Type 97 Chi Ha - Tamiya 1/35


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

A bit of a late entry here.  It's an old kit but it looks pretty good to me.

I bought this recently for a few penny less than a tenner.

Hi All,

 

The hull and turret are together.

It all fits well considering the age of the kit.  Top and bottom of the hull aren't glued together yet, as it'll be easier to work on like that for now.

Hi Dave. Welcome to the GB and great to have you here. Nice idea for a project and it looks like you are off to a cracking start. I've looked at this kit with interest in the shops before, so I will be intersted in seeing what you do with it. :popcorn:

Kind regards,

Stix

Hi All,

 

The lower hull is painted.  Apparently the Japanese applied the camo. by brush so I've done the same.

I've drilled four holes and put in a piece of wire from a paper clip in each side to make the track look a bit saggy.

Hopefully when the pins are painted track colour and with mud on the tracks, they won't be too visible.

Hi All,

 

The two hull parts are together now.

I've given it a matt coat and airbrushed on some dust coloured paint in places.  A bit more weathering and it's done.
