Thanks Youngjae for sharing the pictures. It shows the actual Armortek Chieftain build steps in more detail than the prototype build. 8)

Hope your happy with it so far.

We're all waiting to see what the control gears going to look like.

Carry on the great work, but don't forget you may have to dismantle parts of it to get to the RC bit's and bob's in if that's the direction your going in.

Great pictures Youngjae. They are giving me the opportunity to see what I need to put on the rear deck to ensure my stillbrew armour will clear the rear when the turret rotates.....when I get round to it though of course :D :D Keep up the good work; looking forward to seeing the Urban Camo going on!

I am pleased that I have finished assembling the Hullside of No.5 Chieftain provided by Armortek today. I have worked on the rear deck to facilitate disassembly by considering the installation of optional packs. Starting tomorrow, I'm going to assemble turret, and starting this weekend, I'm going to paint the Berlin camouflage slowly. I have prepared two paints with urethane, each numbered RAL7031 and RAL8025. I'm going to paint again based on MALT White before.

I put a turret in the tank body today.
At first, I made it like a manual, set it up, then turned the bolts and turret that secure the wedge rails and leveled the turret at about 20ea of 5mm washers before I realized that the interference would go away and spin very smoothly.

Hi Youngjae
The speed of your build is impressive and it is great to see the first of these Chieftains coming alive before our eyes. My question for you - how are you finding it? Is it going together well or have you had any issues?
Regards
Kevin

First of all, I carefully reviewed the installation manual supplied by Armortek because it is my first time making a tank.
I was looking at the manual and found that there was a small problem, but it wasn't a fear or hesitation in production.
Yesterday, there was interference between turret and bolt,
And I found a solution because I realized interferences by rotating them after being falsified, and then I separated the turret from the under main ring and I found that there was a difference between turret and turret ring, and I thought the quickest solution in the field was to get space using washers, so I used.
These worries and corrections took about two hours yesterday. :mrgreen:

Regards
Youngjae

Thanks Youngjae.
Sounds like good news on the whole then and the tank assembly is proving mostly straightforward.
Keep up the good work

The weather in Korea has entered the winter.
I will work a little today and I will take a rest from now on to handle my company work tomorrow.
