As you can see, it is clear how Tamiya made a model without missing a boom, when models that are ordinarily standing in a model shop are displayed in an organized manner in this way. Moreover, considering the data collection ability that supports it and the production capacity of the prototype, it is nodded that the Tamiya kit is popular.

People who come to see are quite a wide range from children to elderly people, such as "It was in this place of depression", "This radiochond father was playing when you were about the year" and a conversation that tells the history of Tamiya It was playing.
