Takom Merkava MK 1 Hybrid

Here's a quickie as an aside from that Trumpeter 1/16 Panzer IV.  

 

The IDF lineup so far, Merkava, Achzarit and Gal Batash.  Need bigger display cabinets.

The lighting isn't that great inside the display cabinet.  I've since taken the Achzarit out and gave it a dusting of some of that fine ground dirt to lighten it up some, looks better now.

 

Thanks again Francis.

Here is the terrible trio with different lighting.  They are all painted with the same Tamiya mix from the same bottle.

Quite a difference in shades, maybe the Merkava needs a dark wash? Or maybe it's not as dirty being newer.

Brilliant (and speedy) result with the Merkava Lloyd and three of them together look superb! Very well done. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Kind regards,

Thanks Stix

 

You didn't tell me if the Merkava should be darker though.
