DML was established in 1987 to manufacture plastic Model Kits according to its own designs, and then export them to all parts of the globe via agents in different countries. The high quality products that DML have produced have won numerous awards from magazines and modeling societies throughout the world. The products are marketed under the label "Dragon". Since its establishment, DML has constantly been investing capital in new equipment and tools. Since its founding it has now released more than 1,000 items. Recent years have seen DML's products marketed under the label "Revell/Monogram" in the USA, "Revell" and "Italeri" in Europe, and "Hasegawa" and "GSI" in Japan, all ODM products.
2003 also saw DML introducing yet another line of die-cast models - Dragon Armor. Compatible in scale with DML's Warbirds series of fighter aircraft, Dragon Armor adds just the right amount of action to 1/72 scale battlefields! Pre-assembled, pre-painted, and epitomizing DML's tradition of fine detail, superb quality, and accuracy, Dragon Armor immediately became a big hit with modelers and collectors alike, and has set an example for others to follow.
