The ARV prototypes (it never went into production) are based on the Namer prototypes, which were based on the Merkava III, the Namer production vehicles are based on the Merkava IV.

What I've read indicates that there are some differences in hull shape & size, & it uses a different engine but I don't know how visible these might be, especially compared to the late-model Merkava IIID's.

^ Merkava hull with M48 turret.  How about an M48 with a Merkava turret? 

Really would like to see a 1:35th scale Namer some time soon...

Almost what you say: M60 and Merkava (same scale)

I thought Legend Productions released both a conversion and a full kit?

I suppose it will happen just as soon as Greg purchases the resin kit of the Namer.  Come on Greg!  You can do it!  :)

Now if the Merkava hull has enough clearance around the turret ring for the Sabra II/III turret armour package or vice-versa......

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?
