A new name for Tasca ?

Post  G Cooper on Sun Jul 28, 2013 6:41 am

I saw this the other day on the Tasca site. And I am not totally sure of what has happened, but living in the United States I think this is what would be refered to as a corporate merger, or takeover. Shocked . Ultimately I don't think it means much to us as modellers. But only that we will eventually learn to look for the latest best Sherman releases from Asuka, instead of Tasca.

Hi Gary

Whatever the reasons for the name change, I hope that Asuka continues their relaxed output of stuff that's excellent and not churn out stuff that's incorrect.

The inside news

Well I can confirm that the name change came about because the founder and director of Tasca resigned to pursue his own interests, he has subsequently started the company Raupen Modell and is producing superb track sets for modern Japanese armour subjects, their first release was sets (with and without rubber pads) for the Type 90. I have both sets and I can tell you that the quality is superb, he also released a photo reference CD with photos of the Type 74 and the new Type 10. currently he is working on releasing a new set of tracks for the recently released Tamiya 1/35th scale Type 10.
Tasca / Asuka will continue in their current path and their next release is (from what I have been told) something quite unusual and never before produced as an injection molded kit... I can't divulge what it will be (sworn to secrecy) but keep a weather eye on the horizon for something unusual Smile
