TAMIYA model making – Quality first

“First in Quality Around the World” – our well-known advertising slogan is more than just a catchy saying. It is a promise that focuses on the exceptionally high quality of Tamiya model kits and RC vehicles. The success story of the Tamiya model kits began in the 1960s with detailed plastic models that quickly helped the Japanese brand into the role of an innovative market leader. For more than 45 years now, state-of-the-art RC cars, trucks, and tank models have also been part of the versatile Tamiya range, which delights RC beginners and die-hard professionals alike.

From the RC TT-02 Chassis First Try On-Road to the heavy duty 1:14 RC SCANIA 770S 8x4/4 and our high-quality military model vehicles, our wide range of products offers everything the heart of every model builder desires.

To ensure the highest quality in all our products, we place great emphasis on highly qualified employees, strict quality controls and in-house production of all parts in our production facility. The result is RC vehicles and model kits that set new standards and express what we strive for: Quality out of passion.

TAMIYA model making – a hobby for young and old

Tamiya model making is a hobby with numerous advantages! Model builders often find working with a Tamiya model kit to be pure relaxation and use tinkering, collecting or driving as a wonderful balance to everyday stress. In addition, building and driving the vehicles is an excellent communal activity that promises hours of entertainment and fun with friends or family. In this way, RC model building brings generations together and creates strong bonds through common interests.

Furthermore, Tamiya model building promotes the ability to concentrate, technical understanding, solution-oriented thinking and fine motor skills. Certainly, after all, the handling of RC models requires the highest level of attention and plenty of tact. In addition, RC model building creates a basis on which you can deal with scientific topics such as technology, mechanics, architecture, and the physical functioning of vehicles in a practical way.

On a creative level, the fast vehicles stimulate the imagination and invite you to bring your stories to the road. This opens up countless scenarios that you can relive with RC models. In the process, you may feel a pleasant pang of nostalgia because many adult RC lovers feel transported back to their childhood when tinkering and driving.

Modelling FAQs: Answers to frequently asked questions

What types of model making are there?

Model making is an extremely multifaceted affair whose spectrum ranges from vehicle, aircraft, military, and ship model making to architectural model making and RC model making. In addition, a distinction can be made according to the materials used: In addition to plastic model making, which is particularly common for vehicles and RC models, there is also wooden model making, for example.

What does RC stand for in model making?

The abbreviation "RC" stands for “radio-controlled” or “remote controlled” and thus indicates that a model can be controlled remotely.

What do you need to build an RC car?

To build your RC car, you first need a Tamiya model building product set that contains the necessary parts. You will also need the appropriate tools, such as screwdrivers (PH1+,PH2+), side cutters, cutting pads and knives, as well as any accessories for customising or tuning your RC vehicle. It is always best to read the product description carefully. This will tell you what is included in a set and which parts you may need to purchase separately.
