It all started in 1946, when Mr. Yoshio Tamiya, the founder, opened a saw mill and lumber business in Shizuoka. Tamiya ventured into modeling in 1948, with a scale wooden ship model kit. Since then, Tamiya has continued to grow, producing models known as "First in Quality Around the World".
Today Tamiya is possibly the most famous model manufacturer in the world. We concentrate more on their RC offerings with a focus on tarmac 1/10th scale cars, supporting parts, hop-ups and body components.
