|Long Review:||The first impression on opening the box was that the box was incredibly heavy. Not surprising, since the entire kit is white metal, instead of a resin hull and other bits with white metal accessories.
This particular kit allows you to build either a Mk VI b or Mk VI c, by replacing the commander's hatch and the weapon assembly.
The track units are identical, with loose suspension units to attach to the exterior of the wheels.
The hull features seperate components too- a toolbox and the exhaust.
The turret, though, is where the kit begins to show the different variants. There are two mantlets with different weapons, two versions of the commander's hatch, smoke-launchers and two versions of extraction units.
There are no instructions included in the kit, but they are available for download from the Chieftain Models website. They take the form of what appears to be about a page of clear drawings and instructions.
|Commentary:||Ian's had a rough start with Chieftain Models, caused by a number of factors outside his control. As the vehicles has completed are extremely well-done and presented at affordable prices (as well as covering a neglected period), I hope that he will now continue to expand the range.|
|Historical Accuracy:||Very Good.|
