In 1968, the Belgian company Sablon introduced a range of nine 1/43rd scale diecast models, including BMW, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Renault, Lamborghini and NSU cars. The models were very detailed, but unfortunately the softener used for the tyres reacted with the plastic of the hubs, which makes it almost impossible to find a model with intact wheels today. Sablon also produced some 1/43rd scale truck models, which were not concerned by the chemical problem. The company negotiated a deal with Chocolat Jacques, a local chocolate factory, which used a part of the production for a promotion. On the bottom of these models, the manufacturer's name was replaced by "Jacques". Sablon also cooperated with other manufacturers: Yonezawa, the maker of Diapet models, distributed the Belgian model cars in special boxes in Japan, and from 1972 on, the Sablon models were marketed by Nacoral from Spain as a part of their "Inter Cars" range.
