Robbe models are a complete term in itself and refer to models produced by model manufacturing company Robbe. One of the oldest RC models producing companies in the world, this firm was started by a farmer named Robert Becker in 1924 and is named after his nickname, 'Robbe'. Initially at the time of starting, Robbe models were simple timber models made out of balsa wood. By the year 1945, RC models had made an appearance and though they did not catch on immediately, Robert's son saw an opportunity. Robbe soon began manufacturing RC Kits made from balsa wood, and this is what the term Robbe models is popularly associated with today.
During the 50s, the RC Model Kits industry saw an unprecedented boom as the economy was flourishing and people had more money to spend on hobbies. In 1960, Robbe tied up with a Japanese company to manufacture their own RC systems. These later became the world's largest selling RC systems. This collaboration made Robbe a leading name in the world of RC Manufacturers and Robbe models, an even bigger one. Soon the company decided to sell their RC models worldwide.
