35A022 WW II Project: Japan Experimental Gun Tank, Type 5 (Ho-Ri I)
This is the 35A022 WW II Project: Japan Experimental Gun Tank, Type 5 (Ho-Ri I)
One of the most powerful tanks to have ever been designed by the Imperial Japanese Army before the end of the war, the Type 5 Ho Ri I was based on the chassis of the Type 5 Chi-Ri which itself was a heavier more powerful version of the Type 4 Chi-To. No prototypes of the Type 5 Ho Ri I are known to have been completed before the end of the war. Similar in design to the German Heavy Tank Destroyer Elefant, the Type 5 Ho Ri I had a fixed superstructure in the rear and was planned to utilize a 105 mm cannon.
This kit from Amusing Hobby is finely molded in multi-colors, has workable track links and its suspension is designed to fit diorama.
