Komatsu G40 Bulldozer

Tamiya 1/48 scale

by Brett Green


Tamiya’s 1:48 scale Komatsu G40 Bulldozer is a compact model supplied in 53 parts on two grey plastic sprues. Moulding quality is excellent, with any ejector pin circles limited to areas where they will be hidden on the completed model. I was particularly impressed by the tracks and running gear, which are moulded quite convincingly as a single piece for each side.



In fact, engineering is cleverly done overall. It is quite possible – even preferable – to build the model in sub-assemblies that may be painted and weathered prior to final construction.

If you are looking for a refreshing light sorbet after a heavy course of complex conversion or scratch building, Tamiya’s 1:48 scale G40 Bulldozer will be just the ticket.



Building, painting and weathering of this small but perfectly formed kit will be described in Issue 51 of Model Military International magazine.
