FineMolds 1/35 scale Type 5 Chi-Ri medium tank

Subscriber-only early access review

FineMolds 1/35 scale Type 5 Chi-Ri medium tank
The Japanese Type 5 Chi-Ri medium tank was a proposed Sherman-killer that never made production - until now, thanks to FineMolds. Molded in tan plastic, the kit features well-detailed plastic parts, individual-link tracks, and a small sheet of photoetched metal. FineMolds provides several imaginary markings based on late-war markings and camouflage practice.
