    Chieftain MBT

    Post  Tancred on Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:28 pm

    IPMS (UK) is pleased to announce that yet another attraction has been added to the impressive line-up already confirmed for Scale ModelWorld 2013. We already have Helicopters, Cars and Science Fiction and now we have armour in the shape of a Chieftain MK10 Stillbrew. The Chieftain MBT was the mainstay of the British Army from the mid-1960s until the early 1990s. The Chieftain was the first true Main Battle Tank and the most powerful tank in the western armies for many years. The Chieftain was revolutionary in many ways most famously for the driver's reclined driving position and the infamous Leyland L60 Multi fuel engine which resulted in the Chieftain gaining a reputation for unreliability. Despite its reliability issues the Chieftain is fondly remembered by all who worked on her. The Chieftain MK 10 attending Scale ModelWorld is owned by Melvin "the tank man" Cordwell and is part of an extensive collection of modern armoured vehicles and tank transporters Melvin has put together in just five years. Melvin is delighted to be attending the show and will be on hand to answer questions and talk about the Chieftain and any of his other vehicles.
