Platz Co., Ltd. is a Japanese model kit manufacturer founded in April 2000. Aside from being a developer and manufacturer of model kits, the company also serves as a distributor of Japanese made and imported model kit products, as well as related products such as books and DVD’s dealing with the subject. The company is located in the city of Shizuoka. Concerning us, all the Platz 1/72 releases are re-releases of other makers, in some cases some old as ESCI Models due Italeri partnership, and this is the main reason we are no longer updating this category. If you have interest in these models take a look at Platz website for further reference.
