Universal Hobbies is one of the leading brands in farm and construction collectible replicas. Offering a large variety to choose from, the models range in scale from ¹/₁₆, ¹/₃₂, ¹/₄₃, and ¹/₅₀. To ensure the highest quality and finest detail, we utilize Tampo Printing, as opposed to sticker details. This gives our product permanent details that will not fade or peel off. The Tampo Printing takes up to 400 presses to complete, and the finished models look incredible, just like the “Real One.”

We pride ourselves on having retail-friendly, four-color packaging. All of our collectibles come in specific packages that display the product or original photos, creating a well-rounded buying experience that other collectible companies do not provide.
