Tamiya is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of plastic model kits and radio-controlled cars. The company was founded by Yoshido Tamiya as a sawmill in Shizuoka, Japan, in 1946, but soon specialized in plastic products and released its first model kits in the mid-1950s. The range comprises detailed cars (mostly in 1/24th, 1/20th and 1/12th scale), motorbikes, ships, planes and military vehicles. The first radio-controlled car was introduced in 1976. In the 1990s, Tamiya also started offering finished diecast models of sports and racing cars in the "Collector’s Club" series, notably a 1991 Lotus 102B (the original car was sponsored by Tamiya) and other Formula 1 cars in 1/20th scale, super sports cars in 1/12th scale, Nissan Skyline GT-R and Nissan R390 GT1 racing cars in 1/43rd scale, and Japanese sports cars in 1/64th scale. Built plastic models of cars and motorbikes in bigger scales have been released in the "Masterwork Collection" series, military vehicles in the "Military Miniature Collection" series. These plastic models are made in Philippines, where Tamiya opened a factory in 1994. Furthermore, 1/43rd scale McLaren Formula 1 cars made by Onyx in the early 1990s were marketed under the Tamiya name, since Tamiya had an exclusive licence to produce McLaren models at that time.
