Hi guys!

 

This thread is going to be a build thread for my 1/35 scale Tamiya Chieftain Main Battle Tank. I have been building it for a bit but not too long, so you get to see all the details and interesting bits :P


 

The tank at it's most complete stage so far

Thanks

 

Didn't get any progress done at the weekend, world of tanks happened :confused: so I might do some more on Monday and probably post on Tuesday.


 

Also btw, anyone got any ideas for a paint scheme? I'm think a dark green, light green, brown and black in the camo pattrens you normally see. What do ya think guys?

Next update. MAJOR!!!!

Track skirts are complete :great:

And mounted with upper hull mounted too

Now. This is where I done goofed. I put the upper hull on, and skirts. The more observant of you would have noticed that I haven't put the tracks on. OOPS!:facepalm:


 

Don't worry though, I got this. threaded the track through the top of the wheels and hey presto!

I started painting the tank last night, was a big decision. I decided to do a wild scheme of brown, black and green.

And here it is in all its uncompleted glory;)

I am goin to add another colour, like a beige-ish dark sandy colour. what do you think? I think it's damn amazing, but, I'm obviously bias :rolleyes::P

This is really cool and the first one I have put this much detail into. I hope to be doing another one, I'm not sure yet, but we'll see.

Why gloss colours?

The reason I used gloss colours as is to do matte it is a little bit harder to mix the colours and I would have had a lot less time to actually paint on the colours, as I'm sure you know matte dries a lot quicker.


 

I have done a mini photoshoot with them, and that may be up, soon
