1/35 Accurate Armour Conversion Chieftain ARV MK5

Recommended Posts

Accurate armour MK5 resin conversion
Tamiya Chieftain base model (lower hull and wheels etc only)
1/35
Masterclub metal tracks with worn blocks.
Tamiya paints
Mr Hobby metallics
AK enamel washes
Oil washes
AK (and Flory) pigments

I do like Accurate Armour stuff. They can be a bit rough and tough, but they do look nice when done. 
I got fed up with this half way through, but came back to it about a year later and thoroughly enjoyed finishing it.

Thats why in the album on flickr, along with these pics (and more) in full res, there are build pics that stop half way through. they may interest some, but i couldn't be bothered to start a build thread again after a year break. 
The model will eventually end up on the bed of a Tasker semi trailer as shown, so the front two axles are in compression.

Lovely job. Just the right amount of dirt to make it look real.

Excellent model, a very realistic representation of the real thing and probably some of the best weathering I've seen - just enough restrained grime, wear and tear to make it look like a working wagon.

Terrific build, the worn track pads are inspired 🙂

thanks Ivan

No. its going to be mounted on the AA tasker 50T semi-trailer pulled by the AA Antar MK2, as I found pics of it on a Tasker but not the Commander.

i have a Chieftain Mk11 conversion and an ARV MK7 conversion  which i may mount on a commander (probably the MK11). possibly in about 6 years time at the speed i build things:raincloud:

I do not know this vehicle in depth, but your rendition of the model is superb, it seems as real as the real model is.
I love the combination of tones, it's as "sinister" as the "Chieftains" should look.:goodjob:

Cheers mate 👍

Amazing.  Like everyone said this is one of the best ever on this site. The detail, paint, and especially the weathering are

just awesome and the posing and photography are first rate.

 

Looks like you just drove it away from some depot, do you suppose they will miss it?

 

Take care,

 

Lloyd

Could I ask you where you got the driver from? Picked up a Takom Chieftain today & need some crew for it.

Actually it's an utterly brilliant rendition of a less than than charismatic but vital working vehicle. 

Superb.

Superb.  Reminds me of my youth down at the Slab Common near Bordon.
