Revell; toys for quality construction sets
Revell was founded in 1943 in Venice (California, USA), not far from Los Angeles. Revell focused primarily on plastic toys, accessories for dollhouses and toy washing machines. In 1947 the founder of Revell arrived, Lewis H. Glaser, the idea to build a model car from plastic parts. Which proved to be a golden idea.
Revell to Europe
In 1956 blew the model to Europe. In that year, Revell Plastics GmbH was founded in Bielefeld, Germany. A year later the headquarters were moved to nearby Bünde, where the head office is still located. Initially, only plastic model boxes sold were imported from America and England. Only in 1971 was the first own model kit (1: 8 BMW R75 / 5) was developed.
Scale models of quality
In the eighties of the last century an own development and production was set up in Germany. The quality was so high that even model kits were exported to the US.
