Yoshio Tamiya founded Tamiya in 1946. He first got into the modeling business by building a wooden ship model. Tamiya became known for his toy model kits and radio controlled (RC) cars. He gained popularity among car building hobbyists for his plastic car models, which were easy to assemble and increased the demand for car model kits.
With plastic car model kits, the car building hobby became more accessible. The Brabham BT44B car model kit is one example of what Premier Car Models offers for customers who prefer a car model kit. It is also possible to modify car kits by ordering specific parts, which makes PCM’s car model kits a great choice for a collector looking to build a unique car.
Premier Car Models is proud to offer a variety of Tamiya products including RC cars, Rally car kits, and car models for beginners and adults. All our car models and kits are made with accuracy and great care using 3D printing technology and CNC (Computer Numerical Control). Our manufacturing process ensures the highest quality car models on the market.
In 1976, Tamiya entered the RC market with the Porsche 934 RSR model. Since then, Tamiya became a worldwide leader in car models. The Porsche Jägermeister and Valliant Disc models are available through our website. As vintage cars from the 1970s, these models are highly valuable and known to perform well in championships such as Daytona, Sebring, and more. They feature paint-etch designs, openable doors, among many other details of our careful construction process.
Tamiya cars are some of our most popular models; with their sleek design and brand-name recognition, it is easy to see why Tamiya’s are loved by beginner and lifelong hobbyists. We also offer top-of-the line models like the Porsche Carrera GT. The Carrera GT was a sports car manufactured my Porsche between 2004 and 2007.
