Chieftain Mk11 Stillbrew

Used to get these from the Canex in the UNPA. Not brilliant but cheap as chips.

Splash plate

Dvrs hatch locking bar

And decided to get the hull together…

Will try and get this primed along with the wheels this weekend… Few more bits to do on the hull then I may see how the tracks go together then start on the turret …

Rear hull plate and back bins on.

All the very fragile PE & lenses will be left off until painting time.

J- PE work is nuts. You’re a much braver man than I. And just for fun, I used to drive a truck in the tri-state area of the lower mid-west (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky) and would get occasional runs into St Louis MO, where I would buy up cases of Coors, boogie back to Illinois and sell them to my college buddies. Does that mean I was a boot-legger?
Now I’m into cheap French wines and Texas whiskies. Hmmm…

We get it here in Australia. We also get the Bulmers Irish Cider under the label Magner’s, which they do everywhere but Eire due to naming rights.
