Japanese Chi-Ha and Te-Ke Tanks

I finished up my very first commission project in time to make delivery to my friend Hal when I flew back to San Francisco last weekend.  Hal asked me to paint up these four tiny tanks in exchange for some Italian guns I took in trade.  See here for an in-progress report: http://flamesofnerd.blogspot.com/2015/11/6mmrpc-week-twenty-two-japanese-tanks.html

Once I got the camouflage down, they finished up pretty quickly, since they didn't have commanders or stowage.  I free-handed some regimental markings on the hull and turrets as well.

Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tanks.
Type 97 Te-Ke tankettes.
