Who are we?
Modellers just like you are.
Why did we create Hinomaru Hobby Kits?
First, we got feedup with the fact that Japanese models are so expensive and in permanent out of stock in European shops. Second, because of Fine Molds and their motto: ‘Models created with hears’. We are exactly about that, devoting our hearts to the thing we love: Japan.We want you to learn who engineer Jirō Horikoshi and Captain Tameichi Hara were. Which airplanes did use Sakae engines. Why Rei–Sen’s were superior to Whildcat’s or what was the difference between Kagerō and Akizuki class destroyers?
How are we different?
We are not doing this for profit. We just got annoyed with fake stock, calling to get to know that kits are not even on the way and that the price is actually 15% higher. All our stock and prices are 100% accurate, we take in to consideration the taxes and shipment cost to your country. We source directly from Japan and can replenish stock within 5 days when there are orders. Let’s together prove that scale modelling is about sharing the passion we have.
You’re not sure about shipment cost?
We are working with FedEx for ‘over the ocean’ orders and distant Europe shipments. For all close proximity shipments we try to use DPD or delivery brockers whichever provides a faster delivery time. The costs you seen when you enter your location is the real cost that you will be charged no extra charges or late notice changes.
