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:

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.

The other day, the connection to my left basket in Chieftain broke two while making it. :shock:
I prepared a home arc welding machine yesterday and welded this part. 8)
The small welds have been difficult to attach and will now be ready for the next paint job.
I'm going on a business trip this week and I'm going to resume work this coming weekend.

I worked on painting my NO.5 today. :D
The paint job has a lot to check and it's also a matter of momentary masking, but it's a lot of fun. :mrgreen:

I replaced the existing wheel color with Satin Black from NATO Green today.
And there's been some progress in painting.

It's an honor for you to praise me.
It's my first time to create a Model tank, but I'm happy to share my progress.

Thank you, and have a nice day.~~ :mrgreen:

I can't get the exact data, but I'm looking forward to a quick completion through a little omission. 8)
