A one-piece main gun would be nice.
By KBrill69 March 12, 2013
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
By edjankowski55 July 10, 2016
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 Build
By Cpfleming1996 September 8, 2016
For my first modern tank build, the Chieftain was easy to assemble and is user friendly. The part that I like the most is the 120 mm barrel shroud.
