Type 3 Chi-Nu (IBG 1/72)

Just a small scale model of a WWII Japanese medium tank Type 3 Ch-Nu. Kit from IBG Models (Poland) comes along nicely and it’s a perfect fit for a weekend build. Also, if you play World of Tanks – you may see Chi-Nu there. Anyway, it was fun to build and try some new (for me) weathering techniques. Thanks for watching!

  1. Very nice!! An interesting looking tank.

  2. What a great build!
    Where did you get that extremely large matchstick 🙂

  3. Dmitry, I can’t believe its 1/72 scale. Looks bigger. Very well done, I really like the paint work. I couldn’t help but notice the little machine gun mounted on top. When I was growing up, a neighbor of ours had one these, he brought it home from the PTO. (it had a metal rod welded into the barrel, making it unable to fire). We not only played war with it, he would bring it to our grade school once a year so his son could show it for “show and tell”. I know it sounds nuts today, but we all thought it was cool !

  4. Excellent work on this scale – or any scale.


  5. It’s a small tank alright but it’s very nicely done. Very pleasing to eye. I played WoT for more than year until I got fed up, but the Chi-Nu was one of my favourite tanks there, the one I spent more time while in tier VI if memories serves me well. Thanks for posting

  6. Very well done, Dmitry!

  7. Thanks for fixing my mistake with a scale in the title 🙂

  8. tremendous paint job…hats off

  9. Beautiful paint and weathering work, especially for the scale. And the photography is top notch! Well done.

  10. This is an amazing build !!! If you didn’t include the scale in the description, I would have guessed it was much larger than it actually is. The build, the photography the weathering……….. everything is perfect.

    Well done my friend………….
