JGSDF Type 16 Maneuver Combat Vehicle Tamiya 1/35 Making
This time, I would like to make a Type-16 Tamiya kit, Maneuver Combat Vehicle, which I have wanted to make for a long time, but at one time it was scarce and hard to get. I’m not sure if it was because of increased demands for models due to corona or because of a shortage due to the production cycle, but I got it a little while ago, so I’m going to start building it right away.

It starts from making the top and bottom of the car body by biting the supports. It is quite a rare way of assembling.

Looking at the whole instruction manual, I think this area has the most number of parts. The front four tires can be turned. What’s more, it’s interesting how they work together and change at the same time. Since most of the kits that have such a complicated mechanism are fragile and break, I have often fixed them in the middle, so I was surprised that they are strong and move smoothly. The remainder will be fine as long as the paint doesn’t get in and the moving parts stick.

There are 8 rubber tires with a sense of precision. Should rubber tires also be painted? In my case, I like to paint after assembling all the parts, so I will paint the tires because the paint will stick out. Maybe I should fit only the tires later.

For the time being, all the wheels have been fitted. Even now, if I try hard, I can take it off again. There was a parting line in the middle of the tire, so I think it would look better if shaved with a file.

OVM seems to be concentrated at the rear of the vehicle. Even so, there are not so many parts. Considering that the previous kit made the battleship Musashi by including etched parts, this time the assembly is going very smoothly.

I started assembling the turret. It seems that the right and left armor plates are put in after the top and bottom are put together. Tamiya’s kit fits well, so there should be no problem.

The assembly of the Type 16 Mobile Combat Vehicle was completed without any problems.

The front four tires move, so if I turn a little, the expression changes and it’s interesting.

The position of the turret is pretty far back. This vehicle. Rather than just looking at the box picture, if I look at it closely after actually putting it together, it is considerably from the back. Thanks to that, there is a small area of the gun barrel, that sticks out of the whole body so so I don’t have to occupy space when decorating.

Assembling the basket at the back of the vehicle also has few parts and fits well, so it soon took shape.

Tamiya figures are quite realistic. Perhaps this is made more realistic by using 3D scanning. They have a Japanese look. The assembly is very similar to the WWII US tank crew set that I made in the past. Is the fitting of the parts of Tamiya’s recent figure kit like this? Maybe it’s comparable to resin figures.

This kit from Tamiya had a masking seal for painting lights and periscopes. It is the type that you cut it by yourself and peel it off and stick it. I think it was better than taking my measurements and cutting them. There are 10 pieces of periscope masking, so I thought it would be okay to fail, but it was just 10 pieces. The quantity is not enough to fail even one.

It is hard to cut out round stickers. But I managed to cut and paste it carefully.

There was also a sticker to reproduce the fact that there are many small holes in the muzzle brake. I appreciate this.

I made a lot of 5mm holes, and even though it was twisted in some places, I think it will look better by doing this work.

JGSDF Type 16 Maneuver Combat Vehicle Tamiya 1/35 Painting
The overall painting is flat black. Even after basic painting, I think the shading will be emphasized a little and the painted surface will be good, but I doubt whether it is true or not.

They are crews of armored vehicles. I blew a white surfacer. From here it may be brushwork.

It looks much better after basic painting. I wonder if it will be finished soon.

This time, I used the JGSDF tank color set from Mr. Color of Cleos. These are already sold separately and I got them, too. But I forgot to keep them as a set, and they are duplicated. That’s a typical thing for a modeler.

I was wondering what I should do with the tires when I was painting the fine parts. Is it okay if I wipe with thinner the area that sticks out with the airbrush? But at that time, the whole vehicle body was already painted in flat black. In the end, I painted a rubber black color tone with a brush with Vallejo Model Colors.

I doubt if it looks like an actual JGSDF uniform camouflage pattern, but I painted camouflage with a brush for now. Vallejo is easy to paint but the camouflage pattern is difficult. Or rather, I don’t have enough patience. The decals are attached to the vehicle, and the face of the figure is painted with oil color, so it’s better to dry it a little before blowing the matte clear. The tan area of the uniform actually looked a little green, so I painted it like that, but it might be an optical illusion.

The Type-16 mobile combat vehicle, which had been in process since around the end of the year, has been completed. I like armored vehicles quite a lot, and I have made some Strikers. The big tire gives a strong impression and it seems to move quickly.

When I see the video of the actual vehicle, the impact at the time of shooting the main gun is so big. I thought that it would aim properly and hit. The performance is probably high because shooting is done while driving and also shooting sideways while driving. Since armored vehicles have weaker defenses than tanks, their first-strike capability may be important in improving their survival chances.

The markings on all the decals are cool. This year is the Year of the Tiger, so I chose a vehicle of tiger mark. White Tiger. It is a vehicle belonging to the 1st Mobile Vehicle Company of the 42nd Rapid Response Activated Regiment belonging to the 8th Division of the JGSDF Western Army.

There was a stand to put half of the figure, so I put them together without thinking. Painting figurines is a bit troublesome, but I tried my best to make them. Basically, Tamiya kits often contain figurines, so if it is attached, I think I usually make them.

When I opened and closed the hatch of the cupola for commander many times, the root was broken. It is open and fixed, but I am setting the figure, so I think I can leave it as it is.

When I see photos of actual vehicles, equipment is painted in the same color as the body color. I changed the color of the metal parts. The handle of the tool is painted brown like wood in German vehicles, but this time I left it as the body color. It doesn’t look good as a model, but the rear part of the vehicle has accents such as taillights, so it’s okay.

The decal has turned a little white. I think it didn’t stick well. Tamiya’s decals seem to get squishy as soon as I use the mark softer, so I was cautious and rarely used the softer. Maybe I should have tried harder.

Since the rapid response regiment is said to focus on the aircraft transportation, perhaps they are considering forming a force capable of responding to an invasion by a particular country. The number of mobile combat vehicles will be about 200 by 2022. It seems to be deployed fairly evenly from north to south.

I recommend Tamiya’s type-16 mobile combat vehicle kit because you can build it quickly. The mechanism around the suspension is interesting, and it is fun to move the front 4 tires in combination even after completion.

    The camouflage on the figures’ uniforms looks very natural. Good work.
