Excellent builds.  I've always been awed by that scheme and seeing the work here has increased my awe.

Very nice Chiefie Dangerbod- hopefully soon to have added part 87.
Here is a different take on the Airfix Chieftain- the MkI AVRE with the mine plough and AVRE trailer carrying a pipe fascine.

There is a good chance that part 87 will get glued into position this very evening Stu, so thank you for sending it so quickly.
That AVRE is a beast, I'm always blown away by the quality of your conversions and scratch builds and the speed with which you knock them out. This is another stunner! :thumb:

Here's my Chieftain in the standard Black and gray-green. I hand painted it with Humbrol enamels.

My build of the Airfix Chieftain. This machine was based at Bovington but didn't have a thermal sleeve and was painted sand. Unfortunately the decals self-destructed when put in water and so I've had to do without:

Here's my second attempt at this kit with the Matador Models Conversion kit to make it into a MarkIII:

Added some front 'mudflaps' from aluminium foil and the light lenses came from some gem stones sourced from Ebay usually used on clothing!
