Tamiya Scale Models
Plastic Model Series
Tamiya's scale models possess such intricate detail that they are often described
as "museum items". These models are nearly perfect replicas of full-size
objects, shrunken down to a smaller scale. Through the process of assembling,
painting and finishing these accurate models by hand, one is provided with a
unique "three-dimensional" insight into the shape and vast detail
of the full-sized object.
Tamiya was founded by Mr Yoshio Tamiya in Shizuoka, Japan in 1946, and nowadays, they become the leading manufacturer in the model market, offering more than 300 different products, in the fields of precision static models, high performance radio control vehicles, battery- and solar-powered educational models, sailboat models, acrylic and enamel model paints, and various modeling tools and supplies.
