Fröwis, a one-man company from Berlin, is one of the early small German manufacturers and appeared on the market in 1978. The company still makes ready-made Berlin trams and narrow-gauge rail vehicles produced in small series in H0, H0m, H0e and N and several sets of decals for Berlin buses.  

Apart from the trams and the decal sets Fröwis has manufactured injection moulded plastic kits of various Ford Transit, Mercedes-Benz L206 and Hanomag-Henschel F25 models. These are no longer available from Fröwis, but different versions of the Mercedes have appeared on the market as ready-made models from IMU (?) later.
