Does anybody make photo etch for this kit? I've looked around and I don't find anything. Any info appreciated.

I don't know of PE for this kit, and I have built a few. There are some items which can be found in the model railroad section of a well-stocked hobby store which are useful though, such as windshield wipers and steering wheels.

If you want to convert it to a Type 94 let me know.

Time spent modeling is not deducted from your lifespan.

I spent most of my money on beer and women. The rest of it I just wasted.

I am going to build this one OOB if I do it, however I am interested your insight and the conversion info.

These are some of the detail parts which I found useful when building softskins. These are all meant for HO scale trains, the wipers are particularly nice.

This is a trick for making replacement headlights. The basic shape is made from sprue turned in a Dremel tool. This is used to make a mold from Celluclay. Clear sprue is heated until soft and then pushed into the mold.

Here are Isuzu TX40 fuel trucks, the bottom two are modified into cargo carriers. There were almost twenty variants produced during the war. The bottom one has a wide cab with a hard top.

These are Type 94s. I thought it would be a simple thing to make a 4 x 6 conversion, but it turned out almost everything was different.

A vehicle dump on the Aleutian Islands showing several Japanese trucks. This is the only picture I found of trucks in camouflage, the norm was a solid color.

Yes they do. I never used their service because I always suspected they would do something like this.
