i'd get i touch with accurate armour, they did some of the best stuff with the cheiftain 1/35th, they might be willing to send plans and such for you work from. they really helped me with my super-pershing conv. i got from them and i think they may help out a bit, also anyone working in 1/35th on the cheiftain i recommend all cheiftain updates from them. stug

The Chieftan was originally a Tamiya kit in 1/25 scale. #30408 and 30508, one was motorized, the other static. Academy directly copied Tamiya kits in the early days and has since leased or sold the molds to other companies. Looks like Modelcraft may be the current reissuer.

I was wondering if it was possible to R/C a chieftan that modelcraft is supposed to come out with. I would love to have one if it is possible to do so.
