Model Factory Hiro releases at least one new full-detail kit in several variants every month. In return, a number of kits from ongoing production are no longer available. Please note that AUTOGRAPH cannot keep all HIRO kits in stock in all variants at all time. In the future we will keep all Ferrari and Porsche as well as some other attractive models immediately available. All other kits become order items. You can see from the order traffic light (red, green, blue), if the article is in stock.

We order weekly in Japan - so if you want to buy a kit that is currently out of stock we can (usually) help you in around 10 days! Even with the kits in 1/20, 1/24 and 1/43 that we don't currently stock, or also with the military kits!
Most of our competitors only order monthly, so you wait more than 4 weeks for your order there!
