Experience the incredible history of WWII with the 1/48 INJ KOMATSU G40 32565 by Tamiya! Originally developed by Japanese forces to aid in airfield construction, the G40 Bulldozer was a groundbreaking addition to the battlefield. Despite its limited production of only 148 units, this innovative bulldozer was sent to both the northern and southern fronts. Although many were lost in the chaos of war, one G40 miraculously survived and is now proudly displayed at the Komatsu Techo Center in Shizuka, Japan. In 2007, the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers recognized the G40 as a Mechanical Engineering Heritage item, a true testament to its enduring legacy.
