  1. Dear comrades... This is my first AFV model after a lot of aircrafts , I really enjoyed with the heavy weathering process. In that case, this is the awesome Takom 1/35 model kit, with MasterClub metal tracks. This is my second attempt to build a Merkava, the first one was in 2000 with a poor Trumpeter kit when I was a teenager that was abandoned by me after several frustrations . Here is a full Flickr album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmRtfzCx
  2. Hi all, need help from those who have done the anti-slip surface for their tanks. I have a Hobby Boss 1/72 Merkava IV and would like to do the anti-slip surface as the Spanish master modeller Juan Carlos Carmona has done in the below vid for a 1/35 Meng kit. Would it be viable for a 1/72? I am afraid the rivet and details might get covered. Any advice, personal recommendations, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! https://www.scalemates.com/kits/hobbyboss-82915-merkava-mk-iv--1012701 https://youtu.be/DVH-NUn8IY8
  3. After the bombing of the Air Force, the Israeli army immediately entered Lebanon. A new Merkava tank was parked on a small basketball court. The tank crews chatted in the shadow of the tank and waited for the next order. After a while, two children came, and the red boy pointed at the basketball stand and yelled at the tank crew: "This is our basketball court!!!” The little boy behind him clung to his "weapons" - an steel stick, trying to show a strong look. The older soldiers were not worried about this. He was still sweating with a handkerchief, while the other was curiously wa
  4. Hi Pals, I finally finished the recovery / update Tamiya Merkava. I liked (modestly) it was finally enough. And it is that a aerbrush is essential to achieve good results, without forgetting the brush of course. I have some material in 30 years, which can also be improved, and seen how was this encourages me to try yet. Link to WIP below http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234998843-the-lion-of-the-desert-merkava-mki/ Thank you for watch and comment, cheers mates
  5. Evening, so here is my build of the isreali MBT Merkava Mk.III. The Merkava is the a series of israeli MBT developed since 1973. The first Model MK.I was introduced in the IDF 1978. The current version is the Mk.IV being intriduced in 2003. All variants have in common that the engine was moved to the front to add more protection againts RPGs inlike most other modern MBT where it's in the rear, and due to the space in the rear through the missing engine, was used to add an rear compartment so that the tank can transport infantry, ammunition, a stretcher ("tankbulance"), or goods like e.g.
  6. Merkava IIID LIC Late 1:35 Meng Models The Merkava "chariot" is a main battle tank used by the Israel Defence Forces. The tank began development in 1973 and entered official service in 1978. Four main variants of the tank have been deployed. It was first used extensively in the 1982 Lebanon War. The name "Merkava" was derived from the IDF's initial development program name. Design criteria include rapid repair of battle damage, survivability, cost-effectiveness and off-road performance. Following the model of contemporary self-propelled howitzers, the turret assembly is located close
  7. Hi mates, this time, the WIP I propose is a little different, because this is a model that i do about 30 years ago. I have recently been doing cleaning and I found a couple of boxes with the surviving models of my adolescence. Although it has long seemed they were very good (modestly), now, are the opposite. Therefore, I estimate that only about 4 or 5 models will be able to "upgrade". One of them is the venerable MERKAVA MK1 of the Tamiya brand, a classic in my opinion. The original model is painted with Enamels and brush, all processes, because at that time no acrylics, much less
  8. IDF Merkava IV LIC etch sets Eduard1:35 for Academy The LIC versions of the Mark IV tank are converted for urban warfare. The LIC designation stands for Low Intensity Conflict, underlining its emphasis on counter-insurgency, street-to-street inner-city asymmetrical type warfare of the 21st century. The Merkava is equipped with a turret 12.7 mm calibre coaxial machine gun which enables the crew to lay down fairly heavy cover fire without the use of the main gun, which is relatively ineffective against individual enemy combatants. Like the new remote-operated weapon station, the coaxial
  9. IDF Merkava Mk IIID Eduard 1:35 It always seems to be a busy schedule at Eduard with several releases every month this month being no different. The Hobbyboss Merkava IIID seems to have been well received and comes well detailed out of the box. But for those modellers who really need to have an ultra detailed model these three new sets will be just the ticket. Merkava IIID main set (36235) This two sheet set contains all the fine detail parts for the tank itself. These include lots of small items such as new grab handles, brackets, reinforcing strips, and tool brackets. In addition to
