Some interesting news out of Tasca, it looks like there is a name change taking place.
According to the Tasca website, there has been an announced name change. Tasca will change itís name to Asuka Model. While there is a not a lot of information on the English site, the Japanese site states that they will continue with current modelling endeavors. I would presume the full name change and repackaging of current kits will take some time, but if you see the Asuka Model name on vendor website, it is the same as Tasca.

Yes and no. If you just put in Asuka model, you will get a ton of pictures of Asuka, the character from Neon Genesis Evangalion, and about a million Bandai kits...and some weird Japanese model agency!

I must have found what Harald did. Harald, you are right. Very interesting ! I'm thinking they should maybe go back to Tasca.
