Hasegawa

Japanese firm Hasegawa has been one of the world's most popular kit-makers for decades, offering subjects across various scales and genres. It's arguably most famous for its aircraft, but it also has ships, cars, motorcycles, sci-fi, military, real space subjects and more. For many years, some of its 1/72 and 1/48 aircraft were the best available, but still stand up well against more modern toolings.
