Spotlight Review

"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"
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.

"Beautiful Kit."

Once again Tamiya has topped a record with an old kit. I always wanted to build this japanese Army tank since it's release but never had a good diorama base but since years ago I have an island diorama with two sets of Japanese troops fighting Marines. As far as quality,I couldn't find anything that was out of place or lacking details, no parts had flash. As expected, Tamiya maintained good quality parts throughout the years. I'm looking forward to building this particular kit.

"Great Looking Tank with fun Camoflauge"
Historically, the Type 97 tank didn't stand up well against U.S. and Russian tanks, but as a model, it has some sparkling attributes that make it a winner. The design of the tank is asymmetrical, with good proportions and a pleasing aesthetic. The camouflage is such a neat pattern. A sweeping set of yellow lines breaks up clouds of brown, green, and khaki. This is absolutely a blast to apply. The tank has a Tamiya 1975 stamp, and it shows in the lack of overall refinement. Interior detail is absent, but you are given two figures (one full and one torso) and the option to open or close the hatches. I learned quite a bit about Japanese tanks building and detailing this model. More importantly, it was a relaxing and very enjoyable build. Goes to show you that 1975 was an okay year. . Try it, it is well worth the modest price-point.


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