Product description

This Tamiya British Chieftain Mk. 5 Tank Model Kit is a fantastic premium quality 1:35 scale plastic model kit. Highly detailed, this is an armoured tank vehicle used by the British.

First announced in 1970, the Mk. 5 was the main type of Mk. in service in the mid-1970s. Further engine modifications brought the power output up to 750 bph, with consequent improvement in overall performance. Soon, revision of the ammunition stowage arrangements enabled 64 rounds to be stowed. Splash plates were added on the glacis as well.

This model can be built using the simple step-by-step instructions.

Please note that paint and glue are not included in the kit.

  • Size: 21.6 x 35.6 x 5.7 cm (8.5 x 14 x 2.2 inches)
  • 1:35 scale
  • Plastic model kit requires assembly and optional painting
  • Suitable for ages 10 and over
  • Glue, paint and modelling tools not included

Tamiya British Chieftain Mk. 5 Tank Model Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tamiya 1/35 Cheiftan Tank. Model kit. This kit is excellent. It is quite large. Superbly detailed and easy to assemble, even for a novice or youngster. I have a few Tamiya Armour models and this one now takes pride of place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great model to build A great model to build, ideal for beginners and experienced builders, all the parts are highly detailed and easily assembled, my only issue with the kit is it doesn't list the paint needed on the outside of the box

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old but gold value for money kit simple quick build time. This is one of Tamiya's old kits but still the moulds are sharp. Quick build time, not the most accurate in detail but represents excellent value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value model Highly recommend the chieftain, it's quite an old model now but goes together very nicely. Lots of detail on the tank, a nice set of rubber tracks that use the melting method to fix them. Painted up well with tamiya paint, really pleased with the finished tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent kit Excellent kit, i bought this kit along with a couple other for a project, it's been a few years since I built any model kit and this was a nice one to get back into. All parts fitted together nicely with excellent options and detail. Even the rubber tracks worked well with the moving road wheels. I would recommend this and any of the Tamiya kits to anyone.
