How do you know if any Tamiya product is made in Japan or China.

I always thought it was Japan too.

Look on the side of the box?

I've never seen any Tamiya stuff come out of China though. They do have some production outside of Japan (Phillipines is one).

But no one ever buy them at full pop do they? I mean the 416X was close to 90,000Yen. But I don't think I see them on sale for more than $480USD?
