I made it in parallel with the Tiger Tank which I posted separately. I built it from May 2008 to August 2008.
The shape of slacking was difficult since the caterpillar was made of a rubber belt. I made them slacken a little by using the instant adhesive for the point. The left side is more natural slacking than the right.
There is no atmosphere of the Imperial Army tank. Paint in dark green, red-brown, and yellow ocher, but I should have adjusted more to match the Japanese tank color. Maybe one more color I should have used.
Painting to use masking liquid was a failure. First of all, the adhesive power of this liquid is strong and it took much time to peel all the remaining liquid clearly. I could not remove all masking liquid, especially near the complex area.
And in the real tank painting process, the yellow line paint was last I suppose. But this process, the yellow line was painted first and the border of the different colors was unnatural looking.
Light armored car “Type 94 TK” was developed from the base concept of British Carden-Loyd tankettes. About 840 cars were produced from 1933 to 1940. At first, this might have been a reliable war machine.
Too close and the photo quality is not good. I wrote the collar badge of this commander. It is the first time to write the insignia of the Japanese army. I imagined about the second lieutenant or the lieutenant. The mold of this face looks Japanese.
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.
