I have a hard time saying no to new shiny models. In this case my excuse was I dont have a Japanese Special Naval Landing Force!
Well here it starts. The first platoon of SNLF troops and a platoon of HMGs. Now I need to find two more BF platoons. An observation is that the BF figures are significantly thicker than Peter Pig. I think the Peter Pig miniature better represent the Japanese solider at the time with respect to size.
Two sections of Type 38 75mm guns. Assembly was a bit more tricky than usual for BF. There are no instructions.
A platoon of Type 95 Light tanks. I used the Vallejo Parched grass base color and then airbrushed Vallejo Air Tank Brown and Vallejo Air Camo Green. I wanted this to be a later war unit without the yellow stripes. Very easy to put together, minimal cleanup, and great looking overall. I can recommend these models.
Future plans include the following models to purchase:
- Type 98 20mm AA gun
- Mitsubishi Zero
- Hohei Chutai
- Type 96 150mm gun
