1/16 Takom Imperial Japanese Army Type 94 Tankette

I am calling this one done now for now!

I'm impressed with what Takom have done, and the kit falls together! I reckon this could easily be a weekend build project if you were looking for one! Clean up wasn't too bad thanks to where Takom placed the sprue attachment points, and a sharp sprue cutter makes it hassle-free. Mission Model Dunkelgelb, Rubber, Gun Metal and Transparent dust paints were used, which is now my favourite paint brand as its so easy to use without all the smells from solvent-based paints. Ak Interactive pigments were used on the tracks, exhaust and sand build up/weathering. I dumped the idea of it blowing a track as it didn't look right, I ended up connecting the track back up. Only thing I want to revisit is the Imperial Star on the front, as it should be a little be darker.

I really like it. Not an armor guy, but I think I might be able to stomach his one. :)
