JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 BOX PACKAGE The other day, I just made an Imperial Japanese Army tank crew kit first, so I will make a kit of an Imperial Japanese Army tank from my stock. The one I chose this time is Type 1 middle tank Chi-He.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 MAKINGIt seems that the Finemolds kits of the Imperial Japanese Army tank have been changed to the parts of the partially connected track, but I bought my kit quite a while ago, so if you like the connected caterpillar, I think it is convenient to use the separately sold track kit of the Vision Model.

I went to a sweets shop or a barbershop yesterday, but there were no customers probably because they were afraid of virus infection. This is bad for the economy. But there were a lot of people in the pet shop. Maybe it’s because everyone stays at home and feels lonely, so they come to see pets.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 PAINTING I don’t know how to paint it, but I used black surfacer as a primer.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 PAINTING This time, I will try to use a later camouflage color set of the Japanese Army tank released by Creos. I will try to paint Mr. Color with a brush while using a retarder. It was fun to finish a tank with Vallejo paint a while ago. Lacquer paint is difficult to paint with a brush, so if I fail, I may reapply with an airbrush or try again with a similar color to that of Vallejo.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 PAINTING Hahaha. The base of the black surfacer may be starting to melt. When I put the similar color of Vallejo on the palette, it is slightly different from the original color of Creos, so I would like to switch to the airbrush painting. It’s still cold, so I didn’t want to open the window and paint it, but now that I think about it, it’s bad for my health if I don’t open the window with a lacquer brush painting.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 PAINTINGI changed my mind and painted it black and white base color.

The prediction that it would be a cursed Olympics came true. There was a video that Blue Impulse’s Olympic cloud was swept away by the strong wind, which was not reported on TV at all. It seems that the torch brought from Olympus, Greece, including the seed flame, has gone out. Let’s stop the money celebration, what is important is the fire of life. I wonder if the misrule of the Abe cabinet for seven years is being punished by heaven. Seven years ago I supported the Liberal Democratic Party, but now it’s totally different. But there are a lot of countries that are worse than Japan, so I wonder if it’s not such a punishment. These days, I feel that the government is strongly determined not to take responsibility, only proposals and advises and requests to our nations. I really hope this disaster ends soon.

It’s not related to the Olympics anymore, so they started to announce the infected people in Tokyo. Well, the whole world is failing, so it’s not just Japan that is stupid government. The Tokyo Gov. Koike is trying to stand out, so I only have a premonition that she will definitely issue a curfew. Still, we don’t know why mortality is so high in Italy, but at least we’ve found that tomatoes and olive oil have nothing to do with the new virus.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK For the marking of this tank Type-1 Chi-He, I chose the 5th Tank Regiment Headquarters, Colonel Sugimoto. It was in August 1945, Saitama Prefecture Japan.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK According to the instruction manual, the 5th Tank Regiment was organized in Kurume in Kitakyushu in 1937, and after that, their deployment locations changed to Manchuria, Tochigi, and Saitama Prefectures, and since its formation, it has never had any actual combat experience, and the war ended.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK The unit mark is a square white background and red indicates each company, and this mark means the headquarters of the regiment.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK The Type-1 tank developed as a successor to the Chi-Ha was a 47-millimeter gun compared to the Chiha’s 57-millimeter short gun, but it had a long gun barrel and was powerful.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK A development order was issued for the Chi-He tank in 1940, but the prototype was completed in June 1943. It is said that the development budget for tanks was reduced considerably at that time because national power was allocated to the development and production of aircraft and ships. As I thought, the situation in my country is quite different from Germany as a tank kingdom.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK After that, 170 tanks were mass-produced in 1943 and 1944. Unfortunately, US Army at this time were mainly composed of M4 Sherman, and 47 mm anti-tank guns were not sufficient. Moreover, the tanks that were mass-produced in Japan were not ready to be sent to the southern front because, at that time, the United States had control of the sea and the air.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK Therefore, all of these tanks were deployed in the inland, and the war ended without exchanging fire with the U.S. Army.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK The Imperial Japanese Army’s tricolor camouflage is unique. It will blend in well with nature in Japan.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK Chi-He didn’t seem to have survived the fierce battle, so I made the wethering relatively light.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK I paired it with a tank commander. Maybe this angle fits the arms of the tank crew.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK The other is a tank soldier with a military sword. I didn’t need this figure to match with a tank, so I let it stand beside the Chi-He.

JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORK JAPANESE TANK TYPE 1 CHI-HE FINEMOLDS 1/35 FINISHED WORKI think it would have been good to blow camouflage color normally with an airbrush without worrying about the color border. In the latter half of the war, the Imperial Japanese tanks lack yellow lines, which makes them somewhat visually unsatisfactory. But when it’s done, it’s pretty cool.

  1. Hey man, great models. I like them a lot. And the colour combination is different to what we are used to see. Looks so nice!
    I wonder why all crew members wear white gloves. The one with folded legs and white shirt is clearly not in any miitary parade, but it seems strange that they used them in combat…

    I will save this page, and also your BT-5 build. I have that kit and hope your experience will be useful for me.

    Keep on your good modelling!

    And maybe it is just a coincidence, but if I talk about the current situation from my local perspective here in Spain, it invariably produces an error and the post is not sent! ????

    1. These white gloves are 100% cotton gloves for work and have been used in Japan for a long time. These gloves are probably because 4 people are wearing work clothes. Thank you!!

  2. Dude, it is true! They are tracking and censoring posts, even in modelling pages! What the fuck???? If I paste my message without any mention to the current situation by its name, then I can post!

    1. Do you mean that public organizations control information on the recent crisis situation of viruses? I hope it will be settled soon.
