Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions about plastic ship models or battleship models? Here are answers to questions we commonly receive about model ship kits.

Who Makes the Best Model Kits?

Many companies manufacture ship kits. However, not all of them offer the highest quality models. Plaza Japan carries only plastic model kits, parts, and tools from trusted brands in the world of plastic model ship kits. Our store stocks products from Fujimi, Pit-Road, Aoshima, Hasegawa, and others.

Are Plastic Model Ships Hard to Build?

The difficulty of model building depends on the model you purchase. Model kits come with instructions to walk you through each step of the model shipbuilding process. You can buy and build advanced models if you’re a beginner-level model kit.

What Do You Need to Build a Model Ship?

Each model kit will have different requirements about what tools you need. Generally, you'll want a ruler, hobby blade, masking tape, and model paint. Don’t worry—you can find all the model kit tools you need at Plaza Japan.

What is the Most Expensive Ship Model?

The age and availability of certain ships and battleship models can cause them to sell for a lot of money. In 2015, a 12-foot replica model ship sold for about $206,000! You won’t have to spend anywhere near that much money for one of Plaza Japan’s high-quality model kits.
