CleaRush Prints Announces Expansion of “CleaRush Jet”
Line of Plastic Model Kits.March 13, 2014

TORRANCE, CA. - CleaRush Prints, the Torrance, CA based distributor of Japanese-style Clear Files and other printed novelty goods has announced the expansion of its CleaRush Jet plastic model kit line, with regular line extensions planned throughout 2014. The CleaRush Jet line of plastic model kits mixes traditional model kits and gliders, producing a realistic model airplane that actually flies. Unlike traditional gliders, CleaRush Print’s model kits are manufactured from durable plastic sheets and custom offset printed, giving them fully-customizable, realistic graphics. Unlike many models, CleaRush Jet airplane kits really fly, differentiating them from other airplane-themed novelty goods.

The original model kit, dubbed the CleaRush Jet, was introduced in Japan in 2012 and subsequently won the Best New Product prize at the 48th Osaka gift show in 2012. “It was the first award I received, and also one of the first products I designed” said Masaya Iwata, lead designer and Director of Product Planning for CleaRush Prints. “I would love to gain some customers in the US, and maybe eventually win a US design award for the CleaRush Jet series.”

The airplane model kits have proven a hit in Japan and have been widely distributed, including a custom version passed out on board All Nippon Airways (ANA) flights in 2013. The airplane model kits have been renewed by ANA for a second year.
CleaRush Prints will be exhibiting at the ASDLV gift show in Las Vegas from March 16-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, as well as at the SAGE show in Fort Worth Texas, April 23-25.
