Here's the online version of the 2013-2014 Trumpeter brochure, which has plenty to read for the avid model maker.
Trumpeter’s product line consists of an interesting mix of ships, aircraft, cars and military ground vehicles. The company is based in Zhongshan, China, where design and development takes place. On-site facilities include mould-making, using a production technique that runs from computer aided design in the early stages, all the way to print and packaging of the kit boxes.
Trumpeter does outsource a few items, such as photo-etch components, but otherwise all else is normally an in-house job. Trumpeter also produces kits for other brands under contract, including names such as Hobby Boss, Mini Hobby, Fujumi and Pit Road.
