The Big Chief

One of my favourite British Tank models, is without a doubt, my Chieftan Mk5 M.B.T. In its time, this was the most powerfull tank in the world, with its L5 120mm Rifled Gun and thick armour. This was the first model I 'weathered' by dry brushing mud splashes along the sides and on its wheels. I love the look of this model, it looks big and heavy just like the real thing was! I also think this was the first model I used electronic wire to make the aerials with. It is also the most difficult to clean thanks to all the details on the turret and stowage bins on the hull! Other than that, there's not really much else I can say about this model. Oh yes, apart from this; never use toilet tissue to clean the dust off a model, bits of tissue paper can get caught in engine grills and are a bitch to remove afterwards!!
