Yellow Cat Type 1 Halftrack APC Hoha, 1/35, 35014

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$145   

Very, very rare and highly detailed model cast in high definition resin. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. From tanks-encyclopedia.com: The Type 1 Ho-Ha half-track was an armored personnel transport designed and introduced by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1941 and finally put into production in 1944. Its main purpose was to help the modernization of the Imperial Japanese Army by increasing the number of mechanized infantry regiments. This way, Japanese ground forces would catch up with other developed nations of the time that had already invested in this field, specifically the US. Mechanized infantry, unlike regular units, would have been faster and would have had an easier time dealing with the rough terrain that was more and more often encountered by the Japanese as the war progressed in China and in the hilly or mountainous landscape of the Pacific islands.

Yellow Cat Japanese Army Type 4 Medium Tank Chi-To, 1/35, 35029

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$149   

Very, very rare and highly detailed model cast in high definition resin. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. From tanks-encylopedia.com: The Type 97 Chi-Ha's successor - Type 4 Chi-To.Among the various medium tank designs developed in 1944, the Chi-To was probably the most promising. The development started while the Type 97 Chi-Ha Kai was still in production in 1943. The specifications were simple, requiring 75 mm (2.95 in) of armor and a high velocity 75 mm (2.95 in) gun. It was intended to be used against the most current Allied tank of the time, the M4 Sherman. The Type 4 Chi-To plans were ready in early 1944, but production was delayed due to steel shortages, mostly reserved to the Imperial Navy. Allied bombings and US submarine tactics also played their role in these shortages. Eventually, only two were built, a prototype and a pre-production vehicle, tested in 1944. Mitsubishi planned an optimistic 25 tank delivery rate per month, which was never realized. In the fall of 1944, it was decided to keep these tanks for the defense of the Japanese home islands. It is not known if the pre-production tank ever reached full operational status. Nonetheless, if the war took another course and the Olympic Operation would have been carried out, the Type 4 Chi-To would have been a formidable opponent, equal to the late variants of the Sherman. It was the most advanced Japanese tank to reach pre-operational level during WWII.
