I may have mentioned this before (although I'm not going back through the archives to check) but I have a bit of a minor obsession with the Japanese Type 10 Main Battle Tank. I have no idea if the thing actually lives up to its hype but I like it from a strictly aesthetic point of view. Heck, I even pre-ordered the Tamiya 1/35 kit when it was released last year, which is extremely rare for me to do with any scale model kit.
Anyway, Fujimi has now released a cute/super deform version of the Type 10 as part of their Chibimaru line. I passed up Fujimi's more serious 1/72 scale versions of the tank because that isn't a scale I normally build (well, when I actually build anything). The chibi version, on the other hand, is just too darn cute and weird to pass up. Funds are a bit tied up right now because of two upcoming Azone PN pre-orders but after that, I think I'm going to switch gears to modeling mode and order one or more of these neat little tanks.
Meanwhile, the 1/35 scale version already stashed away in my closet has a potential future as the main battle tank for one of my fictional countries in a doll/action figure back story I have in mind.
