Hasegawa brings us the latest technology from Japan's food industry, the YANMAR Combine YH6115!

This type of combine is produced specifically for rice farming, and the latest model by Yanmar has been turned into a kit by Hasegawa, with completely new moulding based on thorough coverage of the vehicle.
The parts come moulded in red, white, clear, and black, and once completed, you can open and close the driver seat door, raise and lower the mowing section, and move the grain discharge auger as well! A driver figure is also included if you prefer to add a dash of realism to your kit. 
The parts are easy to assembly, and the separate colour moulding means it looks great even without paint (though paint is recommended for a more realistic touch).
When completed, this kit will measure about 137.5mm long and 69.5mm wide. The picture below is of the prototype of the driver of the machine.
