Aoshima is Japan’s oldest model kit producer who market their product under the Minicraft banner. These kits are well detailed and relatively easy to assemble and fit issues are only present with the older molds.

AOSHIMA was established in 1923 in Shizuoka, Japan as an airplane research institute. In 1929, our company started to manufacture wooden model kits utilizing our accumulated knowledge and experience from airplane operations. The success of our model kits allowed us to carry our passion for quality to other outstanding hobby products.

Each product we produce meets stringent quality standards and exceeds the highest customer expectation levels. AOSHIMA will continue to work on new and innovative projects to fulfill customer needs.

Being an icon in the model industry, ASOHIMA is well known by plastic model fans both in Japan and around the world. This is a great opportunity for you to surf various traditional hobby products made by an established company who caters to the individual modeler; retailer, and wholesaler.

These are good model airplane kits to make and are reasonably priced. I have built a few of the Aoshima plastic model airplanes and there is a good range of models covering both 1/72 and 1/48 scale aircraft.
