Hi all

OK, which japanese vehicles would you like to see in plastic in the new year?

Mine are (in no particular order):

- Type 93 Staff (Passenger) Car (6-wheeled, 4-wheeled)
http://www3.plala.or.jp/takihome/car93.htm

- Type 91 Armored Railroad Car "So-Mo"
http://www3.plala.or.jp/takihome/91.htm

- Sumida Model P Armored Car
http://www3.plala.or.jp/takihome/Sumida.htm

- Type 4 Amphibious Vehicle "Ka-Tsu"
http://www3.plala.or.jp/takihome/ka-tsu.htm

- Chi-Ha with 12cm Naval Gun
http://www3.plala.or.jp/takihome/12cm.htm
(I know, MR Models make a conversion, but the turret is too short, I think, based on the Tamiya Shinhoto turret)

Taki, I hope it is ok to link to these items on your website?

Cheers,
Peter

For so long my wish list began and ended with with a Type 89 in plastic I just don't know what to say...

I would definately buy a Sumida Type 93 Armored Car in 1/35. Or even a Vickers Crossley M25. I wouldn't mind having the armored trailer for the Type 94 Tankette offered in plastic either.

I'd also like to see some aftermarket interiors for IJA armour.

Hi all,

I'd love to see the type 89 maybe in another version, as a regular Fine Molds release.

Otherwise, more modern stuff, such as the JGSDF Type 87 AW (Self propelled Anti aircraft Gun), JGSDF Type78 Snow Vehicle, JGSDF Material Transport Tractor, and the JGSDF Type 90 ARV. Also that JGSDF armoured bulldozer, can't remember the exact type.

Cheers,

Christophe

what I'd like more than anything else is a type 4 Chi-to in 1/35 scale. A close second (placed right before the Ka-Tsu) would be the Type 1 Ho-Ha halftrack.
