Ilario Chiera was born in Annecy, France, in 1965. In 1984, he started assembling 1/43rd scale resin kits for a model car shop in his home town, but already one year later he introduced his first own models under the name of Hilario. After having worked for Hostaro, another French manufacturer of resin handbuilt models, in the early 1990s, Ilario Chiera created the Carbone 43 and Ilario ranges in 1996, first focusing on classic Ferrari cars. The Ilario main range of premium 1/43rd scale resin models still exists today, now concentrating on luxury cars from the first half of the 21st century. Similar models, all of French prototypes (Bugatti, Delahaye, Delage, Talbot-Lago, Voisin), have been released in the Chromes range since 2010, while the focus of the Contact range lies on special-bodied Ferrari cars and on racing cars by Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz from the 1950s. In early 2014, Ilario introduced the Nickel range with models produced in slightly higher quantities (250 items per issue), in multiple versions and packed in simpler boxes, thus allowing a lower price.
