The Old Chieftain

August 9, 2021 · in Armor · · 10 · 2K

I've been on an armor kick this summer and this Chieftain was the first kit I completed of several started. I used Tamiya paints and AK weathering materials. It was a good out of the box build to start getting some of my armor building skills back.
