"Fantastic Representation of History. Great Model !"
JRB (Burleson, Texas)
I really enjoyed this kit. Being that it was from Tamiya, I knew it would be an easy build. It was. Everything fit as designed and it was a joy to fit rubber tracks that were effortless. Everything went together as it should and there were absolutely no trouble spots. The decals were minimal (I would have liked a few other options like the Rising Sun), but they were sufficient. The paint job was a blast. If you research this tank you will see the paint scheme actually disguised the tank in the jungle. I would highly recommend this tank to any degree of modeler, especially those into armor. Once again, thanks Tamiya for a Fantastic Representation of History. Next Tank please. See my photos

"Great kit"
jeremy.s.michels1
This is a great little kit. The details are nice and crisp, there is very little clean up on the parts, and they go together really well. The instructions are easy to follow. I would recommend this to the beginner to the experienced modeler.

 
"Typical Tamiya goodness - An interesting tank kit"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
Tamiya's Type 97 tank kit was another excellent kit from Tamiya. It includes all the nice features that you come to expect from Tamiya, such as great detail and excellent fit, ease of construction, tools and of course figures (A full commander and half driver). This kit also includes the older style vinyl tank treads. You have to melt four pins to connect each track, but it was fairly easy. I'd rather have the type you can glue with regular plastic cement, or even the link and length type, but these weren't too bad as far as the old style goes. You can choose from six or seven different markings and paint schemes. Decals are few, but they went down just fine. You can choose to have the commander and driver hatches open or closed, and there is a single piece for the commander's hatch if you choose to leave it closed. Overall, an interesting subject and a very fun kit to build.

 
"Not the best Tamiya has done but close"
papagabriel (Naples, FL)
One of the reviews I came across praised the fit of this model. I got the one that was close but no cigar. Had quite a bit of flash to fix and had a problem getting the top of tank onto the lower body. Appeared to be slightly warped on one side of the top front, had to struggle to get it in and didn't fit flush. Other than that (and what model doesn't have problems like that) it was an easy build. Would still recommend this for any age modeler.

Comments

  • Keep small pieces and sharp edges away from children ages 3 and under.
  • Care should be taken when using tools and modeling knives.
