"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.

"Well Liked Kit and Can Easily See Why"
smiffy93
Another Tamiya nice-priced kit and easily considered an easy build. Personalized paint scheme but somehow results didn't stand out. Goes together well with some very minor difficulty, never a fan of crafting my own antenna's. Still I WILL return to this kit as the perfect subject for learning 'aging' and adding realistic effects like dirt/mud and other traces of authenticity.

 
"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.
