Champion Model Co

(Cleveland, Ohio, USA)

Champion Decal Company originally started out as Champion Model Company, under the ownership of Max Gray in 1940. Rich Meyer bought the decal business from him in 1963, and the company continued under Connie Allard, finally closing for business September 2010.

While best known today for their line of decals, the Champion Model Company of Cleveland, OH, started with O gauge models, which included, according to the Trade Topics column in the May 1941 issue of Model Railroader, 'over 50 different O gauge reefer car sides, nearly all available in two or more changes of car number.' Champion Model Co also produced a range of body kits in (US) 00.
