Type-97 "Shi-Ki", 1/35.

Hi All,
I like to show you, the new kit on the Workbench , a Japanese funny tank, I'm start to build the Type 97 "Shi-Ki", a Command Tank, used by the IJA, in the WWII.
To Start a plan...:


... and a real picture:


It's an unusual vehicle, It have a 37mm. gun in the redesigned glacis, the turret gun was removed to install a bigger radio, two headlights, etc.
I used the Azimut conversion kit, with "oldie but goldie" Tamiya kit, my friend Carlos Bravo help me with the resin kit, now the pieces are ready to glue all in the hull:


I keep posting,
Best Regards All.

Is not a prototype

Hi,

The "Shi-Ki" was not a protype, it was full operative, until I know, was used in Malaya Campaign and the Chiba Tank School in Japan:

Still more interesting...

I had in view of a model prototype which you build - a model prototype, instead of the experimental tank.

Nice to see something unusual like this. Good job. I am currently working on a Type 94 "TK" by FineMolds. A really nice kit. Good job.
