This is an old model dating back to the mid 1970s. To put that in perspective, I was 17 years old when I first built the Chieftain and now I'm 61 so I've just built another one. Its still very nicely moulded, with no flash present and about as accurate as its possible to be. Evidence that this model was originally motorized is still there on the lower hull in the form of screw and switch holes still present. Many Tamiya tanks from this era were sold as motorised but rarely worked as they were supposed to, if at all, so not having this feature is no loss and keeps the cost down. There are no photo etched or resin detail components supplied but then I don't think this model needs any. Newer Tamiya tanks in this scale costs about double or even more. That makes this model good value for the money. Its a good model for the beginner or expert modeller and builds into a fine model.

Our Peak period starts October and finishes at the end of December. During this time, your parcel may take 2-3 Business Days.

Australia Post eParcel service delivers Australia wide. If you choose to change the delivery to safe drop, Toys Bendigo takes no responsibility for lost or stolen parcels. Deliveries in Australia are to be made to physical addresses or PO Boxes where possible. If delivery is unable to be completed at the nominated address, parcel will be returned to an Australia Post Office or other depot for collection.

Some larger items may be sent in the original carton that may picture or describe the item enclosed. Please be mindful of this if delivery is to be received by someone other than yourself. As we are a Bricks and Mortar store that sells to walk in customers, some items may be price marked with the retail price ticket.
