Brothers Artur and Alfonso Henriques founded a company called Luso Celuloide in Espinho, Portugal, in the 1940s and started producing plastic toys and household items. Since the 1950s, the products were marketed under the Osul name, and around the same time, Alfonso left the company in order to start his own business called Hercules. Osul manufactured plastic toy cars in various scales, ranging from cars and trucks in about 1/87th scale the style of German Wiking models to big 1/18th th 1/25th scale cars partly equipped with friction drive or battery operated with remote control cable. Among the big scale models, there were a BMW Isetta, an American Ford Fairlane, a Citroën ID 19 and various Ford Taunus models. From 1965 on, the company started making reissues of 1/43rd scale diecast model cars from other manufacturers such as Corgi and Solido under the Metosul name.
