The Swiss Manufacturer of Model Train in HO for DC and AC.
This Manufacturer only produces models of prototypes seen in Switzerland, including many small private road names.
The quality is superb, also their prices, but if you want one of the best and more powerful units on the market, then this is the Brand to pick.
The selection is very small, and lately they have focused in the production of series 460 with all kind of advertisement on them.
It is a complicated Company numbering their items, so you must have caution when ordering. It seems that these guys, never had a Computer as they use the same number for different units.
In the range of 280 (Class 460's) all the items have the same number on the box, but a very small label indicate what's the "name" of the locomotive. Same happens with cars.

Italeri was founded in the early 60's with that enthusiasm which only youth’s unbridled passion creates. For Italeri’s two founders had loved airplanes and military vehicles from boyhood. But they were not satisfied with the models available at the time; they wanted something more, something better. Since what they wanted was nowhere to be found, they decided to produce it themselves. Painstakingly accurate research became their pastime; and that research provided the motivating force for producing models that modelers want, models with absolutely no imperfections. The company thus asserted itself—always increasing its range of products, always growing. And thanks to the imagination and talent of the founders and their colleagues, Italeri became a leader in modeling and in time established a place for itself on the international market.
Accurate research lies behind the design and production of each of our models. Before designing a model, Italeri puts painstaking effort into researching the details of its historical subject. Attention to every little detail—from information about a vehicle’s historical use to its paint schemes in various theatres of operation, from uniform colors and insignia to equipment and stowage—allows our customers to create models that accurately portray their subjects with the highest possible degree of historical realism. We want to transform a fun hobby into a cultural statement.

Kibri a Viessmann Company is one of the 3 best Manufacturers of Plastic Kits of buildings and structures for your Model Railroad Layout.
The company was created 1895 in under the name at that time Kindler and Briel and manufactured originally only metal toy. Other materials usually came from suppliers.

Kyosho is a company committed to Leisure. Kyosho’s aim is to improve and expand the quality of life of our customers with the development and creation of high class products to be enjoyed in their leisure time.
The top brand in the RC world today, KYOSHO is credited with producing the first RC car in Japan. Now in its 40th year, now is an appropriate time to chronicle the fascinating untold story of the "DASH 1" creation in this first part of a series on the history of Kyosho.
1971: The Kyosho DASH 1 is presented at an Aircraft Pageant at Harumi International Trade Center sponsored by Mitsuboshi Shoten. From the left: Mr. Hisashi Suzuki (Founding president of Kyosho), Mr. Harukuni Takahashi (Toyota - TMSC), Mr. Tachio Yonemura (Isuzu) and Mr. Yasushi Toshimori (Nissan Omori). Three professional racing drivers were invited to run the DASH 1.
What was the first Japanese RC car ever produced? It is now 40 years since Kyosho started business and it was in 1970 that Kyosho started selling the DASH 1. Lets take a look back in time to see the birth of the DASH 1, generally agreed by the industry to be the first RC car made in Japan.
Radio control (RC) spread through the model market from the about 1960, after the Tokyo Olympics. Still regarded as luxury items, most equipment and attention was focussed on model aircraft. Many people still dreamt if RC could be adapted to an engine powered car, but there were no manufacturers to develop this into reality.
There was one person took the action necessary to bring this dream to life. This was Kyosho's founder, Mr. Hisashi Suzuki (then President of Kyosho). According to Mr. Naohiko Otsuki (President of Automodel) the almost single-handed developer of the DASH 1, it was Mr. H. Suzuki who brought up the idea.
At that time, Mr. H. Suzuki was working in and out of the U.S. Army base in Tachikawa for the import and export of toys. Through the U.S. Army, he was able to acquire the latest engine powered models available. In 1969, conscription and the Vietnam war saw many soldiers in Japan with strong interests in RC models.
Now, as seen in the photograph, the four bare-chassis were sophisticated non-RC midget cars, and could not be considered as originally designed as RC cars. When Mr. H. Suzuki showed these four models to Mr. Otsuki with the proclamation "look what's out there now", it was the very beginning of something special.

Best German Manufacturer of metal toys. We carry the line of vehicles in 1:87 scale (HO Scale)
SCHUCO’s early history was associated with Heinrich Müller who as a 17-year old developed ideas for toys. He registered numerous patents. The name of SCHUCO was given to the toy company which had been founded nine years earlier in 1921 by Heinrich Schreyer from “Schreyer und Co“. It had been setting new trends from the beginning with mechanical tin toys, such as the most popular toy of the time (20 million sold), the “Pick Pick“.
Establishing the legend
The mid-30‘s saw toy cars which are still well-known today such as the radio, commando and tumble car which does not fall off the table, and the legendary Silver Arrow become best sellers.
After the Second World War, Schuco toys were relaunched – initially these were produced solely for the American market. With the rebuilding of the factory in 1952, SCHUCO became the largest toy factory in Nuremberg with 800 employees. The sale of more than 100 million toys underpinned the impressive worldwide distribution.
In the 60‘s and 70‘s, tin was superseded by die-cast metal and plastic and resulted in the bankruptcy of the former world brand in 1976. The new owner, the English company DCM, also had to file for bankruptcy in 1980. Many tools and moulds were dispersed throughout the world and some were even scrapped.
In 1980, the SCHUCO name was acquired by GAMA, a former competitor, which re-issued the Silver Arrow racing car from that time. In 1993, GAMA merged with TRIX, Schuco had its own management structure and the brand was revived. Three years later SCHUCO became independent again.
Legendary and modern
When the Mangold family, who owned the firm, withdrew from the toy industry, the brand was sold to the Sieber family in 1999. SCHUCO became a company within the SIMBA DICKIE GROUP, which is now one of the largest in the industry. In recent years new standards have been set in terms of detail and quality thanks to innovative and creative product policies and as a result our position in the collectors’ market has expanded. Ranges such as Edition 1/87, 1/32, 1/64 and Aviation have been relaunched with extremely successful results.

The Viessmann Story
Founder Wieland Viessmann had the right vision. When searching for a market niche where he could start his own business, he chose model train accessories - his own experience as a kid contributed to his decision. But before he founded a company he became a toolmaker. After a couple of years of professional experience and another two years at a Technical College he passed his exam as mechanical engineer. From 1982 to 1987 he worked as designer for production equipment and was in charge of the warehouse and the logistics at Viessmann heating systems. This career was a good foundation for his next steps - and still today he leaves his office from time to time and is slipping back into the role as constructional engineer.
1987 That is when his success story began. A small shed in Reddighausen, a small suburb of Hatzfeld, and a few machines.
1988 Production started with 7 employees. The first HO-models were manufactured -the classic park lantern, curved post top lanterns and curved pole lanterns were introduced.
1989 the production capacity was expanded due to high demand.
1991 the first TT products came onto the market. It was a brave but successful attempt to enter this market since nobody had experience with TT gauge mainly used in the former German federal republic (DDR).
1992 Viessmann employed 27 people.
1993 a modern Viessmann production facility was opened in Hungary - long before the collapse of the Iron Curtain.
2000 a new Viessmann warehouse with over 300 square meters was opened in Hatzfeld while another production hall with over 1,500 square meters was opened in Hungary.
2004 the number of employees has increased to 220 people working at Viessmann Hatzfeld and in Viessmann Hungary.
2005 will see new facilities for seminars in Hatzfeld-Reddighausen. Users and dealers will then have the opportunity to learn everything about Viessmann products e.g. how to install tracks with catenary or how to operate digital systems.
2010 Viessmann buys KIBRI, the Plastic Manufacturer of buildings and moving cranes and vehicles.

Walkera, founded in 1994, is located at the center of Pearl River Delta - Panyu District of Guangzhou and is made up of 1500 staff. Traditionally, Walkera is an established Chinese manufacturer of remote control hobby helicopters, but the company has expanded its business to UAVs by starting with MAV production, based on its successful remote-control hobby helicopter business. Most MAVs developed by Walkera are equipped with daytime color TV camera, but none of them are in the helicopter configuration of the usual Walkera remote control models. Most of the multirotors MAV were originally developed for commercial and consumer use, but have been deployed by Chinese military and law enforcement agencies as trainers for more advanced and costly UAVs deployed in longer missions. In 2011, Walkera made famous the first commercially available 6-axis microcopter, called the Ladybird. This number one seller soon caught the attention of various manufacturers and copies of the Ladybird followed.
On June 3, 2014, Walkera opened its USA division to meet the demands on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). iUAS Inc was established and began distributing selective unmanned aircraft systems such as the QR X800, Tali H500 UAV USA Edition, QR X350 Pro UAV, VCT converters 5.8G image to WIFI, iLook+ 1080p FPV camera, Devo F12E FPV long-range radio transmitter. iUAS is also exploring the manufacturing of large scale models for cinematography, agriculture and security.
