FV4201 Chieftain Main Battle Tank

FV4201 Chieftain Main Battle Tank Book Review

By David L. Veres

Date of Review November 2019 Title FV4201 Chieftain Main Battle Tank
Author Dariusz Karnas, Richard Kent Publisher Mushroom Model Publications
Published 2019 ISBN 9788365958662
Format 24 pages, softbound MSRP (GBP) £9.00


MMP commences its new “Tank Plans” range with a group of fold-out drawings to 1/35, 1/48, 1/72, and 1/76 scales of Britain’s FV4201 Chieftain Main Battle Tank.

Variants illustrated include the Chieftain Mk. 2, Mk. 5, Mk. 11, and Iraq’s Shir – the last captured from Iran.

The compact, convenient, 24-page softback is great for easy workbench reference. And it’s economical enough that spilled or smudged paint won’t trigger a ton of expletives!

With thanks to MMP for the review copy.
