B>RS Toys, founded by toy merchant Uno August Riese and mould maker Nils Emanuel Lundberg, released three different 1/43rd scale diecast model cars in 1936: A 1935 De Soto, a 1935 Chevrolet Master Deluxe and a 1936 Volvo Carioca. These models were probably the first diecast models made in Sweden, and their finish reminded of contemporary Tootsietoy products. RS Toys also made a racing car and a motorcycle in larger scales, but production lasted only for a few months before the company went bankrupt in early 1937. Only few of the models are known to have survived, but after the original moulds had been found, Swedish collector Kaj Wicklander manufactured a limited number of white metal replicas in the 1980s.
