12:00PM Chieftain Assembly Competition
Iron Maiden Launch Week
A few days ago our general manager, John Matthews, was in the UK office checking that everthing was ready for the Iron Maiden launch. While he was there he set the guys a challenge: to see who could assemble a plastic Chieftain the fastest! (We don't recommend this approach with your models - a quick job isn't necessarily always a good job!)
