It 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I 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.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
