      As far as model kit companies go, few can compete with Hasegawa for both quantity and quality of product. Whether you’re searching for an accurate, intricate military aircraft to build or prefer to test your hand on a race car, Hasegawa has you sorted. 

      Who Is Hasegawa?

      Hasegawa is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of plastic model kits. Rather than specialising in one particular product, Hasegawa offers their customers everything from aircraft to military vehicles, with some science fiction figurines also thrown into the mix.

      Hasegawa is a Japanese company, meaning they’re often compared to their counterpart Tamiya. The good news is that both are available at Hobbyco!

      Like many model kit companies, Hawegawa opened its doors in the 1940s and was originally concerned only with wooden models. It wasn’t until a few decades later that plastic became widely available and gradually took over the model kit market. These days, like many of its competitors, Hasegawa exclusively manufactures plastic model kits.

      What Are The Benefits Of Model Building?

      It should come as no surprise that the team at Hobbyco are pretty big fans of building model kits. But did you know that there are actually a number of cognitive and emotional advantages to this hobby? By picking up a Hasegawa model kit, you can expect to benefit from:

      • Improved focus and concentration: Many plastic model kits come with hundreds of pieces. Understanding the relationship between each individual piece and in what order they need to be assembled takes time, patience, and concentration. Building model kits is a particularly good hobby for people — young and old alike — who struggle with these skills.
      • Stress release: Life can be pretty stressful at times, and the purpose of a hobby is to provide some sort of release. Spending a few hours on a weekend afternoon in the world of your Hasegawa model kit is the perfect way to relax and unwind. 
      • Learn a little history: Many of Hasegawa’s models, from the bestselling UH-60A Black Hawk to the popular Japanese Navy Destroyer, have occupied a unique and important place in military history. Building these models can help you learn a little more about the world while having heaps of fun! 

      Whether you choose to test your concentration skills with the Nissan Skyline GT-R or would prefer to learn about the role of the Super Hornet RAAF military aircraft, Hasegawa has the kit for you.

      Plus, if you’re in need of additional paints, tools, and supplies to put together your chosen Hasegawa model, all this — plus more — is available at Hobbyco!
