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 33.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from oldie but good one ok this kit has been around forever but at 20 quid its a good Chieftain and saves alot of time and money over the Takom offering, goes together well , easy rubber band tracks and crew, how many other makers give you crew. the decals are a bit poor but workable with decal sol.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value kit! Having mainly built military aircraft, I decided to try vehicles for a change. This is the second Tamiya military vehicle I’ve bought from Hobbycraft and both were excellent value! This kit in particular is very detailed and goes together very easily. A great kit to get started in the world of military vehicle scale modelling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad at all Went to Hobbycraft Staines and picked up the Tamiya Chieftain 1/35 scale tank. Good quality product and comprehensive instructions. It's worth the price

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good value for money This is an old model dating back to the mid 1970s. To put that in perspective, I was 17 years old when I first built the Chieftain and now I'm 61 so I've just built another one. Its still very nicely moulded, with no flash present and about as accurate as its possible to be. Evidence that this model was originally motorized is still there on the lower hull in the form of screw and switch holes still present. Many Tamiya tanks from this era were sold as motorised but rarely worked as they were supposed to, if at all, so not having this feature is no loss and keeps the cost down. There are no photo etched or resin detail components supplied but then I don't think this model needs any. Newer Tamiya tanks in this scale costs about double or even more. That makes this model good value for the money. Its a good model for the beginner or expert modeller and builds into a fine model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic model kit I was really surprised with this kit, it is well detailed and looks great when it's all put together. The instructions are simple and clear to follow, I jumped into the deep end buying this kit as a beginner, but felt comfortable assembling it. Will definitely be buying more of these in the future
