About Solido

The first military vehicles, for which Solido has become particularly well known, appeared in 1961.

Solido was the brand name established in 1930 by Ferdinand de Vazeilles of the “Fonderie de précision de Nanterre” in the western Paris suburb of Nanterre, France. The company was one of the first European firms to champion the “virtues of unbreakable diecast metal”.

In 1984, older Solido dies were made in a slightly simpler form, at least in packaging, and sold as the Verem brand.

Between 2001 and 2006 Hachette released 130 Military vehicles and tanks from the Solido range including new designs from Solido. The Hachette/Solido collection were sold in plastic blisters together with water transfer decals and a reference info sheet that could be kept in specially designed hardcover folders.

Solido uses scale 1/43 for the smaller military vehicules and scale 1/50 for tanks and larger trucks also Solido has released several 1/18 scale Willy’s jeeps.
