Brand Overview

The Tamiya brand is owned and managed by Tamiya, Inc (aka Tamiya Corporation) of Japan. The brand was one of the early staples in the RC car and truck marketplace, quickly gaining notoriety in the early 1980's with their Super Champ, Grasshopper, Frog, Sand Scorcher, Fast Attack, Blackfoot, and other electric, 1:10 scale models which have since become collector classics.

Tamiya-branded RC products generally lean toward the scale detail side of the design spectrum; although, the brand does also include RC models that are not based on any full-scale variants. With a dedication to bringing detail and fun to the RC hobby market, the brand today includes over 100 models in its off-road RC market segment, alone.

The brand is distributed all over the world via Tamiya, Inc's massive and well-established distributor network making Tamiya RC kits and parts readily available at countless online and local retailers around the globe.
