Kovap was founded in 1991, but was built on an older Czech company which had produced tin and plastic toys since the 1940s. All Kovap models released since the 1990s are made of tin. The first issues were re-editions of German CKO Kellermann models originally made between the 1950s and the 1970s, namely German cars (VW, Mercedes-Benz) in 1/35th and a Büssing bus and a Mercedes-Benz fire engine in 1/50th scale. In addition to these replicas, Kovap has also introduced a 1/32nd scale model of a classic Hawkeye truck, a 1/43rd scale model of a Tatra 815, available as a fire engine or as a racing truck, and various tractors in 1/25th scale. In the early 1990s Kovap also produced some tin toys for the German manufacturer Schuco.
