Freightdog Models

After several years out of production, I have now passed the masters for my 1/72 resin BAe EAP to Combat Kits. Casting is in progress so kit should be available again hopefully during November. More news to follow when everything is ready.

I have two of the M1128 MGS kits and my intention is to use one of the MGS turrets on a tracked vehicle hull.  Not sure which at this point as I had considered the M551 Sheridan hull but that soon fell out of favour as I realized it was just not up to the task.


Have you seen this sci fi Merkava? It has a similar setup to the MGS.

I am doing a what if Merkava myself with the Academy 1/35 Mk.III. I was inspired by this artwork. The artwork shows a Mk.II though but I didn't have a Mk.II so I used the Mk.III instead. I switched out the 120mm main gun to an ESCI 105mm main gun from a Blazer kit. The ERA blocks were also from the same ESCI Blazer kit. I got them as spares from someone who had a trashed kit. This is as far as I got. Still a long way to go but I am also still thinking of what else I can add to it. I had the TUSK I side skirt armor from a trashed M1A2 I was going to add to the side skirts of this Merkava but I accidentally threw away most of the TUSK I parts when I was cleaning up. I will have to figure out what else I can use instead.

A slightly better solution may be the Merkava, engine forward & large rear access for getting at the mechanicals & loading ammunition.


Returning to Ramba's builds: I'm looking forward to what is to come, the M1128 included. :smiley:


I really should crack on with some armour builds of my own, I've been a bit slack in that field lately. :-[

Thanks!

I am definitely looking forward to more of your armor builds. Your Ukrainian BRDM-2 and LAV-150 TOW looked awesome!

I have been out of town for some days, but I am now back at the workbench.
The Skywarrior engines have been cut to form. The plastic of the old Revell kit was horrible - hard, vere brittle and broke to pieces at the sligtest provocation. But with the help of a lot of "sejd" (old nordic witchcraft) I made it.
