This model kit set pairs its classic model of the Type 90 tank (from Item 35208) with Japanese model maker Fine Molds’ Type 73, in what promises to be a great value diorama in a box!
The Type 90 main battle tank reached units from 1991, with 341 examples manufactured by 2009. A 120mm smoothbore gun put it on the cutting edge at the time of its design. The Type 73 was adopted back in 1973 but served concurrently with the Type 90 until deployment ended around 2010. An 80hp engine and capacity for 6 passengers made it a highly versatile servant to the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF).
