Chain of Command Japanese Platoon [15]

This seems to be dragging on for ages but I have actually, really finished the assembly, basing and undercoating stage of this long in the tooth project. I've actually really enjoyed it thus far, although I did need a bit of a break from gluing together the plastic infantry about half way through, but that's all done and dusted now. Today, I put together the two resin Type 97 Chi Ha tank kits from Warlord Games to finish the armoured support options for the platoon.

These are nicely detailed models but the semi-circular bendy turret aerials proved to be a right pain in the bum and I glued one of the turret hatches on the wrong way round, not that you'd really notice. They've now been based and spray undercoated in Humbrol Grass Green, ready for some funky camouflage and lots of washing and weathering. I'm taking a short break (again) from the Japanese project now, to focus on a couple of extra units for the Back of Beyond that have been hanging around waiting to be finished off for years.
