Hi everyone,

A bit of interesting news for IJA armour builders such as myself, but surely interesting for most of you;
On Korean website http://mmzone.co.kr I found a list of upcoming Masterclub track sets which include several IJA tanks.

No release dates are given, so it could take a while before they are actually released.

MTL-35141 - Ka-Mi Early
MTL-35142 - Ka-Mi Late
MTL-35143 - Chi-Ha Type97
MTL-35144 - Ha-Go Type95
MTL-35145 - Type 89
MTL-35146 - Type 94


Best regards

Theo

Hopefully they find a way to cast the Type 97 tracks with hollow guide teeth - this is the failing of every other track set out there that I know of.

Good news indeed! It will be interesting to see which version of the Type 89 they will do. I know of at least three versions of the later short pitch type. Modellkasten have done two, their own SK-71 and the ones they did for the Gum-Ka kit. The Spade Ace SAT-35089 I have yet to see.
BTW, Modellkasten SK-31 for the Type 97 series do have (separate) hollow horns. Tedious to assemble but worth it, since the end result is just perfect!

Regards,
Tomas Enerdal

This is good news.  Have never used their tracks but have many IJA tanks waiting in the wings for new tracks.   Cheers,  Brock
