You got it blankfile!  II am not sure if it is an early, mid, or late production model since the number of bogies / wheels is more than I usually see on models equipped with the Type 92 heavy machine gun in the hull.

 

Early:

Late Production w/ 13mm heavy machine cannon in hull:

It appears to be a mid-model from the battle of Rehe. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Rehe

A Type 92 first production model. Initial armament was two light 6.6 mm type 91, with one mounted in the hull. Belongs to a Cavalry division which took part in the attack of Harbin, 1932.

A standard, rearmed early production type 92. Notice the 13.2mm heavy Mg in the hull. First Special Tank Company of the 8th Division, battle of Rehe, march 1933.

Note the headlights on the last Type 89.  Can you name the small tank in the first photo?

Sumida M.2593

One Sumida armored rail car apparently hooked up to pull another. Note the rubber wheels that can be fitted for road use.

A couple of shots of the same Sumida P Armored Car from Ishikawajima auto -- what is shown here actually is the Type 90 Naval Forces Armored Car = there are some minor differences with the later Army model in armament (namely that the later 91 had a fixed machine gun in the turret while the 90 had only several gun slits to accommodate machine guns) -- note the same markings in both photos identifying this vehicle as Hokoku - 1, after the donation organization.  I assume the second photo is from when it was first donated in Japan, this first one showing it in "action" patrolling the streets of Shanghai.

 

Note the machine guns visible from the gun slits in the first photo, absent on the second, while the second does show a machine gun installed, this was apparently not a "fixed" placement, and it is noticably missing from the first photo.

Type 92 Armored Vehicle w/ cannon:

Type 97 TK with only machine gun:

 

Note: The main armament was the Type 94 37 mm tank gun, with 96 rounds, barrel length of 136 cm (L36.7), EL angle of fire of −15 to +20 degrees, AZ angle of fire of 20 degrees, muzzle velocity of 600 m/s, penetration of 45 mm/300 m, which was also used by Type 95 Ha-Go. However, due to shortages in the production of this weapon, most vehicles were fitted with a 7.7 mm Type 97 machine gun instead.[3]

Rare shot of the Type 3 Ka-Chi (I think even Zaloga said there was a "sole known photo" of the one making its landing with a commander standing up top. Note this one lacks a commander's cupola above the turret, but the number of wheels mark it as clearly a Ka-Chi. The rusted pontoons suggest the photo was taken after the war.

All right! except the last one. It's much older, to match the age of the Type 89. Note the lack of turrets.

 

A hint, it's not a Japanese design and it has Mark VI in the name.

That first pic was a Ho-To, not a Ho-Ro ;)

check the number of drivewheels and how the setup is, this is clearly ha-go suspension and not chi-ha.

 

and those others are carden lloyd tankettes, of which later japanese tankettes were based on.
