Type 92 105mm Howitzer

Kit #72-A-14

By Stephen Brezinski

Overall the kit is very very nice with sharp resin casting, good accurate detail, and good fit of the parts. Suitable for war-gaming or a static display. This is a much better Japanese artillery kit than Fujimi's infantry gun. This is the only kit of this in braille scale I know of. It is the motorized version but I know of no towing tractors in this scale. Either of Hasegawa's Japanese trucks could be modified though. Substituting spoked wood wheels can convert it to the horse drawn version. The carriage is the same as the 75-mm Type 91 field gun so a little reworking of the barrel can make an easy conversion.
