Greg
Thank by your comments, but this model it is not mine. I It put that photo like example, I will be try to take your advice, thanks again.

Well I show the firsts steps of the paint, the new advances:








Important, I had problems...

... be careful with the caterpillars since they are very delicate, it is problematic to put them in the model ... I suggest that you connect the traction wheel first, close the track and the last step, place the tensioner wheel.

Omar, just a thought. If the pontoons come off for normal land use and is stored elsewhere, then the weathering and wear will be different than the tank. weathering will not be the same as the tank. Depending on how the pontoons are stored the rust streaks might be in an odd direction compared to the tank. The photo of the built kit paint and weathering looks like the pontoon is permanently attached.

Hi Omar, Nice work so far, one observation though, the intake tower is on backwards, the top should be level, not tilted back as you have it.

Hi Southpier, the mayority of the Japanese tanks were to small. I sorprised when I knew of Type 2 tank. In this case is similar to a Tiger I, but without armored and a very little gun, It was similar a little boat when it be had put the pontoons, look the advances:














The details of the main gun and the machine gun. I suggest make all the details, opening the doors if you choose to do the KaMi without the pontoons, the model has a big level of the detail in the turret.

Well, I decided wich will be the next Japanese Tank that I will do, It is a Type 2 (KA-MI), in only one color, a little stop with the camouflages with yellow line. I hope to have better result with the paints, because I did not like the finishes obtained in the last two tanks.
The kit is one Dragon Model, the number 6712 (IJA Type 2 (KA-MI)with Floating Pontoons.
The kit:

Hi All

I decided to show you my new project, the idea is to build as many Japanese armor from the Sino-Japanese war period until 45. I'll start with a Type 89B-Otsu. In this case the first problem was to find the model kit, you can only get Kit 41106 from the FineMolds firm of Girls und Panzer der Film
The Kit





Type 89B- Otsu
The objective to be made:




The progress:































Greetings, Omar



Neat choice! I think the yellow-stripe "confusion camo" is super-cool!

The end of the Type 94 - Tk, the result obtained with the AK acrylics, did not like to me. I will come back with the Tamiyas...

New step, the base paint, before putting the decals... I had best luck than with the Type 92 with the paint, more experience, better result with the AK acrylics ...
