Dragon is going to release another 1/72 Type 95 plastic kit, this time depicting one with Late-Production features. The Type 95 tank was used in combat against China and Russia, as well as fully participating in Japanese operations in WWII. Weighing just 7.4 tonnes, it was designed primarily as an infantry support weapon. Indeed, it was the most common light tank used by the IJA in the Pacific. It had a crew of three, and the main armament was a Type 94 37mm gun. Its maximum speed was 45km/h.

The kit has received new part so it can accurately depict a Late-Production “Ha-Go”, for example the rounded front fenders (the Early-Production type’s fenders were flat and squarely cut off). Meanwhile, the turret and one-piece upper hull and lower hull remain unchanged. They’re still brimming with detail thanks to the use of slide molds. The road wheels, idlers, sprockets and return rollers have accurate details, whilst the DS track links are accurately replicated. The “Ha-Go” was used in diverse battlefield locations, so modelers can really go to town by producing any scenario such as jungle-clad terrain or a Pacific tropical island!
