Dragon Models 1:72 Armor Collector Series 60429
Mitsubishi Type 97 Chi-Ha Display Model
IJA 1st Tank Rgt, #32, Malaya, 1942

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Mitsubishi Type 97 Chi-Ha   3"   1.25"

One area where the Chi-Ha was deployed was Malaya from December 1941 through to the fall of Singapore in February 1942. Three Japanese tank regiments saw combat on the Malay peninsular as Japanese forces quickly moved south, and Dragon Armor's model depicts a tank belonging to the 3rd Tank Company of the 1st Tank Regiment. This regiment had a total of 31 Type 97 tanks, as well as some lighter Type 95s during this campaign. As well as being an Early-Production version, what stands out most on this model is the colorful camouflage scheme consisting of three colors plus bright bands of yellow. Company-level tactical markings are painted onto the turret and hull too. This attractive item allows collectors to field another Japanese tank in addition to the previously released Type 95 Ha-Go and Type 97 Chi-Ha Late Production.

Mitsubishi Type 97 Chi-Ha

Designed to replace the Type 89 in the infantry support role, the Type 97 prototype was completed in 1937 and the type entered full-scale production in 1938.

Dragon's 1:72 scale Chi-Ha Tank is constructed almost entirely of die-cast plastic, which allows for the greatest possible level of detailing. The rotating turret features a fixed main gun, rear facing machine gun and a delicate semi-circular antenna mounted on top. Battlefield equipment such as a jack, a shovel and a pick are separately mounted at the rear of the hull. Each of the top mounted engine exhaust muffler are fitted with a fine photo-etched metal heat-shield. Additional features include fine scale rivet head details on the top and underside and a clear view of the bell-crank suspension system through the vehicle's tracks.
