Hi all,

Post by Charles A Stewart » Sun Oct 06, 2019 8:47 pm

I am hopefully to receive my Chieftian kit in a few days time.

I am new to this level of modelling but look forward to it. I just wondered if there is any like minded folk in the Cumbria area?

Cheers Charles

Any particular reason for going for the Chieftain rather than one of the other models ?

In reply to your enquiry Mark, I just missed out on armotek tiger(late). I opted for King Tiger (deposit paid).

Up comes Chieftian, went on reserve list, one became available so here I am. I am looking at these projects as a retirement issue and investment.

Although not army I am ex RAF, cold war era. Always had a fascination about armour modelling.

Hope that's ok 😊

Hello Charles
Great to see new owners joining the more established tank nuts.
I am waiting on a Chieftain myself and having seen the prototype can say that it’s a beast.
Armortek owners up north are fairly thin on the ground but 2 names that do spring to mind are Paul Morris (Paul’s tank workshop) and Paul Willis, both are in Cumbria. I live just south of Manchester and therefore not to far away from you.
Regards
Steve

Hello Manny, Charles, Andy and Paul
I have a Chieftain on order and should be receiving it in the near future. I live near Stockport south of Manchester so am the fourth Chieftain owner in the North West. Hopefully we can have a get together sometime in the future.
Regards
Steve

It certainly sounds like plan.

Can this thread be linked to the chieftian's main sort of forum?

I don't have a clue how it could be done.But I hope it is a reasonable suggestion.

Cheers Charles
