Just finished painting the M109 and in the middle of painting the CR1 when I got a Chieftain kit from our local online auction site at my sort of price. So the poor old Chally has been abandoned again as I just could not resist the urge to get stuck in to some nice white styrene.

Hardly scratched the surface (could be a pun there) but its a start;-
Hull armour added, plus trackguard brackets, and redundant holes filled

Raised engine bay using kit item plus a spare.

Commanders cupola part modified. Still have to do some detailing and build a GPMG mount.

Exhaust box, Clansman box, drivers hatch and whatever the panel is on the turret roof aft of the Com cupola!

Rear stowge bins.

NBC pack.

Hope thats of interest.
