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 🙃.

I like it a LOT.

 

Modern vehicles is not my thing, but I have a soft spot for Merkava tanks.

Yours is superbly done. Worn, weathered and dusty look is very natural.

Excellent work. The Merkava always looks very purposeful n my view & you’ve captured it perfectly.

Excellent work David, and very nicely presented.

What did you use for the anti slip coating?

That's a classy looking model. I like the way that it's been weathered......not OTT.

This is fantastic.

If I may ask, how did you get the lovely looking dust effect on the weathering?

Hi Mippie

In that case I applied the pigments on desired areas with a brush like a wash (pigment mixed with VMS Universal Weathering Carrier), when it dries, remove the excess with a cotton swab, and when everything is ok, I've applied a Pigment Fixer of Ammo
 

Best regards
