Ron Garcia Had this in my stash since the mid 80's and always wanted to build it - especially since I've been building a lot of multimedia British tanks lately. A nice quick weekend build. The only thing that took some time was masking the hard edge camouflage. I'm going to build Takom's Chieftain Mk.XI next and I'm sure this kit will look rudimentary next to it, but it was fun to just build an easy model for once. I can't recommend it since there are so may new versions of it out now, but if you've had it in your stash for 30 years like I did, give yourself a break and knock it out for a headache free build!

rick weller cant find where piece a9 goes? can ya help me out?
6. July 2017 at 20:41:19
Ron Garcia I toss pretty much all my "leftovers" after a build but I managed to find a set of instructions on the internet. From the parts map it looks like A9 is a mounting piece for a motor. All these ancient Tamiya tanks used to be motorized so, as you probably noticed, there are gaps and holes in the lower hull to accommodate this. A9 looks like it goes over the hole on the inside of the lower hull. With no motor, it is not necessary. Hope that helps! BTW, I built one of the Takom Chieftains immediately after this and though this one may be less accurate and not as state of the art as Takom's offering, I found this build much more enjoyable - except for the fact that part E45 somehow disappeared right at the end of the build and I had to fashion a crude scratchbuilt one!
7. July 2017 at 16:48:17
rick weller you mean takom's model isn't as accurate as tamiyas model but its more fun to build aside from a missing piece? cuz u said takom twice :)
7. July 2017 at 21:40:21
Ron Garcia I see how my sentence looked confusing. Takom's is clearly more accurate but required more work to complete. Fun is subjective. Some may like fiddling around with small pieces, PE parts, individual track links, etc. while others like a quick clean build. For some, accuracy is of paramount importance, while for others, if it looks like it, it's good enough. I fall somewhere in between. I like the new state of the art kits but find building them sometimes becomes tedious taking a long time to complete. Older kids are sometimes clunky but usually build much faster. That's why I like to build a mix of old and new kits so I don't get burnt out. BTW, the missing piece was my fault and I'm sure it'll show up someday. Losing it in no way diminished my "fun" in building it. I was just pointing out that with model building, something always comes up near the end that throws you for a loop. This one was no exception.

Ron Garcia So after finishing Tamiya's ancient Chieftain, I started working on Takom's new version. I'd have to say, I enjoyed building Tamiya's better. I was done in a weekend (with the build portion) vs two weeks for Takom's. It wasn't super complicated but had several fiddly assemblies that took hours to get done. A lot of the subassemblies had no positive attachment points so I had to play around with them to get them straight. Connecting the front plate that sticks up from the front hull to two PE connectors that wrap around the light guards took a considerable amount of time. The gun barrel slopes slightly downward because of the vinyl mantlet cover (which is pretty much buried in the turret). This was my first Takom kit and I don't know if this is usual for them but the sprue gates were HUGE! Sometimes I wondered if I was removing a portion of the part as I removed the excess plastic. No color callouts during construction was also a major disappointment. I wish they listed paints other than Mig paints but maybe they have some kind of exclusive deal with each other. Having said all that, the kit is clearly superior to Tamiya's and looks nice after completed. My enthusiasm for a kit starts to dwindle the longer it takes to finish so I'd have to give this one a slight recommend because of issues outlined above.

playtime 222 Sigh. Just can't decide. I've already made the Tamiya which is supposed to be a mix of a 3 and a 5. I saw a Chieftain going through it's paces at Bovingdon in the mid-70s - I would like to build the Takom kit of that one but no idea which mark it would be.

16. June 2016 at 19:40:22
James C I'm surprised by how many people have this kit in the stash but have not built it. It does have some inaccuracies but is a great little kit. ;)
16. June 2016 at 20:33:14
carrey I got approx 500 unassembled kits in total...
16. June 2016 at 20:33:43
playtime 222 Hah my non-modelling friend think my 130ish is a lot but I keep telling them I'm below average :D On the accuracy issue, I have read it's somewhere between a 2 and a 5 but it looks like a Chieftain to me so I'm happy. The fit is good and the see-through thing isn't that bad with the skirts on and if you close the hatches. The only thing easily visible is the light coming from behind the gun barrel if anything is left open, so the short cut is to blank that off and close everything else. I went overboard on mine for the hell of it and blanked off all the holes.

JDenmark I got a lot of enjoyment building this kit. Tamiya quality as always makes it this way.

Directions are clear and easy to understand. Pieces fit together where and how they should (I'm looking at you Italeri!!!)

Barrel is 2 piece and is the worst part of the kit: with the thermal wraps and details it is really difficult to clean up mold lines and flash.

Headlight guards are sort of clumsy. If I were to build this again I would leave the lights off until the end, as it's difficult to do a high detail headlight job on them once they're on.

There is a hole in the bottom of the hull for RC operation. Also slots inside the hull for battery/motor pack. Not noticeable if the model is sitting flat though.

Some of the external details on the turret are crude, but they can be sanded off and re-done.

Rear grille above engine compartment is good, rear of the tank is generally very nice. I guess I'm trying to say I really like the view of the tank when she's leaving!

Machine gun is poor and begs for an upgrade.

Quality: 4.7/5.0
Out of Box Details: 3.9/5.0

Frank Krause Hi Barry,
since MENG picks up kits like the AMX-30 and Leopard 1 , there might be a slight chance for a "new" Chieftain. If yes, I would get one!

MICHAEL WOODHOUSE Thanks Martyn - I usually try when on holiday in UK to collect as memento bits of flat stone like the one used here - its simple but quite effective!
17. March 2014 at 18:26:38
Barry Lloyd Looks good Mick, I didn't realise you'd built a Chieftain. It's not a bad kit despite the age, I don't think many (any?) other companies have a Chieftain so there's not much choice. I'd like to do a recovery vehicle, I think there's a resin conversion kit available.
17. March 2014 at 18:38:32
MICHAEL WOODHOUSE Hi Barry - thanks - built this in early 2013. Yours looks pretty fine too especially the figures - I took an easy option! How about putting in on Transportor or even a flat bed Railcar!

Markus Fabke Gebaut wurde er OOB mit ein paar Eduard Ätzteilen, lackiert wird er im Manöveranstrich wie er in Deutschland gefahren wurde.
Bei Tamiya geht es wie gewohnt mit den Laufrädern, Fahrgestell und Unterwanne los.
Tamiya typisch in den 70. bzw. 80 Jahren, waren die Unterwannen, sie hatten und haben noch Öffnungen für die Motorsteuerung.
Die müssen verschlossen werden, diesmal habe ich nicht Plastikshet genommen, sonder habe die Öffnungen mit normales Tamiya Tape von innen verschlossen und von außen bin ich mit vallejo Spachtelmasse ran gegangen.
Wie man unschwer auf dem Karton Bild sehen kann gibt es am Turm beim Kanonenrohr eine Stoff Blende, die ist im Bausatz nicht vorgesehen, ich werde sie mir aus etwas Papiertaschentuch und Holzleim selber machen.

6. March 2016 at 16:54:18
Markus Fabke Als ich mit dem OOB Zusammenbau fertig war, war ich dann doch nicht so zufrieden und haben aus einem alten Eduard Ätzteilsatz zum Tamiya Chieftain dann doch noch das eine oder andere Ätzteil verwendet.

Ätzteile kamen dann doch noch am Turm und er Wanne zum Einsatz, wie die Halterungen für die Kästen an der Wanne, an der Kommandantenkuppel bei den Optiken als Scheibenwischer, an den Staukörben usw.
6. March 2016 at 16:57:35
James C Excellent work Markus and I really like your camouflage colours as well. I used Tamiya XF-5 on mine and I think it was a mistake comparing it to mine now. Your Khaki Drab looks much better. ;)
6. March 2016 at 19:45:11
Markus Fabke @James C ;), Thank you for your comment.
I Uses, diluted as the main color Tamiya XF-51 Khaki Drab I used the Tamiya colors with Tamiya 87077 Thinner.
The cuffs at the gun was painted with Tamiya XF-49 Kahki, the rubber cushions on the chains were painted with Vallejo 306 Dark Rubber, before the chains were painted with Tamiya XF-68 Nato Brown.

The camouflage was painted with Tamiya XF-61.

Your Chieftain looks good :), try your colors darken slightly.
Try at your Chieftain colors to make a little darker with a filter

Markus Fabke Als erstes wurde die Grundierung von valljeo grau auf die Bausatzteile.

Die Tarnlackierung wurde aufgebracht.
Verwendet habe ich als Hauptfarbe Tamiya XF-51 Khaki Drab, verdünnt habe ich die Tamiya Farben mit Tamiya 87077 Verdünner mit dem gelben Deckel.
Die Manschetten am Kanonenrohr habe ich mit Tamiya XF-49 Kahki lackiert, die Gummipolster an den Ketten wurden mit vallejo 306 Dark Rubber lackiert, vorher wurden die Ketten mit Tamiya XF-68 Nato Brown lackiert.

Die Tarnbemalung wird lackiert, wie sie in England, Kanada und Deutschland zu dieser Zeit üblich war, auf das Khaki Drab kam von Tamiya XF-61 Dar Green drauf.
Dazu habe ich vorher mein UHU - Tack in Wurstrollen geformt und sie dann in Form der Tarnung auf dem Chieftain verlegt.

Die Details habe ich bemalt, wie Rücklichter und Scheibenwischer, davon hat der Chieftain sehr viele.

Das Tarnnetz habe ich aus einem Verlinden Netz und mehre Küchenkräutern gemacht, als Kleber habe ich einen UHU Klebestift genommen.

Als nächsten Vorgang werde ich jetzt den Chieftain mit Klarlack lackieren und die Decals auftragen.

Jason C Lordy PC. When you decide to go for 1/35, you don't hang about!
20. November 2015 at 15:10:04
Edward M It was going at auction for $35, so it was too good to pass up. Plus the Chieftains were why I decided to do 1/35...saw a photo of one head-on as a boy of seven or eight and thought it looked like the meanest thing in the world, with those smoke grenade launchers.
21. November 2015 at 01:20:55
Jason C I was looking more at the other ten or so kits you've also acquired! I agree though that the Chiefy looks the business.
21. November 2015 at 09:38:03
Edward M Usually, stash increases can be tied to a decrease in my general level of perceived well-being.
21. November 2015 at 19:10:53
Jason C Well hang in there. I'm 11 months in to the sentence, and it still feels like a big adjustment. Of course one can now claim that the stash is actually an inheritance to be passed on.
22. November 2015 at 11:22:24
Edward M That's precisely the argument being made for the 1/35 stuff!

3. September 2015 at 20:15:51
Laurent Demaille I bought it 1,5 year ago, such before TAKOM announced theirs. Anyway, prices will so much higher than this one. I like very much this tank, as you say Dieter, it is a good base. I am using Eduard photo-etch with. I wanted to buy also a cheap kit, not to think too much before to start it. My project is also to make different british tanks through ages and generations. James, don't wait anymore to start with this one :D

James C Very tempting. At the moment I'm trying to decide between the Gepard, M48 and Chieftain (all old Tamiya kits) Looking forward to seeing your Chieftain with side skirts on and painted. ;)

Laurent Demaille I have to finish photo-etched parts, then texture turret and hull. But I will finish some models, before to continue on. The Eduard set made me crazy at a moment !

Hi all,

this project I had finished last year. I had shown it last year at the GMM at Würzburg.

I decided not to paint it but show it in its ?natural beauty?!

The paint job was very time consuming as one may expect! Quite a lot of masking and re-taping was required. At the end it was one of the projects with the longest duration in completing it!

Don?t ask me where I got the resin parts from. This project had developed to a ?shelf queen? over the years. I remember that I had started it in 1994 but had lost interest in it and in consequence put it aside hidden in my cellar for year.

My intention is to give you just a word of clarification.
I used the TAMIYA side skirts, or as sometimes referred to as "bazooka plates"!

If I had to do it again, I would ask Derek Hanson from AA for a set of their side skirts, as the TAMIYA approach in mounting the side skirts is bull-shit, as described its best!
TAMIYA had in mind to motorize this kit that required simplifying the side skirts mountings!
In consequence all the mounting plates on top of the skirts had to be cut from plastic strips and detailed with punched out bolts!

Once upon a time?????, that?s how fairy-tales start.

Do you remember ?Snow-White? when you were a young. She was kissed back to life!

That?s what happened with this kit! Literally spoken!

Finally I finished it and I must say I?m more than satisfied with the result.

Greetings

Hauke

Duncan Cook Diese Berlin Tarnung kam meines Wissens nach gegen Ende der Dienstzeit bei der Royal Army auf stimmt das? Und wieviel Aufwand müsste ich betreiben um den Airfix Mk:I in einen MK.8c umzubauen?
Ds wäre ganz toll wenn du mri da helfen könntest.
20. June 2013 at 22:27:58
Hauke Krapf

Duncan,

ja, da liegst Du richtig. Diese Tarnung hatte der OIC der D Sqn, 4/7 DG im Jahre 1982 eingeführt, welche damals die British Armoured Squadron in Berlin stellte. Aus diesem Grund macht es nur Sinn einen Chieftain Mk8C zu verwenden. 1987/88 als 14/20 Hussars dann die British Armoured Squadron in Berlin stellte wurde dann der Chieftain MK10 eingeführt, mit der Stillbrew Zusatzpanzerung.

Ich füge Dir nun eine Liste mit den notwendigen Änderungen ein.
Englisch beherrscht Du ja perfekt.

It is worth being aware of the fact that the modifications required to Tamiya?s kit depend on the period being modelled. I would suggest that there are four main types that one might consider:

1. Detailing the Tamiya kit of the Mk.3 to include the items which Tamiya omitted for reasons of moulding limitations and cost but keeping it as a Mk.3
2. Updating the kit to the ?as built? configuration of the Mk.5 (the final build model)
3. Updating the kit?s ?as built? configuration to the upgraded configuration of the Mk.6 (i.e. IFCS, new transmission decks etc.). Mk.5s rebuilt to this standard appear to be Mk.7
4. Updating to Stillbrew & TOGS fit (I haven?t covered this here, as it is a major rebuild and mine is an earlier version. Bear in mind that Stillbrew pre-dated TOGS, so the latter is not obligatory

Most of the details can be seen in published photographs if you look carefully, although when I did my research, this was not the case. The vehicles that I examined were all type 2. onwards but most of the points in 1. were present also, so here goes (this is largely from memory, so I may miss a few):

Hull

Mk.3

1. Replace the glacis splashguard with one with a bend near the top and add the stays which attach it to the headlight guards
2. Replace the rear portion of the headlight guards with ones which project further back
3. Replace the wading rail with 1mm x 1mm U section brass
4. Add the hooks for the wading trunking (one on glacis, one on exhaust box, one on LHS and two on RHS)
5. Add the hull fire extinguisher handles and brackets between the first and second trackguard stowage bins each side
6. Add the retaining clip for the driver?s hatch when open
7. Replace the splashguards either side of the driver?s periscope
8. Add the trunking for the dozer blade inboard of the right front stowage bins
9. Add wing mirrors to the front trackguards
10. Add the retaining catch for the open driver?s hatch on the glacis and its protective plate
11. Add hasps and padlocks to all stowage bins
12. Rebuild the intake on top of the exhaust box on the hull rear
13. Rebuild the armoured box for the telephone on exhaust box on the hull rear (it is easier to just rebuild the exhaust box as well, or there will be a hole where the telephone comes off) as it is spaced off the exhaust box on four threaded posts
14. Add hooks for two spare tracklinks on the rear face of the exhaust box
15. Rebuild the inner ends of the rear mudguards, which are the wrong shape
16. Add the pressed ?X? reinforcement to the sides of the hull rear stowage bins
17. Rebuild the light clusters on top of the rear mudguards, as they should not be identical both sides
18. Add the rests for the opened outer panels of the transmission covers inboard of the long stowage bins on the hull sides
19. Add the threaded socket to the top of the ?T? shaped panel over the engine
20. Replace the triangular panel at the right front of the engine deck (over the engine breathers) with a louvred one
21. Add the brackets which are used to bolt the trackguard bins to the trackguards. Those between the square and triangular bin are attached to the fire extinguisher pull handle brackets
22. Remove all the lifting handles on the louvred engine and transmission covers, add mesh covers to them and replace the lifting handles from wire or rod
23. Add tow small attachment points (like towing/lifting eyes) to the extreme front of the glacis, for the dozer blade
24. Add a bazooka plate support arm between the front roadwheel and idler
25. Replace the bazooka plate brackets on the hull sides
26. If the bazooka plates are to be fitted, replace them with brass or plastic sheet
27. If the bazooka plates are to be omitted, rebuild the outer ends of the support arms to the correct pattern

Mk.5

1. Replace the entire transmission covers with the new version, which has two central lift out panels horizontally and shorter outer hinged panels, and build up the hull rear plate and rear of the ?T? piece above the engine
2. Replace the exhaust pipes with a more curved version and flanged outer ends
3. Remove all but the lower horizontal of the wading rail from behind the transverse depression stop rail on the engine decks
4. Replace the gun crutch with a version similar to that used on Challenger, but with longer pivoting arms
Plus all the above

Mk.6 or 7 or 8
As for Mk.5

Turret

Mk.3

1. Rebuild the base and cover for the loader?s periscope. The latter can come from a Challenger.
2. Add the polygonal overpressure relief valve cover behind the commander?s cupola
3. Add the two blocks with threaded holes below the gun mantlet for removing the 120mm barrel
4. Extend the thermal sleeve as far forward as the rear of the fume extractor
5. Rebuild the turret stowage baskets, or at least the way they are attached to the turret as they are attached by brackets not welded direct to the turret side
6. Add the armoured pipe and housing below the LHS stowage basket which supplies power to the searchlight
7. Replace the cover for the commander?s sight
8. Add a cable from the block on the left of the cupola to the commander?s GPMG
9. Add a cable from the rhomboidal block on the right of the cupola to the commander?s spotlight
10. Add two cable guides to the top outer ends of the turret rear plate
11. Add the stop for the searchlight door to the door front
12. Add the four lifting rings (there are at least two versions) to the top of the searchlight housing
13. Cut the top face of the searchlight housing from the inner rear corner, perpendicularly to the front and rear, to a point directly forward of it and immediately behind the front plate. There should be a small overlap of the front plate compared to the inner edge of the top plate. Fill the inside face of the searchlight
14. Add the three blocks on the turret (two forward, one behind) that support the searchlight, and the brackets on the light and their associated bolts.
15. Add a hasp to the central part of the join in the loader?s hatch
16. Replace the brackets for the smoke dischargers with ones made from flat section strip
17. Detail the right side and rear faces of the gunner?s sight
18. Add a pad to the inside of the forward loader?s hatch and a strip inside the join between front and rear hatches
19. Rebuild one side of each of the smoke discharger clusters to represent the correct cast shape
20. Drill (carefully) down the fixing wheel on the top of the commander?s spotlight
bracket to give the impression that it is a ring
21. Add the brackets to the commander?s stowage bin to space it off the turret and fill the inner face to avoid a hollow appearance

Mk.5

1. Add the rectangular (instead of the polygonal design) overpressure relief valve cover behind the commander?s cupola
2. Replace the rectangular gun control equipment cover behind the commander?s cupola with a trapezoidal design, with handles on the edges
3. Replace the 120mm barrel with an L11A3 or A5 version, similar to that from a Challenger. If you use a Challenger gun, extend the cover to the mirror housing on the muzzle so that the base is in line with the tip of the muzzle. The slope of the rear of the mirror housing is also too shallow and needs re-angling or preferably cutting back to represent the mirror housing and having a cover added to represent the rubber sheet version
4. Add the light projector next to the gunner?s sight and the cable and its cover which join the two
5. Replace the left side turret stowage basket with a larger design which extends out to the edge of the searchlight. Some had a plate joining the basket to the light. At some point, the basket was apparently modified with a downwards extension in the front outside corner for a container of NBC decontaminant (like a large fire extinguisher, as on Challenger) and stowage on the underside of the basket for the associated tool roll.
6. Add mesh inserts for both stowage baskets.
7. Remove all detail from the cupola top outside the raised concentric ring and add a ring of thin plastic sheet to extend its diameter. The front portion is bent down to maintain the field of view of the commander?s sight.
8. Replace the NBC pack with the No.6 Mk.2 design
9. Replace the antenna bases with the Clansman type (as found in Challenger but there are actually six and not four webs below the rubber upper part
10. Add the various small radio-related details to the left of the cover for the turret battery access hatch
11. Replace the commander?s periscope ring with the angled type as found on Challenger
12. Some vehicles have a large rectangular bin for APDS projectiles in the left turret stowage basket, bolted to a retaining strip under the basket floor
13. Add the armoured box for the aerial tuning unit antenna ahead of the commander?s stowage bin, with a portable fire extinguisher below
Plus all the above, less 2 and 4

Mk.6 or Mk.7 or Mk.8

1. Replace the rectangular gun control equipment cover behind the commander?s cupola with a trapezoidal design, with handles on the edges
2. Replace the ranging MG to the left of the mantlet with a welded plate to cover the hole
Plus all for Mk.5 less 1 and 12

Plus the usual filling motorisation holes in the lower hull, replacing moulded-on grab handles etc..

Hallo Duncan,

diesen Schutzmantel habe ich aus MILIPUT modelliert und nach dem Aushärten hatte ich Falten mit einem dünnen Fräsaufsatz, eingespannt in die Bohrmaschine, eingearbeitet.

Du kannst aber auch die TAMIYA Spachtelmasse, am besten die weiße, dafür nehmen.
21. June 2013 at 14:48:22
Duncan Cook Danke für die schnelle Antwort Hauke, mal gucken ob ich das bei meinem sogar noch Nachrüste.
21. June 2013 at 15:29:09

Hauke Krapf

Hi all,

This is my last project I started two weeks ago. It is the AA Chieftain ARV Mk5, that uses the TAMIYA Chieftain kit as donor!

By the way ? Tamiya didn?t label its kit correctly. It?s in fact a Chieftain Mk3, not a Mk5.

As usual with AA models, it requires a certain level of modeling skills.
The front plate of the TAMIYA lower hull had to be cut off, as the Chieftain ARV utilized a completely different front section but it is provided by AA. As the AA resin front plate was not properly aligned some surgery and filling was required, but I can assure you, finally it fitted perfectly!

Triumph of the will!

I recommend using photos of actual ARVs as reference as the AA assembly guide is not as clear as required for some of the assembly steps.

Other than that it?s a nice kit and quite easy to build, if you have some experience with resin/multi-media kits.

Greetings

Hauke

Aber nichts, was man mit etwas Geduld nicht richten konnte. Schade das die Plastikmodell Hersteller nicht stärker auf dieses Thema ansprechen.

Dirk Heyer Sadly this fine tank is not available in scale 1:72!!!
An unbelievable circumstance,because it is beside the first Leopard type, one of the worlds best and innovative tanks of the sixties!!
A lot of Braille Scale Modeller waits for a new engineered model in 72!!
And I am one of them!!! :) :)
10. November 2012 at 16:10:59
Duncan Cook Hi Dirk,
I must say the Kit is not bad.
It's not Trumpeter but it's a solid base with some nice details.
Yes it's a shame that this AFV is not aviable in 1:72.
MAybe Trumpeter will change this.
The Kit represents an MK.I, with no Range finder.
I planed to build some MK.s of the Chieftain and the base will be this kit.
And my first question: Is it possible to paint the MK.I in a 2 collour camouflage like the Challenger 2?
10. November 2012 at 17:22:27
Duncan Cook MAybe I will do a small base.
10. November 2012 at 17:24:22
Dirk Heyer Uuuh, difficult question!
Try a question in missing lynx or Armorama!
But I think the Mk.I was only in unique green camo. The 2 colour camo`s that I know are all late types.
10. November 2012 at 17:29:24
Duncan Cook I did some resear.
It seems like all MK.I were in one collor.

Very nice build! Outstanding paint job!
It's a shame that CASTOFF diaappeared of the radar screen. They had nice upgrading sets, for example a nice upper hull for the CVR(T) Scorpion and this nice upper hull for Chieftain correcting the rear engine deck to Mk 5 to Mk 12 configuration!
