Ordnance 4 - Japanese Type 97 Tank

Recommended Posts

Here's another bit of ordnance - a WW II Japanese Type 97 Shinhoto Chi Ha Tank from Tamiya. 1/35 scale, all plastic, with flexible tracks. The kit dates back to the 80s. Fairly easy cleanup and assembly. Paashe VL airbrush and Tester's Model Master, et al, paints. Colored pencils for the paint chips, scratches, abrasions, etc. Reaper acrylics for the various oil, gas, dirt, and dust stains. Finished off with chalk pastels (old school). The base is a cutup, sanded, and stained oak plank from Home Depot. Name plate from a local trophy shop.

 

Now everyone can join in the fun in RC's Ordnance Category.

 

Qs and Cs welcomed.

Very nice Type 97 Shinhoto!  I have a Warlord Chi-Ha and a Type 4 Ho-Ro (assault gun on the same chassis, for those who might not know what it is).

 

Chi-Ha pets for everyone!

 

 

I'll see myself out. :blush:  Great work, though!

Don't forget to tip your waiter!

Thanks all!

 

Looking at starting Tamiya's new M3 Stuart tank in North Africa (faded OD paint+lots of light tan/gray dust). It'll be Ordnance 5 unless I sneak something else in here. Also working on a scratch-built naughty female elf flat. Copious amounts of dwarf ale are involved.

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I wanted to share a new campaign that I've just started:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1502793436/mav3rick-modular-3d-printable-tank-kit-in-28mm-sca

      Featuring a snap-fit modular design, MAV3RICK is a 3D printable kit that can be configured into a number of different vehicle variants:

       
      Take a look, I'd love to know what you think.
       
      Thanks for looking!

      Thought I'd post my recently completed pair of Commander II Anti-Grav tanks painted up in the ADON Regiment 45 "Bone Collectors" scheme!

      Hello everyone,
       
       
      I’ve been asking myself if this is the right place, but as this project has been the one that kept me busy for most of my recent time and is very dear to me, I would like to present it to you.
       
       
      The whole idea to this was born during the time when I nearly stopped painting miniatures and doing wargaming.
      I had some pretty bad experiences with some guys and communities in Germany and my overall motivation to do some painting and building stuff was down to almost none. I even stopped writing which normally is my preferred method of relaxing. In short: A midlife miniature crisis.
       
       
      Read some more about the background over here:
       
       
      Gallia to Arms - original blog entry
       
       
      During that time a friend of mine bought the miniature kit of the Edelweiß tank that became available just then and later also purchased the kit of the Shamrock tank. That was the moment I decided to also make a small miniature project within the world of Valkyria Chronicles which I had known and liked since I first came to know the original game (or rather … its soundtrack).
       
       
      I had a lot of 20mm figures left and some 1/72 scale tanks, which I figured to be perfect for my plan to recreate the equipment and figures of the game in small scale. They don’t need much space, are easily convertible and they don’t cost as much as 28mm figures and vehicles.
       
       
      As some of my friends continued to do wargaming on WWII and I had so much stuff left, I soon decided to create a small force of Gallian troops for WWII skirmish games. Unfortunately it turned out that the game rules they were using rendered the Valkyria Chronicles scenario almost useless (due to balancing issues).
      So I continued creating models just for fun, using the whole anime scenario to set up the amusing story of a guy doing weird stuff.
       
       
      It somehow got out of hand …
       
       
      My little builds caught the attention of some guys organizing an annual local tabletop event called “Do or Dice” – and they asked me if I’d like to present some of my miniatures.
      I thought – wow – what an honor – but … it’s a tabletop event, not a miniature showcase event. So … hm. What to do?
       
      Right! Create an own scenario.
       
       
      Luckily I had acquired some left-over scale train terrain from my late uncle – and there were two grass mats measuring 100cm x 70cm.
       
       
      Perfect for a small skirmish game. Reason enough for me to tackle that challenge.
       
       
      Fortunately I’ve like 8 month or so left.
       
       
      Well then – Let’s Make … Gallia to Arms!
       

       
       
       
      Creating a scenario set in the Valkyria Chronicles universe requires certain elements.
      As I plan to use this thread as the main thread and create threads for the single elements of the game – Gallian Forces, Imperial Forces and Terrain – consider this as some kind of register for the different threads. I will frequently update the different sections, so stay tuned.

      What do we need?
       
      Gallian Forces

       
      Gallian Army WIP Thread
       
       
      Imperial Forces

       
       
      Terrain

       
      Terrain WIP
       
      Game rules and scenario setup

       
      Game supplies

       
       
      Well then
       
      Let’s make this:
       

       
      Into this:



       
      Or at least something that looks like it …

      Just finished up a 1/56th scale M18 Hellcat from Warlord Games.  First time to do a "realistic" vehicle and had a blast!
