This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Tamiya's popular 1/48 Military Miniature Series features a broad line-up of models depicting historically important vehicles. This model is the first tank in current service - the Japanese Type 10 main battle tank. The model is not simply a smaller scale version of the 1/35 scale Type 10 (Item 35329) - it recreates a tank from the newer fourth production lot (C4), which was delivered from 2014 to Spring 2015 and featured a number of evolutions of the original design. The Type 10 was originally commissioned in 2010 and is a new cornerstone for the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) with Japanese-made 120mm main gun, modular armor, excellent maneuverability, and compatibility with the modern C4I network system.
- C4 production lot-specific features such as the altered fender and turret rack designs, plus the updated antenna are faithfully recreated.
- Special feature 3 Weights are provided in the kit to give the model a realistic heavy feel.
- Special feature 4 Link-and-length type assembly tracks feature 1-piece straight sections.
- Special feature 5 2 marking options are included, to recreate a Type 10 from the JGSDF 1st or 8th Tank Battalions.
- Special feature 6 Comes with 1 commander torso figure to add further life to the model.
