1/48 Military Miniature Series no.88
Japan Ground Self Defense Force Type 10 Tank
Item No: 32588

Length: 199mm. Image shows assembled and painted kit.

Up-to-date and in 1/48!
Officially announced in 2010, the Type 10 is the fourth generation main battle tank serving the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF). It is equipped with a domestically-developed smoothbore 120mm main gun and automatic targeting system that allows tracking of targets while the highly mobile Type 10 is on the move. Modular armor on the turret and hull not only provides top level protection, it can also be removed to allow swift transportation across the Japanese archipelago on trailers and the like. Delivery to units commenced in 2012 and the Type 10 is envisaged to replace the long-serving Type 74.

About the Model
This is a 1/48 scale plastic model assembly kit of the JGSDF Type 10 tank. ★Length: 199mm, width: 72mm. ★This compact masterpiece was designed with extensive access to the actual tank, and captures the sloped form of the Type 10 with an intuitive parts breakdown. ★The model includes depictions of modifications seen in Type 10s from the C4 lot, which were delivered to units from the second half of 2014 onwards. ★Hull interior weights are included to add an authentically heavy feel. ★Commander torso figure adds further realism. ★Decals included to recreate 1st or 8th Tank Battalion markings.


★Thanks to cooperation from the JGSDF, C4 lot design specifics are accurately captured.

★The refined form of the Type 10 is lavishly rendered in compact 1/48 scale.

★Updated mudguard parts catch the eye, as do realistic assembly tracks with one piece straight sections.

★Anti-slip surface texture depictions are C4 lot spec, as are features such as turret rear storage boxes.

★The authenticity is further raised by the commander torso figure and realistic M2 machine gun.

★The turret upper surface is beautifully rendered. The commander's hatch can be depicted open or closed.
