Glad to publish my recent work, quite rare Japan model of Type 89 tank, kit from FineMolds. Built mostly OOTB + Modelkasten tracks and resin stowage + RB Model chain, rope and some scratched PE exhaust cover.
Model kit available only as an addition for 3 issues Japanese magazines, not as a kit-in-the-box and costs quite expensive for an injection kit. But quality is perfect!
I painted my model as a Shanghai Naval Landing Forces Tank company, in IJA Green with naval markings - banner and anchor. Weathered using filters, washes, pigments and streaking effects. Hope you like it!

Figure in the turret still in work, so I will add it later

Great work, Pavel! I have this kit as well, I need to get the Modelkasten tracks. You've done a great job on it; but perhaps the stowage is a bit too shiny? Just an opinion.

Cheers, Tracy

Very nice to see these unusual tanks done. Great job with the painting, weathering and stowage.

Thank you, Tracy! Glad you like it and wish you to make your own type89, the kit is very pleasant in process, and very interesting prototype,
Stowage - is my old trouble - work on it, but still don't like result myself

Regards, Pavel
