1/35 Takom Chieftain Mk.11 Main Battle Tank
This is the 1st Takom model I have built and was excited to give it a go. At the time of purchase it was a brand new release for them. I think they have covered most of the versions of this legendary war machine. Overall I was impressed with the engineering, fit, and detail of the kit. The instructions were clear, and concise with good build images. It built up in a reasonable amount of time. I used Blu-Tak sticky putty to mask off the camo patterns. It is painted using acrylics type paints to include Vallejo, and Mig/AMMO. Oils and Enamel washes highlighted details and filtered the base colors. Chipping was done with the sponge method mostly. A final Testors Flat Varnish was sprayed from the can to seal and blend the overall finish. Feedback is welcomes and I hope you enjoy the pictures.
