At first the company may have just been created as a garage kit maker due to our love for sculpting, but thanks to the support and encouragement from the fans, we have grown into a top-class manufacturer. I am confident we still have much more ahead of us, and we will continue to grow while bringing everyone an enjoyable hobby life along with us!
