Good Looking build and paint so far. As I have 2 or 3 of these in the stash I'll be watching the outcome of this one. Regards, Brock

Hey Omar, like what you're doing here. Sorry I couldn't get on here before but, in regards to your Type 89 Otsu, I have the same Girls Und Panzer boxing and, as far as I've been able to determine, the P.E. muffler cover is only correct for G.U.P. genuine W.W. II tanks had a different type, though often they had none, so you could remove if you're looking for more accuracy. This past week I've been working on my 2 Kuroganes (1 Pitroad, 1 Fine Molds) and I have to say the Fine Molds is leagues ahead of Pitroad's; it looks like a toy in comparison.

Everything is looking so great so far.Your research into the Type 92 is great and will be great for all of us who decide to build this kit.Your Type 89 is an excellent build.That early style of armor has always the greatest fascination.

If you want to make this model, be careful with the version that brings the box, the front door of the hull is the initial version (PE), or at least that seems depending on the photos I could get.
In the latest versions, the type of door is just like the one that comes with the plastic model, not the PE one. I hope that the people of Pit Road, when assembling the model, have done so with some reference, since I realized later, I had already drilled the front to put the door of PE when I realized this that I mention. ..

Hi All and thanks by yours comments
I started with assembly, the model is ver similar to the old Tamiya, for example you mast to close the hull and the turret. Need almost nothing of model filler. Show you the first steps:

Thank you guys for the comments, the technique you use is as described by Dennis. The alternative that Chris shows is another interesting variant, which I see that achieves a very similar result and very pleasing to the eye, I see that it comes very well.

Regarding the colors uses all Tamiya
Khaki (80%) Dark Red Brown (20%)
Dark Red Brown
Dark Green
Flat Yellow

Beautiful work on this. One question; what paints did you use to get such good coverage with the yellow stripes?



Hi, Chris! Just a quick note:

From my own personal experience, I like to airbrush the YELLOW AREAS FIRST. After the yellow dries THOROUGHLY, I will mask the potential "STRIPES" off with any suitable low tack "flex tape", and then I will airbrush the J.A. Green over the entire tank. Letting the Green dry thoroughly, I will then mask the Green areas off and proceed to airbrush the J.A. Brown onto the tank. Once the J.A. Brown has dried, I will gently peel all of the masking tape off. Invariably, painting my Japanese subject in this way yields great results. You can then go on to your favorite "weathering" processes...

You can use any of your favorite paints in this process. It all sounds rather elementary, but the above method works best for me...

Thanks for reading...



This is mine waiting to be stripped and repainted. I painted the yellow first but tried using masking fluid - big mistake. Need to try the flex tape route.

Absolutely much appreciated! THIS is what I like to see- So different from the endless WWII GERMAN stuff that dominates this, and other model-building sites.

Omar, THIS is VERY REFRESHING!!!

Concur with Gerald: "Well Done"!!!
