Tamiya 1:48 JGSDF Panzer Type 10
Tamiya's popular 1/48 Military Miniature Series features a broad line-up of models depicting historically important vehicles. Now, it welcomes its first model of a tank in current service - the Japanese Type 10 main battle tank. This model is not simply a smaller scale version of the 1/35 scale Type 10 (Item 35329) - it recreates a tank from the newer fourth production lot (C4), which was delivered from 2014 to Spring 2015 and featured a number of evolutions of the original design. The Type 10 was originally commissioned in 2010 and is a new cornerstone for the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) with Japanese-made 120mm main gun, modular armor, excellent maneuverability, and compatibility with the modern C4I network system. About the Model • This is a 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 199mm, width: 72mm. • The sleek, modern design of the Type 10 is accurately captured in concise 1/48 scale, from the distinctive modular turret/hull armor to the 120mm gun. • C4 production lot-specific features such as the altered fender and turret rack designs, plus the updated antenna are faithfully recreated. • Weights are provided in the kit to give the model a realistically heavy feel. • Link-and-length type assembly tracks feature 1-piece straight sections. • 2 marking options are included, to recreate a Type 10 from the JGSDF 1st or 8th Tank Battalions. • Comes with 1 commander torso figure to add further life to the model.
