Chieftain No5 has been assembled.
I'm going to wrap up my pure white finish and start putting on the Berlin camouflage next week.

What a super model you've built, looking forward to seeing the Berlin Camo Job. 8)

I think you need a bigger table though. :shock:

My, that's a Big Gun.

I think so, too. :wink:
When painting, remove the main gun from the body.
I am going to paint by referring to the picture below.

Hi Youngjae,

I've had a quick look at the drawing you've provided and there are some slight differences between that drawing (the side views) and the actual pictures I have of real Berlin Camo Chieftains. The pattern itself is made up of squares whether that be a single coloured square or two squares of the same colour joined together. I think it would help you significantly if you can find some pictures of tanks in actual service with the British Army either from the internet or from the Tankograd book mentioned in the Chieftain References thread. If I was you, I would treat any picture that doesn't have a real soldier either in the tank or by it, with suspicion as to its authenticity and accuracy. Try this link and compare it to your drawing; There are at least two differences there:

Hope this helps!

I'll refer to it before painting. :D
I think it will be very helpful.
Thank you.
