Ertl was founded by Fred Ertl sr. in Dyersville (Iowa) in 1945 and is best known for its agricultural models made of diecast. In the 1970s the company also started production of plastic model kits, a product line which was expanded in the 1980s due to the acquisition of kit manufacturers AMT and MPC. Diecast models cars in 1/18th, 1/24th, 1/43rd and 1/64th scale, as well as collectible banks in the form of commercial vehicles in various scales, were introduced in the same decade. The most important model car range is called "American Muscle". Also in the 1980s, the production of the Ertl models was transferred from the USA to Mexico and South Korea, and finally to China. Ertl was taken over by Racing Champions, another modelcar manufacturer, in 1999 and is now part of the RC2 group. The plastic model kits section was sold to the company Round 2 in 2007.
