High quality resin vehicles in 28mm (1/56 scale) for table top war gaming.

About this project

Welcome to the “Tanks in Manchuria (1932-45) in 28mm by Trenchworx” Kickstarter Project!

In 2014, Trenchworx successfully completed our first Kickstarter Project, Tanks of WWI, which raised more than $20,000 and supplied nearly 1,000 highly detailed resin models to 170 backers around the globe. With our new project, Tanks in Manchuria (1932-45), we are looking to expand our existing range of Japanese and Soviet vehicles used prior to and during World War Two in the border conflicts around Manchuria from 1932-1945.

Why the Manchurian Conflict?

A few models from this time period have been available on our website as 3D prints for the past several years. Our Japanese Type 92 Armored Car has been a hot seller since before we had a website. The goal of this Kickstarter project is to convert these existing models, as well as new designs, into resin models for mass production.

What will you get?

If funded, we will begin by offering four tanks used in Manchuria throughout the 1930s, with two tanks from each side of the conflict. As funding progresses and Stretch Goals are met, the scope of models available will increase, allowing even more options for each pledge. Of course, we have some great freebies planned for you as well.

  • T-26 Light Tank
  • BT-7 Fast Tank
  • T-26 Model 1933 [available at $9,500]

Pledge Levels

For this project, we’ve decided to keep pledge levels simple by offering a pledge by quantity system that allows you to pledge for the number of tanks that you want—all at the same price. The individual price per model will decrease as the quantity you order increases, so higher pledge amounts will get you more for your buck. This system alleviates the need for “add on” pledges unless you want 11-19 or 21+ models (in which case we are more than happy to accommodate).

Stretch Goals & Bonuses

Each Stretch Goal achieved will either make a new vehicle design Available to choose from or unlock a Bonus perk. To make things simple (see a trend here?), we’ve decided that the level at which you pledge will determine the quantity of free Bonus rewards you receive.

  • 1-2 tanks – Coasters Only.
  • 3-9 tanks – 1x of each Stretch Goal Bonus
  • 10-19 tanks – 2x of each Stretch Goal Bonus
  • 20+ tanks – 3x of each Stretch Goal Bonus

Please note that the free rewards apply only to the Stretch Goals marked as a BONUS.

  • Coasters [Bonus]
  • Objective Markers [Bonus at $8,000]
  • Damage Tracker [Bonus at $11,000]
  • Japanese Tank Commander [Bonus at $18,500]
  • Soviet Tank Commander [Bonus at $23,000]
  • Free Tankette (choice of T-38 or Type 94) [Bonus at $26,000]

Japanese – Type 79 Ko-Gata [Available]

During the initial stages of conflict, the Japanese used WWI era tanks that were purchased from France and England. These were successful at the time, since the Chinese forces they were fighting didn’t have tanks of their own.

This FT-17 variant will be equipped with Japanese MG and 37mm infantry gun options.

  • Die Idee ist ja nicht schlecht. Die bekannteren „Standardpanzer“ gibt es zwar schon zum Teil bei Warlord Games, aber gerade die lokalen Spezialpanzer wird man sicher erstmal nur über den kickstarter hier bekommen…

    • Jain. Zumindest bei den Japanern bekommt man fast alle der Sachen von Company B. Ich hoffe jedoch hier mal auf Versionen in vernünftigem Guss.

  • Dürfte soweit ich weiß der erste Typ 92 im Tabletopmaßstab überhaupt sein.
    Jetzt noch ein Chiyoda Armored Car und für die Russen einen T-18 und die Sache wäre perfekt :).
