Tamiya Yamato 1960-2010 50 years Shunsaku (13)

Also long this Web site that dormant state had been followed, and considering whether the meaning told what the 2010 year, without saying of four of five (?) I do not have a choice but to move into action. It is how important memorial year for Tamiya this year 2010, and you know so have been announced more than four months at the top page of this Web site. Tamiya plastic model for the first time ask the world, 1/800 Yamato and the May 1960 was released. Just this year in May (it is now) is what, Tamiya plastic model 50th anniversary I when such that! ! So reckless bring planning thought (?) Is “50 years of milestone,’ll let you make the first issue product of the time in their own Tamiya president!”. Fortunately, because the non-assembly of the first edition Yamato there were two in our laboratory, we were allowed to unsparingly provided. April certain day, 2010, only apo to get to met Tamiya chairman will let me take, I express to Shizuoka Tamiya headquarters. In advance to ask put in a conference room, we have arranged leave parts bag out of the box for easy assembly. Nothing you know without Tamiya president who came to the conference room to the time of promise, speechless for a moment to see what you are lined up on the table. Actually, I from where the president is entering the meeting room had been turning the movie. All from negotiations between the current planning description of in situ are left at the video. If as is here Torere is one cutting ceremony scenes, such as tree-planting ceremony, but after I was going to let you assemble towards the Tamiya staff, and went supposed to be ridiculous …. Please by all means to pay attention to chairman of talk that memory comes back to me in vivid by actually moving the hand! “What is the scoop! President is plastic model production tools you use for the first time born this time!?” one hour of video material and a large amount of near past material still image you have enjoyed this pattern is, over in the hands of masters TAC Miyamoto Director, this I have finished the work of impressive 8 minutes a little time! May 15, 2010 (Saturday), the 16th (day) limited. Tamiya Open House East Building 2F spectrum Hall and video exhibition scheduled at! Of course finished work itself is also exhibition! Those who go to the Shizuoka Hobby Show, it is also not forget to visit the Tamiya headquarters! ! (2010/05/10)

After a long time of the update, let’s introduce the exhibition of Tamiya open house was held at the same time Shizuoka Tamiya headquarters and Shizuoka Hobby Show of this year. It is a “1,000,000 units Tiger Panther breakthrough anniversary sale”. Panther tank that was released in January 1962 will show explosive sales, while birth to Tiger tank and a synergistic effect that was released after six months, you salvation as a Tamiya was likely to fall into a management crisis of revival. And I anniversary sale has been carried out in the place where tries to round three years passed since the sale. Of ordinary laboratory was aware of the existence of the sale in since the beginning of the shame the 21st century, was a small image is an opportunity that you saw in the net auction. One day, Tamiya 1 / 21M40 Big shot (!), But I was exhibited, orange ticket unfamiliar in a corner of the exhibition image of the state, which opened the box I saw. All of the characters that are printed when the question to exhibitor in physical securities was please tell me politely. Although “This is very much!” I attempted to bid and, already in our laboratory and owns more than one M40 big shot, there is a limit in the bid of only fondness for that one ticket, sorry and it has ended in results. Our laboratory assistant that can not be give up and it is contacted again to exhibitor, “when it was such a reason, but I have sent the goods to the highest bidder, using freely because there is a picture of the ticket taken at the time of exhibition image has been sent along with the message of the to please. ” It was not a thing entirely positive contrast, the character also was a great material image that can be read in the clear. Then also we were able to get those amazing after a few years. Japan Sea side of it is Tamiya poster tattered state that had been stuck to the model shop in the old in certain provinces. Or it would place such as the 1964 year-end from the viewpoint of the lineup? Ultra S is a valuable material of class, such as sticking and dirt of paper violently, while steaming is carefully removed, framed and put on the mount, it was to have finished the restoration. Then, reel-to-reel tape recorder that hits the prize that has been resting image on the poster also obtain the same type of machine, the set is here also carefully polished “Tamiya Shunsaku Exhibition (July 2006)” I was allowed to be exhibited in. By the way, this poster and the impressions of reel-to-reel tape recorder Tamiya Shunsaku president became a look at the (at the time) “I came out is this thing also great. Hmmm, particularly to remember I wish not -” was ( ^ _ ^;). In addition to April 2008 is past time, “Tank Plastic Encyclopedia of movement of Tamiya” When I re-organized by the hand of article Roundup As we publish, we noticed that serious. It is that thing that thing that is written in this ticket and poster represents the contents of the same sale. If you think from now but is why wonder whether did not notice that this simple, even though the ticket is written, “Tiger Panther 1,000,000 units breakthrough anniversary sale”, “hit the tape recorder in the tank of Tamiya” on a poster so it was written with, would there was a prejudice from Hana it ‘s another thing. Ticket also is one of the causes also had been a store in a different place because it was the image management dimension rather than have the actual thing. But have been above all emphasized that the ticket is a stereo with one such prize “stereo one person”, why posters that the tape recorder of Dekadeka and 2, etc. prize has been greatly appeal both images and title You will also. Such in such a safely “Tank Plastic Encyclopedia of movement of the Tamiya” is I was able to introduce it have to do integrity crowded put up Japan model newspaper article announced lottery results, but just at the timing immediately after proofreading, the net auction I found a precious thing. It’s was the M48 Patton of junk state Tamiya 1/35, but also orange ticket familiar in a corner of the image in a state that opened the box you will see. You do not need to say the “There was here 100 years!” Was bid prepared with. Fortunately M40 Big shot of the popular degree different things and, it was junk, and there also be the ticket, including even its existence was not aware perhaps anyone what represent things, to bid at reasonable price that we were able. M48 is to Patton and I’m sorry, but it is the ticket was confirmed first and foremost reached the goods. Since already printing house was after the document has been sent, it was allowed to and be reflected in the fold of the reprint. Fortunately for sales also took a strong a reprint, and Yes to replace the ones that have been scanning the the original ticket “Tank Plastic Taizen movement of Tamiya” of version 2 or later (see p21). When further flow, we have finally also doing the day to get the 1 or the like prize. So After the ask towards the “everyone collectively want the exhibition to!” And Tamiya of a certain charge, and I got a reply thankfully called “Let’s create a place at the time of the upcoming Tamiya Open House”. As described above, if there is a long ~ Lee circumstances, it became possible beautifully full reproduction of “Tiger Panther 1,000,000 units breakthrough anniversary sale”. In fact those who carried the leg or will how come? Actually seemed to become even Tamiya house a little topic, it seems to have been, “What is this?” The big old old stereo. By the way, if how Tiger and Panther was 360 yen at that time to say that it has sold 1 million units sold, it will be the sales of at least 300 million 60 million yen in simple calculation. “Hmmm, perhaps Na ~? Or not it was all of the cumulative total of Tamiya tanks” I tried to ask around here also Tamiya Shunsaku president was that of the (^^ ♪. Now from 45 years ago talk it was ….
