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:

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.

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
