"A one-piece main gun would be nice."
KBrill69
I've been working on this kit in small doses for a quite a long time. With a few very minor exceptions, such as the not quite exact fit and the amount of flash on some parts that I don't remember Tamiya having in the past, this has been a very enjoyable kit to build. UNTIL....however, I got to the main armament. And although this seems to be an industry standard, I can't help but wonder why the manufacturers of armor models don't do one-piece molds for the main gun on tanks. With this kit, the somewhat iffy fit and line-up on the 2 halves of the gun make for a lot of time-consuming filling and sanding. I feel that a 1-piece main gun would eliminate these problems, and it doesn't seem that there is anything gained by doing it in halves. Still and all, despite this annoying issue, the kit is overall a decent build that is going to turn out a nice looking finished product. As for the gun issue? I'm considering using some lichen or model railroad tree material to drape over the cannon, a la some pictures of modern German armor that I have seen. Enjoy the build!

"Great Model at a Great Price"
edjankowski55 (Meriden Ct.)
I mostly build military armor and Tamiya kits are my favorite . Although this is one there older kits it is still a nice build with minimal flash and pieces that fit together well. The track is the one piece variety which I prefer over the individual piece track that take forever to assemble . Like another reviewer wrote the barrel for main gun needed to be finnesed ( glue it, clamp it, file down the seams, and 2 coats paint ) and it will look good . All in all this was a really fun model to build, very reasonably priced, and a great addition to my cooection.

 
"Excellent tool and die makers"

All parts fit very well - no surprises with this kit. Very happy with the outcome and would recommend thid model to all skill levels. May build this one again!

 
"Tamiya value"
Nucleartestrabbit
This is an older tamiya kit and so has the holes from when they mounted motors that have to be putties. I did notice a few places where there were small gaps between the pieces where I couldn't quite get them to bond even after several attempts but they are hard to notice with the hatches down. I did have to sculpt my own mantlet cover for the gun but that wasn't terribly hard. In the end it's a fun and easy to build kit and at around 20.00 great quality at a great value as is the case with most tamiya products. Sure it has it's shortcomings that are typical of older tamiya kits but it accomplishes what it's supposed to which is represent the chieftain.
