Maker Revell Incoporated

Maker Details Revell was founded in 1943[a] as a plastics molding firm called Precision Specialties in Venice, California, by Lewis H. Glaser a California entrepreneur. The company made a variety of products contracted for different companies. One of the first toy related products were HO scale (1:87) train sets, including locomotives, and a variety of cars along with buildings. The building line was extensive, including a farm group, a suburban passenger station, and a variety of utility structures. Many of these Revell originals were later reproduced in other scales. Reportedly, the name Revell came from the French word reveille meaning "new beginning". The Revell logo at the time was an almost spooky, ragged relative of today's design.
