[About the actual vehicle]
-The 97th Medium Tank is an indispensable vehicle for talking about the Japanese Army tank of World War II.
-From the Sino-Japanese War where the fire lid was dropped in 1945 to the subsequent battlefields in the Pacific Ocean, and in all regions including the Kuril Islands, the battle continued as a main battle tank.
-Development began as a successor to the Type 89 medium tank, completed in 1938, and formulated in that year.
-A unique turret with a car body shape that is designed to be low and compact, a turret equipped with a headband antenna in an asymmetrical shape, an air-cooled diesel engine for the engine, and a unique seesaw suspension for the undercarriage It was a tank with a mechanism.
-It was a state-of-the-art tank that would never be inferior to the tanks of the world at that time, considering that the main German tanks of the same period were the II and III tanks.
-Participation from the Nomonhan incident in July 1940 (Showa 14).
-After that, he gained a lot of attention in the Malay invasion.
-However, the 18.4 caliber 57mm gun, whose main purpose was to support infantry, was inevitably lacking in anti-tank combat.
-While the design of Type 3 and Type 4 medium tanks for anti-tank battles was underway, production of over 2000 vehicles was recorded by 1944.
[About the model]
-A 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit that reproduces the 97th Medium Tank developed by the Japanese Army during World War II.
-Above all, we have modeled a new chassis type with improved upper part of the car body.
-From the Dragon, the previous model was already highly evaluated, but this time, based on the well-established kit, new parts such as the lower part of the car body, the upper part of the car body, and the fender are produced.
-The exact difference is reproduced. A completely new design part is prepared for the upper part of the car body.
-Accurate modeling of the difference in shape, such as the rear of the car body and the left and right sides of the engine deck.
-The upper parts are not integrated, and each hatch is set as a separate part. Each detail, shape is reproduced firmly.
-You can't overlook the atmosphere that is very different from the 97th Medium Tank.
-In addition, the kit has a newly designed lower body part. New storage box and rear fender parts at the rear of the car.
-In addition, it is a nice point that the design that uses a lot of dragon-specific slide molds has been added and the ease of assembly is also taken into consideration.
-In addition, the track parts adopt a type that can be assembled using a dedicated jig. The natural slack is beautifully expressed and the feet are produced realistically.
-Modeled symmetric turret shape as well as rivet details.
-In addition, the 57mm gun is made up of multiple parts and is well reproduced to the base of the gun barrel.
-It is a kit that you want to compare the difference with the previous model.
