I know nothing about Japanese armour but I was given this model. It's a superb kit, complete with stretchy vinyl tracks and a small PE fret. In reality the ke-nu was a hybrid of two other tanks, and the Dragon kit follows the same path, providing virtually two complete different tank kits from which parts are used to create this one. It's very lightly weathered, I didn't have the confidence to try heavy weathering on such a small model.

You might not know much about tanks but painting the rubber tyres on 1/72 is an art and you have mastered it.

Wow! I thought it was 1/35 scale at first. Japanese armor was always a cool subject. The prewar design, obsolete tanks just have that interesting look about them. The camo is perfect!

I pulled my 1/35 Tamyia Chi-ha tank down off the shelf. After I dust it off, I will post a couple pics of it!
