It is a Type 60 armored vehicle of the Ground Self-Defense Force. I think I’ll try camouflage paint this time.

Come to think of it, if Type 60 armored vehicles were formalized at the same time as Type 61 tanks, they must have been thinking about the mobility of regular troops early on. It was related to the road situation in Japan that we settled on light and compact vehicles.

Some of the rings on the wheel got a little dirty because I mistakenly stuck them on the front and back and peeled them off. It’s not such a large vehicle, so I think there are only 5 medium-sized wheels.

There is various equipment installed on the top of the vehicle. The inside of the vehicle was painted matt white. There is no structure inside, so I will close the hatch at the back of the AFV. The upper hatches are likely to be closed, so I thought there was no need to paint inside.

I painted the inside of the headlight with silver and the clear parts with masking sol. It is difficult to fix this headlight on the vehicle, so I think the parts will come off when I peel off the sol.

It is not an etched part, but the light guard part is thin, so I wonder if there is no problem. The gun muzzle was opened with a design knife.

The order of attachment of track parts is written on the assembly manual, and if you do it in that way, there is no problem. Finally, if there is a little space, you can adjust the whole track by shifting it, so it is better not to eat, go out, play games, or play with cats in the middle of the rolling.

Assembly of the partially connected caterpillar. Some parts of the tracks have become unnatural steps, but the track will not stand out if painted black. It’s a compact vehicle, and it doesn’t take much trouble to wrap the track.

The inside is empty, so it can’t be helped to leave it open. I don’t know what to do.

Oh, I feel that the vehicle looks cool somehow after attaching the antenna and wire rope.

After all, a pair of partially connected plastic tracks are good. The mold of the track is also very good.

I don’t know, but I blurred the boundary of the paint color. I think it looks better.

This type 60 armored car has 2 colors camouflage, dark green 3414 and brown 3606. In addition to the previous Type 61 tank, there were 3 different colors of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force tank color set with Creos paint. I found out later that I bought a JGSDF special set a long time ago and I still have it. I didn’t have to buy them… It is common for modelers to buy colors they already have.

The Japan Ground Self-Defense Force’s Type 60 armored car, which was being assembled, was somehow completed during the holidays.

In modern warfare, even infantry cannot fight properly without mobility. I think this Type 60 armored vehicle is in the same era as the U.S. Army’s M-113 armored personnel carrier. The purpose is almost the same. As it is a small vehicle, it can carry up to 6 infantries.

Type 60 armored cars were officially deployed in 1960 and a total of 428 vehicles were produced until 1972. It seems that Mitsubishi and Komatsu were producing it. A decal with the Mitsubishi mark was attached to the rear hatch of this vehicle. Maybe I should have painted different colors such as lights. But when I see the actual vehicle, the color is the same as the color of the body. The instruction manual doesn’t mention it. It’s a mystery. The diesel jelly can have a fine decal and is realistic.

At first, there was a hatch that could be opened and closed.  But the plastic shaft was broken during painting, and it was stuck in the closed state. Well, the inside is empty, so I think it’s okay to be fully closed. I didn’t even make a figure this time.

The towing wire was thinner and longer than I expected, and it was hard to paint it black after sticking it to the vehicle body.

The marking was the 4th Tank Battalion, Camp Kusu, Ohita pref. 1991.

At first, I didn’t want to blur the color line, but as I washed as weathering it, I didn’t really recognize the lines. Is the dirt too much… But during the training, it will be dirtier, so I think this is OK.

It’s a relatively simple vehicle because it doesn’t have anti-tank weapons. But I am very happy that one more vehicle of our Japan Self Defense Force has joined my collection.
