50 Years of Toni Clark practical scale
The name TONI CLARK stands for excellence in scale aero models. Experience shows that the average hobby modeler is able to assemble them with ease, and fly them with pleasure.
1970 Start-up year of the Practical Scale Company in Britain.
1974 TONI CLARK relocated to Germany and launched his new
Practical Scale Company.
1976 TONI CLARK was awarded exclusive rights to import, and distribute QUADRA engines throughout Germany. This marked the beginning of the 'large model' era.
1980 Was the year that Toni Clark and Gerhard Reinsch—who had recently gained his Degree in Aeronautical Engineering—cemented their partnership. Reinsch has been building model aircraft for as long as he can remember.
1984 The year that the TONI CLARK-GERHARD REINSCH practical scale Company imported their first TITAN ZG 38. Right away this highly
praised engine was a winner.
1992 The Company moved to new factory premises.

2010 Our company was awarded the exclusive distribution rights, for VALACH four-stroke engines, throughout western Europe.

2016 Sadly, after a short but severe illness, our founder, Toni Clark, passed away on June 5th., at age 81. He will always be missed, and his memory fondly respected, by the entire staff of, Toni Clark practical scale GmbH. I shall continue to manage the company, as I have done for many years.
2018 Paolo Severin retired and from now on the Paolo Severin Super Scale Kits are produced by Toni Clark practical scale in Luebbecke: "Italian design made in Germany".
2019 Gerhard Reinsch and René Neumann are now managing directors with equal rights. René has also been a model pilot since early childhood, Bachelor of Engineering and has been my right-hand man since 2011.
