Fairy Planning - Fairy Kikaku

A small resin manufacturer from Japan, that also made military vehicles in 1/72 scale
(and 1/144 and warships in 1/700 scale - not showed on the page)

Asking for help:

I think that the manufacturer "Fairy Planning" is almost unknown outside Japan. However, it appears to me that they have released a large range of more then 40 kits. You will find some of the kits listed below. To get more information on this manufacturer I am asking for assistance from other modellers. Any information and pictures of the kits of this manufacturer are welcome !!

More Information:

The Manufacturer "Fairy Planning" is a small group of Japanese modellers, without a shop, onlineshop, website and/or e-mail addresses. May be you can speak in this about a "Kitchentable Company". They made the kits in very "Limited" runs and selling the kits not in modellingshops but only inside Japan on modelingshows etc. However time by time you will found Fairy Planning kits on E-Bay. Some modelllers has informed me that they have contacts with Japanese modellers to become the Fairey Planning kits
