Type 4 "Ho-Ro", FineMolds, 1/35

Greetings to all forum members.

This is the last model I was able to finish in the last few weeks.

The self-propelled 150 mm Type 4 "Ho-Ro" howitzer was built in small quantities (approximately 12 units). It saw action in the Philippines and on the island of Okinawa.

The kit is from FineMolds, . It is a well detailed kit, with a very good fit of the pieces. The tracks are made of plastic, with whole long sections. The upper section imitates correctly the fall between support and support.

It is painted in the classic Japanese tricolour scheme. The wethering is made with washes with AK and Vallejo products and pigments from Vallejo and Art Casttle.

I hope you like it, and any criticism is welcome.

Thank you very much.

  1. I like this build a lot ! You rarely see Japanese armor built, and there's no need for criticism here. It looks spectacular !


  2. That’s a really nice build of a rare piece of Japanese armor.
    I’ve seen one in person at the American Heritage museum in Massachusetts.
    According to the museum, their example is the only one left in the world. Here’s s a few pics I took of it.

  3. That's a sharp looking build of an unusual subject - well done!
