Brand/Importer Information:
Friedrich Karl Peltzer was born on February 5, 1903 in Berlin. As the son of an officer of the Kaiserliche Marine [Imperial German Navy], he encountered seafaring at a very early age. Therefore it is no great surprise that he was soon interested in model shipbuilding. He impressed friends and family with his astounding dexterity and attention to detail. It was the starting point for an aspiring company, whose foundation admittedly still took almost three decades longer.

Friedrich Peltzer is a publisher who issues the magazine “Das Tier” [The Animal]. However, the year 1932 became the year of vocational change for him. Professional model making kicks off in this year. A short time later, Peltzer sells his magazine and book publishing house to concentrate on model making. It was to become the route to success. The profession evolved from Friedrich Karl Peltzer’s beloved hobby develops - WIKING-Modellbau has taken its initial steps, initial ship models using the company’s preferred scale of 1:1250 arise from the first forms. Friedrich Peltzer states the foundation year himself – the young company waited a while before making an entry in the companies register.

Currently, Wiking is located at SIKU//WIKING Modellwelt Schlittenbacher Str. 56a 58511 Lüdenscheid, Germany. They produce plastic vehicle models in various scales of very high quality.
