6MMRPC Week Twenty-Two: Japanese Tanks

My scatter-shot ways continue this week, as I was gently reminded that I forgot to paint up some tanks for my gaming compadre Hal.  In return for a battery of Italian 4.7cm guns I agreed to paint four Japanese tanks for him.  He gave me these ages ago but with the madness of life, they slipped my mind.  These are a pair of Type 97 Chi-Ha tanks and a pair of Type 97 Te-Ke tankettes, both from unknown manufacturers.  So far, I've only been able to put down an initial layer of dark yellow paint, but I hope to get these done as soon as possible.  These were beasts to clean up, mold lines all over flat surfaces and between rivets.

Maybe Command Decision?  They're all-metal and only the turrets were separate.

  1. Command Decision would get my vote too. Nice to have the weight of an all metal tank, but the few CD tanks I've worked on have been a nightmare to clean up. So much so I sold them in the end.
