Na-To Experimental Tank Destroyer questions.

Hi all!

I think about buying the Katana 1/35 kit of the Na-To Self Propelled Anti-Tank Gun.

I will soon receive the Ground Power magazine containing an article on this vehicle.

Three questions:

1) Is the Katana kit generally ok in dimensions and proportions?

2) What kind of tracks did the vehicle use? Can I use aftermarket Type 97 Chi-Ha tracks?

3) I know that the 75mm gun is not exactly the same, but can I use for the Na-To the Fine Molds aftermarket barrel for the 75mm gun of the Type 5 Chi-Ri tank?

Thanks for any answers and cheers,

Peter

They are different. Ha-To used this track. But, I cannot find the same track in other Japanese AFVs.

3) I know that the 75mm gun is not exactly the same, but can I use for the Na-To the Fine Molds aftermarket barrel for the 75mm gun of the Type 5 Chi-Ri tank?

The barrel of Na-To is the same as that of Chi-Ri.

Thank you so much, Taki!

That's all I need to know. So I think I will have to use the kit tracks (and I HATE resin tracks!).

By the way, I did not expect an answer so soon from you. What time is it in Japan? Do you ever sleep? happy.gif

Thanks again and cheers,

Peter
