continental, Eldorado, Golden Hawk and Bentley S3, the latter with right hand drive!

Having made big cars and little scooters, in 1999 we made a small scale model of the massive Fiat-Viberti fuel tanker from the 1950s. We planned 300 of each version.

In 1999, as Scottoy was approaching the new millennium, questions arose as to our future direction. Should we go into diecast? We spoke to Rio, Progetto-K and Brumm, to ensure that any new product would not conflict with their plans; and we decided to produce a 1:43 scale Fiat 850. Giocher were already making the Fiat 600 Multipla and Coriasco, and could handle the 850 parts, so Faustino Mattei made a prototype, and we calculated that tooling costs would break even at 15,000 pieces, if we could sell them. The birth of TelModel! The 850 made less concessions to the ‘Scottoy style’ but continued the Mercury sixties approach, with a minimum of components, unlike many current ‘handbuilt kits’ with too many parts.

The gestation was slow, but the 850 was an immediate success. At the end of 2003 the second TelModel appeared; a Fiat Ritmo. Meanwhile, the biggest activity at Scottoy was producing promotional models…

Our first collaboration with another maker to produce promo models was with Off ’43, but from 1999 we made an important link with Rio Tattarletti of Brumm, with whom we produced 30 special issues in five years, including major issues for Poste Italiane.
For the tenth anniversary of Scottoy we made a new series of the Fiat 600 Multipla. Other plans include the Mercury 2000 series in 1:43 scale, such as the Fiat 124, 125 and 132, in many versions, and Fiat 682 truck.
Tel Model plans include Fiat Ritmo five door and Fiat 1500. Mercury classic models in the 1:40 Series, limited production. New Scottoy models made from the end of 2004 include the Bianchina Panoramica, the Fiat 1100/103E (central light), the Lancia Flavia and the Fiat 1300.

As announced in MAR 207, I have handed over my part of Scottoy to my friend and partner Antonio Pezzini, so my role in the company has finished. It was a difficult decision, but after 13 years I decided that it was time to finish and spend more time with my family and personal life. Good Collecting!
