Schabak is a die cast toy producer from Germany. Schabak is equally known for its line of car models and commercial airliners models, the latter of which are mostly produced in the 1:600 scale.

Schabak produces cars of all scales and has carved a name for itself in the die cast car market, although outside of Germany, competitors Matchbox, Hot Wheels[?], Maisto[?] and Corgi[?] seem to hold a small lead in the market over Schabak.

With the die cast commercial airliners line, however, Schabak seems to hold a lead over competitors such as Herpa Wings[?], Dragon Wings[?], etcetera. Counting with well over 200 airlines as customers and even producing some models in the colors of bankrupt airlines, Schabak has become a competitive name in the world of airplane models[?].

Schabak was,for a long period during the 1990s, the only company known to have a contract to produce models of Iraqi Airways, having produced a Boeing 747 of that airline in the 1:250 scale.
