A couple of years back I bought a box half full of 6mm models for $1. USD Here are two small tanks from that box. I have no clue as to what type of tank they are, what nation produced them. I'm not interested in manufacture just ID for gaming purposes. Thanks!

WWII Japanese?

Something reminiscent of the Japanese mediums

The one on the left, definitely reminds me of a Chi-Ha main medium tank for the war.

The other one I took a few moments to nail down. I'm confident its a Type 3 medium, not many made, kept for home defence. Might have been able to take on a Sherman at something approaching parity
