Australian "Aeroflyte" model kit manufacturer

Aeroflyte began from the interest of Rob Thompson and Rex Meyers in building and flying model aircraft in 1950. In the late 40's and early 50's they worked after school and in the school holidays for Bill Evans, who at that time operated a small kit manufacturing business called Model Aircraft Industries. In 1956 both became employed full time in their Aeroflyte business, and construction of their small factory began.
