Here is the Chieftain 900 utilizing the Airfix Chieftain and the Matador Models KCB-62 conversion kit. It was only ever produced as a prototype private venture and only 2 were built. One resides in the Bovington Tank museum. Here it is completed as though it was taken on by the British Army instead of the Challenger. Completed in the standard army Black/Green camouflage to a Challenger pattern and marked using some left over Challenger decals I had from a previous build. The hazard markings at the rear came from decals from Kingfisher Miniatures:

I like that. I'd not heard of it before so I learnt something too, especially after a google around. A very nice job on it.
