Our employees will remain at home until the order has been lifted. A good portion of them are finally getting to build some of their own Tamiya projects. Furthermore, our Customer Service Department continue to be available Monday-Friday to answer email inquiries at usa_support for general product inquires, web-order questions, and product advice.

Be safe everyone. Be kind, enjoy the at home activities, and by all means share your Tamiya model and Radio Control projects on our Facebook and Instagram pages! We want to see how you’re passing the time.

Tamiya USA - Tue, 03/31/2020 - 11:31

This is Tamiya America’s newly finished display sample of the 1/16 R/C Sheridan tank! Staff members from our office built this kit and painted the basic green color paint job. However, the finished build seen here was completely finished and weathered by renowned and published model builder Jim Wechsler!

Jim took our basic build and added his renowned flare to give this tank a true to life look and feel.

Enjoy these fun pics from Jim’s makeshift photo booth in his home work room!
