I first discovered Mania kits when their first two models, Ki-15 Babs, were reviewed in a 1973 Squadron/Signal catalog. Squadron gushed praise upon the company borne of a group of modelers maniacally dedicated to state of the art plastic models of Imperial Japanese aircraft overlooked by the big model companies. When Hasegawa bought the tooling the model giant found little to improve upon. Indeed, these kits have stood the test of time.
