I have given a possible method to acquire said models, that might be your best, and legal, manner in which to get the models
Ah fair enough! Sorry about that!

So I tried this and this was the reply I got. Unfortunately they can't do it. Do you have any other ideas as to how someone who does not have a Japanese address could get this?

There is a Japanese based person named Atom at this website:
Glueイ chronicle
who will purchase items in Japan and ship them to you. I think you pay the price of the item, the shipping, and a fee to Atom. There is a note on the website that reads "I can support your shopping in Japan." and an email form you can contact Atom with and find out the details. JohnM is a member of Paper Modelers and has used that service before with good results.

Thank you very much for the reminder and update about the FACET Japanese castle paper models. A friend gave me one of their historical battle dioramas as present , several years ago. The design, paper quality, and printing are excellent.
There are several vendors out there who stock FACET models and are willing to ship them outside of Japan.


The EPSON samurai armors are well done and fun builds and look great when completed. Several of them were made available for download to people who do not have EPSON printers, and better yet the same designer has more armors and weapons available here:
コヌセ蠏チクホサヒエロ/・レ。シ・ム。シ・ッ・鬣ユ・ネ
Kabuto, helmets, are here

コヌセ蠏チクホサヒエロ/コヌセ蠏チク、ロ、ォノセ*ウ・レ。シ・ム。シ・ッ・鬣ユ・ネ、ホフオホチ・タ・ヲ・・。シ ・ノ
There are helmets and swords on the Canon Creative Park web site.
Kirin has a Boys Day display with a helmet.

Papermau has posted the link to set of Waring States armors by a Japanese meat processor. Browse Mauther's site and you will find it.

Here are helmets worn by historical Daimiyo from the Warring States Period:

•随ォŠ•ƒyーƒpーƒNƒ‰ƒtƒg–ウ—ソƒ_ƒEƒ“ƒ香[ƒh | •ト‘・戦‘ •Žm[‚‚フ‚フ‚モ]‚フŽž‘


All of these models are of armors and helmets worn during the Waring States Period, the 1600's, and are display pieces, the armors come with their travel box and display stand. These armors were designed for foot combat, and were much more wearable than the Kamakura armor.

The Kamakura era models are from a much earlier period, the 1300's; they are O Yoroi, great armors, that were intended for use by high ranking Samurai who spend a lot of time on horse back. The ornamentation is over the top since they were meant to intimidate and to display the owners power and wealth.

Rather than being display pieces with stand and box, these models come with a posable figure. which is a neat bit of paper model engineering.

The designer of the Kamakura models, pre Covid, had a walk in store where assembled paper models and several kits could be purchased. Hopefully, as time progresses he will expand his offerings and an Amazon vendor willing to accept non Japanese money and ship overseas will offer them.


If you search my previous postings, you can find either two or three Edo period paper models of O Yoroi which were probably intended as Boy's Day gifts. They are not as colorful or detailed as the modern offerings.

There are a couple of other commercial Kamakura era armor paper models out there, but the pair from the Kamakura site, IMHO, are the best renditions so far.


(Many years ago, I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the armor rooms at the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art and see their collection of European and Japanese armors. One thing that immediately stood out is that the Japanese warriors were not very big, the armors were worn by men who were maybe a tad over five feet tall.

On the other hand, a significant number of the armors worn by their European contemporaries were for men who would be considered huge even by modern standards, almost six feet tall and really bulky. A well fed knight would have been much bigger than his ill nourished peasant contemporaries. By today's standards a knight would be like a power-lifting triathlete.

There are YouTube presentations that show a man in well fitted Medieval armor could run, roll over, climb obstacles. A full armored knight wielding a glave or hand and a half sword would have been a terror inspiring sight to a peasant levy armed with pointy sticks and clubs.)

no policy per se.

but if one continues to promote, or engage in it, and doesn't care that they are breaking the law, and hurting the hobby, then yes, we ban them.

but if someone who might be a beginner, and unknowingly downloads a pirate kit, and builds it, we try to educate them, and hope they see the light so to speak.

but as a general rule, we try to educate first, ban as a last resort
