Rio Models

RIO Models are intricately detailed diecast and plastic 1:43 scale models made in Cernobbio, Italy on Lake Como, by a tool and die company of the same name.

 

Rio started as a sideline business interest to a diecasting company in Cernobbio operated by the Tattarletti family starting about 1961 (Sinclair 1979, p. 388). Besides customary etymologies for the name 'Rio', the origin as a company name is unclear.
