Trumpeter is one of the biggest Chinese model kit manufacturers.
They have a very broad range of AFV model kits in 1/35 scale, aircrafts in 1/48 and 1/72 scale and ships in 1/350 and 1/700 scale. They also produce a wide variety of quality modelling accessories and tools at reasonable prices. Trumpeter kits are moderately difficult to build - parts fit is good and details are adequate for most modellers. It's worth mentioning that they offer probably the widest choice of Soviet armoured vehicles (both historical and modern) models and lesser known machines.
