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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loved making this kit. My 11 year old son saved up and bought this kits to do over a rainy Easter holiday. The Tamir kits are good value for money and so detailed.Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a nice build. This tank is a nice model to build. The plan and diagram are easy to follow. The tracks are well made and have the added link connectors made larger than you normally get. Overall very impressive once completed and added to my collection.

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.
