I am currenly looking around for 1/35 scale WWII Japanese armor and various other vehicles or equipment. I know that Fine Molds and Tamiya make some great WWII Japanese armor vehicles. Where can I find some 1/35 scale Pit Road model vehicles, howitzers, self-propelled guns, and figures? Are there any good websites out there for ordering Pit Road models, specifically 1/35 scale Japanese equipment? Pit Road models are hard to find and come by. Japanese armor is a tough subject of models to find. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Hi Ryan i don't really know of any other manufacturers doing WWII japanese vehicles apart from the two you've already stated i'm not sure but i think there are a few all resin kits available but they're pricey and challenging to build it's a shame really with the amount of kits dedicated to most other countries who fought in the war it seems a lot of the Japanese stuff gets overlooked other than aircraft kits these are available in an abundance from the various top manufacturers

Hey Ryan,
HobbyLink Japan carries a few Pit Road kits.
They're not cheap and some look to be discontinued !!
