Dragon has already produced a stunning 1/72 scale kit of the Japanese Type 2 “Ka-Mi” amphibious tank. The “Ka Mi” was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). It was designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific islands not possessing regular port facilities. Production of the Type 2 commenced in 1942 and a total of 184 amphibious tanks were made. When used in water, large pontoons were attached to the glacis plate and rear deck to give it a top speed of 10km/h in water. These pontoons could be shed as soon as the vehicle reached land.

Based on the Type 2 "Ka-Mi" released, brand new parts consists of the special set of floating pontoons (early production), conning tower and hydroscope on turret. Slide molds are widely employed, with upper hull and lower hull components both made as single pieces, for example. The kit is closely based on measurements taken from a surviving Type 2 tank on Palau to ensure this kit is accurately dimensioned. The “Ka-Mi” also includes DS tracks for easy assembly of the complicated track links. The previous Type 2 kit was a huge success, and this version with the amphibious kit offers so much more by allowing modelers to depict it in a scenario where the tank is seen wading ashore. All in all, this is a swimmingly good kit!
