Takom Chieftain MK10 first look

Recommended Posts

Clayton's doing the Mk.10. I've just finished writing up the in-box review for the Mk.5 which should be up on Modelling News in the next few days. They really are very nice kits. You get options for the Berlin camo with both the Mk.5 and 10 which is nice, otherwise the 5 is mainly made up of Iranian options.

Now that's annoying as I fancied doing a plain green british Mk5 ...

You do get a BATUS scheme in sand/green camo and, at a push, I guess you could leave off the exercise id decals and paint it in regular camo. I'm sure someone like star decals will produce something suitable too.

Thanx for the info Andy, that's what I'll probaby end up doing. Don't fancy shelling out more dosh for the decals on, what is already, a kit that breaks my spending limit...

I have the MK11, on its way from Lucky model.

I'll be interested in seeing what marking options come with that one as I haven't seen any info on it yet.

The Mk.5/5P in-box is up on Modelling News now. I'm hoping to get started on it next week.

The Mk 11 has 5 different marking options, 3 Batus and two BAOR One is plain green the other (1RTR) is green and black. The decal sheet includes both union jacks and scottish flags if you want to use them, the 1 RTR BAOR scheme should have a union flag on the left front mudguard. No Chinese eyes as they hadn't yet amalgamated with 4 RTR.

The kit builds beautifully and is very detailed as fore the lower hull as far as Im concerned the lower hull shape is correct.

As for the Meng kit well looks like they suddenly decided to bring it out to spoil Takoms sales no love lots between the two companies they had the info they needed to produce one in 2012 and did nothing.
