"nice kit"
another nice Tamiya kit. not really very challenging, but fun nonetheless

"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.

"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


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