An Israeli Merkava tank links up with Israeli Paratroopers on a lane in the Golan Heights:

Not a bad kit. I'm building one at the moment & it's going together quite well.

Mine will, however, be whiffed. ;)


Like what you've done here. :smiley:

Very pleased with the kit - fitted well with minor problems - the PE also quite good.

My only issue - there are two figures included - the Tank Commander and an Infantryman.

However, the instructions don't tell you how to leave the hatch open - I'd followed them and actually closed the hatch - then had to pry it open...............................

There's also an error in the instructions when building the commander's hatch (Sub-Assembly "L" in Step 7); Part B23 is shown the wrong way around, the small hole shown should be on the other side. The trick, however, is not to glue part B8 [anywhere] & to just glue parts [B21+B23] & B22 to the hull top. This allows the hatch to move freely. :smiley:

Doesn't help with the "J" sub-assemblies (spring bars), though. :icon_crap:
