We are adding in our catalogue a new model brand, so we take this opportunity to introduce you this manufacturer and show you some inteteresting data about them.
Aoshima is a japanesse brand born in Shizouka in 1924. His creator, Jiro Aoshima, created it as an Airplane Research Institute, and a few years later, in 1929, they started manufacturing their first wooden models, using their knowledge about airplane operations.
It is in 1961 when the Brand settles down with the name Aoshima Bunka Kyozai Inc., and they start developing their first plastic models. They have been growing since then, becoming one of the leader brands in plastic models in Japan.
Between their products we can find airplanes, cars, motorbikes or even scenary and fantasy characters from the japanesse culture. Even though, they are known worldwide because of their excellent car models, mainly from japanesse producers.
Now you cand find in our catalgue several Aoshima car plastic models, in scale 1:24, and military japanesse aircrafts in scale 1:72, but as the range of options is that huge in this brand, and they offer an excellent value for money, we will be including new products in order to improve the car and airplane repertory available in our web page.
