The subject is a Japanese Type 2 “Ka-Mi” amphibious tank. This vehicle was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), and it was closely based on the Type 95 “Ha-Go” light tank. It was designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific islands that didn’t have regular port facilities. Production commenced in 1942 and a total of 184 Type 2 amphibious tanks were made, although the design was really too late to participate in Japan’s island-hopping campaign. When used in water, large pontoons were attached to the glacis plate and rear deck to give it a top speed of 10km\/h. These pontoons could be shed as soon as it reached land. The turret featured a 3.7cm Type 1 gun and a coaxial Type 97 machine gun.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDragon’s 1\/35 scale kit uses 100% new toolings. In fact the chief designer is the same person who masterminded Dragon’s modern range of Panzer III and Panzer IV kits. Combined with Dragon’s technological expertise, the result is another masterpiece of kit engineering. The kit is closely based on measurements taken from a surviving tank on Peleliu (present-day Palau), the scene of ferocious fighting in late 1944. That ensures this kit of the Type 2 tank without its flotation pontoons is accurately dimensioned. This kit is produced to the highest Dragon standards, with wide use of slide molds to enable crisp detail. The one-piece upper hull and lower hull components, for example, are both slide molded. The Ka-Mi also includes DS tracks for easier assembly. This is a swimmingly good kit of a very rare and fascinating subject!\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #2b00ff;\"\u003eBuy any of the below Dragon 1\/35 IJN tanks and get FineMolds AF8 - 1\/35 Imperial Japanese Army Tank Crew free! \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.cyber-hobby.com\/products\/1-35-ijn-special-type-4-ka-tsu-w-torpedo-operation-tatsumaki\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eDragon 6849 1\/35 IJN Special Type 4 \"Ka-Tsu\" w\/Torpedo (Operation Tatsumaki)\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.cyber-hobby.com\/products\/1-35-ijn-type-2-ka-mi-amphibious-tank\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eDragon 6678 - 1\/35 IJN Type 2 (Ka-Mi) Amphibious Tank\u003c\/a\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\n\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.cyber-hobby.com\/products\/1-35-ijn-type-2-ka-mi-amphibious-tank-w-floating-pontoon-early-production\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eDragon 6916 - 1\/35 IJN Type 2 (Ka-Mi) Amphibious Tank w\/Floating Pontoon (Early ProduDragonction)\u003c\/a\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.cyber-hobby.com\/products\/1-35-ijn-type-2-ka-mi-amphibious-tank-w-floating-pontoon-early-production-1\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eDragon 6699 - 1\/35 IJN Type 2 (KA-MI) Amphibious Tank w\/Floating Pontoon Early Production\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.cyber-hobby.com\/products\/1-35-ijn-special-type-4-ka-tsu-amphibious-tracked-vehicle\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eDragon 6839 - 1\/35 IJN Special Type 4 \"Ka-Tsu\" Amphibious Tracked Vehicle\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.cyber-hobby.com\/products\/1-35-ija-type-95-light-tank-ha-go-late-production\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eDragon 6770 - 1\/35 IJA Type 95 Light Tank \"Ha-Go\" Late Production\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eFree gift\u003c\/span\u003e: \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/www.cyber-hobby.com\/products\/1-35-imperial-japanese-army-tank-crew\" target=\"_blank\" rel=\"noopener noreferrer\"\u003eFineMolds AF8 - 1\/35 Imperial Japanese Army Tank Crew\u003c\/a\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003e*Please note limited quantity available for the free gift.

been covered by a mainstream manufacturer before! The subject is a Japanese Type 2 “Ka-Mi” amphibious tank. This vehicle was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), and it was closely based on the Type 95 “Ha-Go” light tank. It was designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific islands that didn’t have regular port facilities. Production commenced in 1942 and a total of 184 Type 2 amphibious tanks were made, although the design was really too late to participate in Japan’s island-hopping campaign. When used in water, large pontoons were attached to the glacis plate and rear deck to give it a top speed of 10km\/h. These pontoons could be shed as soon as it reached land. The turret featured a 3.7cm Type 1 gun and a coaxial Type 97 machine gun.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDragon’s 1\/35 scale kit uses 100% new toolings. In fact the chief designer is the same person who masterminded Dragon’s modern range of Panzer III and Panzer IV kits. Combined with Dragon’s technological expertise, the result is another masterpiece of kit engineering. The kit is closely based on measurements taken from a surviving tank on Peleliu (present-day Palau), the scene of ferocious fighting in late 1944. That ensures this kit of the Type 2 tank without its flotation pontoons is accurately dimensioned. This kit is produced to the highest Dragon standards, with wide use of slide molds to enable crisp detail. The one-piece upper hull and lower hull components, for example, are both slide molded.

1/35 IJN Type 2 (Ka-Mi) Amphibious Tank

Product Description

Dragon 6678 - 1/35 IJN Type 2 (Ka-Mi) Amphibious Tank

The latest Smart Kit from Dragon is an esoteric 1/35 scale subject that has never been covered by a mainstream manufacturer before! The subject is a Japanese Type 2 “Ka-Mi” amphibious tank. This vehicle was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN), and it was closely based on the Type 95 “Ha-Go” light tank. It was designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific islands that didn’t have regular port facilities. Production commenced in 1942 and a total of 184 Type 2 amphibious tanks were made, although the design was really too late to participate in Japan’s island-hopping campaign. When used in water, large pontoons were attached to the glacis plate and rear deck to give it a top speed of 10km/h. These pontoons could be shed as soon as it reached land. The turret featured a 3.7cm Type 1 gun and a coaxial Type 97 machine gun.

Dragon’s 1/35 scale kit uses 100% new toolings. In fact the chief designer is the same person who masterminded Dragon’s modern range of Panzer III and Panzer IV kits. Combined with Dragon’s technological expertise, the result is another masterpiece of kit engineering. The kit is closely based on measurements taken from a surviving tank on Peleliu (present-day Palau), the scene of ferocious fighting in late 1944. That ensures this kit of the Type 2 tank without its flotation pontoons is accurately dimensioned. This kit is produced to the highest Dragon standards, with wide use of slide molds to enable crisp detail. The one-piece upper hull and lower hull components, for example, are both slide molded. The Ka-Mi also includes DS tracks for easier assembly. This is a swimmingly good kit of a very rare and fascinating subject!
