Takom 1/16 Type 94 Tank with interior

I find Takom 1/16 Type 94 an interesting kit. Just about all hatches open and you can see the inside very easily, especially at this scale. Takom never released an interior or a version with one though. Not really their thing I suppose. I thought maybe some one would create one, but no. So I bought a 3D printer and got a CAD program online and started on one. Have everything in place. Not all is cemented in place yet, for ease of painting, but it should convey the idea. Maybe a little ambitious? I don’t know, but it was fun and I learned quite a bit. So am I crazy?

It was some work. The idea is to have the tank slightly destroyed and abandoned. An idea with it close up, but doors open.

Next will be painting of the interior. I already have an idea for the next project and I’m not even finished here. The Zvezda STZ-5 is perfect to start to make the Odessa tank.


Wow that looks excellent so far Mike. So you just up and decided to start 3d printing some parts ? Lol very brave and you obviously know what you’re doing. Great job!

Looks great so far, very ambitious and well done, looking forward to seeing the finished product!

There was a learning curve for sure. I got a portable drafting board, Digital Angle Finder Protractor and a Digital Micrometer Caliper Tool to help with the next projects. Thanks for the comment.

Yea, my wife just shook her head. My dad was amazed at the technology although. I hope it all comes together. Thanks for looking.

Wait! That’s a secret sign of approval!


I was disappointed that Takom didn’t include a basic turret interior for their PzIB. Not even the receiver groups on the MGs.

Great work, man!!!

Thanks for commenting. I agree, Takom missed some opportunities. Maybe they will see these post and start to offer some basic interiors and accessories.

I’ve been waiting for someone to produce an interior for this kit too and was dismayed that nothing has come along… until I saw this thread. THANK YOU for being THAT GUY. I gave the turret interior a try but chickened out scratch building the hull interior.

What would you charge me for a set? Maybe I can help you offset what you spent getting this set tooled up. I’m seriously interested. I have a 3D printer but am nowhere near your skill level yet. Maybe one of these days. Until then, I want to keep you in business!

Please let me know. 4570govmt@gmail.com

Again, impressive work!


I would also very much be interested in the set of parts you’ve made. I don’t have a printer, so would just buy the parts from you, but if not, I have someone who can print them for me if you sell me the CAD files.

Hi, i too would be very interested in a couple of sets. Unfortunately i don’t have a 3d printer or the skills needed so i would need to buy the parts.

Very beautiful interior! Tell me, can you share stl. file? skryginserg@yandex.ru

Give me an e-mail and I can give you a link to the file or send the CAD file to you.
