This one goes back a while.  The tracks are from a Fujimi Ho-Ni as the Airfix ones fell apart several years ago!!

Ralph - That looks nice.  Is this made from a longstanding kit you had, or is it from the recently re-released kit.

Cheers Chris. It`s the old one (Series 1, 01319). Nice to see it`s getting a re-release. I`d put this off for some time - it`s my first try at a tank - but once started, I enjoyed putting it together...

My attempt at this delightful little tank, from an earlier Blister Pack!

It went together very quickly and very well with little effort, nice building experience.

Great models.
How come Japanese tanks are so lousy represented in model form? I can only recal about five kits spread over all scales I have seen in my about 40 years of making models. In my pile of started models I have a type 70 in winter camouflage from Tamiya 1/35 but that is actually the only one I have layed my hands on, the other ones have stayed clear from my stash without a trace.

Jesper.
