Metro Hobbies furnishes popular Tamiya Remote Control (RC) cars and plastic model kits.
Tamiya model kits include incredible replicas of WWII and post-WWII aircraft, including limited-edition models and battleships.
Tamiya RC cars are ready to run, but some Tamiya models need assembling. These include chassis kits that enable enthusiasts to select a separate body. To-scale replicas are available of popular car brands, as well as old and classic Tamiya models from the 1980s and 1990s.
Tamiya RC models come in the form of off-road, on-road, buggies, monster trucks, drifters and two-wheel and four-wheel drives, to name just a few of the styles available.
Tamiya models that require assembly can utilise Metro-stocked Tamiya brushed and brushless motors, cement and metal primer, as well as polycarbonate spray for Tamiya RC kits. Flat and gloss acrylics, lacquer paints and aircraft spray are also available for Tamiya plastic model kits.
Metro supplies many replica models, including Rolls-Royce, Mercedes, Lockheed Martin, Citröen and many more renowned car brands with detailed depictions of classic features, in addition to Tamiya original and new remote control cars.
Most models are scaled around 1/10 of the cars' size, although, some are as small as 1/18 of the original.
WWII and post-WWII model aircraft are 1/32, 1/48 and 1/72 of Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Boeing and other vintage jets. Battleships are scaled as small as 1/700 of their original size, and some Japanese motorcycle bikes and engines are 1/6 of the originals.
