Two models by Demac are shown on the excellent Stop the Drop Auction site, and described thus :

The above models appear to have sold for 1,600 and 1,400 respectively, and are illustrated below.

Two other 0 gauge models are known, an ex NER 4-4-4 tank loco in LNER livery, powered by a coarse scale clockwork motor and an ex clockwork LNER 2-6-2 tender loco, Green Arrow. The latter loco has been converted to 12v DC three rail electric operation.

All four models are marked Demac, but who is, or was, Demac? An engineer employed by Matchbox has been suggested. Any information will be appreciated.
