Hi All and thanks by yours comments
I started with assembly, the model is ver similar to the old Tamiya, for example you mast to close the hull and the turret. Need almost nothing of model filler. Show you the first steps:

If you want to make this model, be careful with the version that brings the box, the front door of the hull is the initial version (PE), or at least that seems depending on the photos I could get.
In the latest versions, the type of door is just like the one that comes with the plastic model, not the PE one. I hope that the people of Pit Road, when assembling the model, have done so with some reference, since I realized later, I had already drilled the front to put the door of PE when I realized this that I mention. ..

Everything is looking so great so far.Your research into the Type 92 is great and will be great for all of us who decide to build this kit.Your Type 89 is an excellent build.That early style of armor has always the greatest fascination.

Hey Omar, like what you're doing here. Sorry I couldn't get on here before but, in regards to your Type 89 Otsu, I have the same Girls Und Panzer boxing and, as far as I've been able to determine, the P.E. muffler cover is only correct for G.U.P. genuine W.W. II tanks had a different type, though often they had none, so you could remove if you're looking for more accuracy. This past week I've been working on my 2 Kuroganes (1 Pitroad, 1 Fine Molds) and I have to say the Fine Molds is leagues ahead of Pitroad's; it looks like a toy in comparison.

New step, the base paint, before putting the decals... I had best luck than with the Type 92 with the paint, more experience, better result with the AK acrylics ...

The end of the Type 94 - Tk, the result obtained with the AK acrylics, did not like to me. I will come back with the Tamiyas...
