Yes, this bet is lost on technical grounds - still convinced we will get to 50

Found this one looking for something else on Wikiapedia
Desormeaux - French manufacturer of 1:43 die casts
J.R.D. - French manufacturer of 1:43 die-cast models
Miniatures du Mont-blanc - French manufacturer 1:43 (Berliet, Chevrolet, Saviem, Renault, Citroën, Jeep...)

Wow, another name I never heard of - Miniatures du Mont-blanc.

About half way down, http://genieminiature.com/Berliet.htm says they are 1/43 resin, started in 1990 with several series of French themes!  A great site - check it out - http://genieminiature.com/.  Many, many French companies are listed here that I never heard of.

JRD we counted already and I think we had Desormeaux too. Mont Blanc don\'t count if they\'re resin

I think these are supposed to be Diecast, as in metal, makers not plastic.

I stand corrected. This thread was started over 4 years ago and I forgot. Here is what was said in post #11. I think the original bet between Andrew and Christian ( I think that is who they were) was about Diecast Metal French Dinky Manufacturers. Page one shows Andrew showing a list 25 or 26 manufacturers. Here is a quote from post #11

"Now, to make things even more confusing, it transpires that Bonux was made by Cle - but they\'re all small, soft plastic kits.


Maybe this should be 50 French toy companies who made toy or model cars (although I don\'t doubt that with this loose definition we\'d get to 50 in no time!!!!)"
