Takom Merkava Mk1 Hybrid

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

After a very long while I re-started building seriously (as in "spending more time", not "professional quality" ;) )

 

Here are a couple of shots of my recently completed Merkava mk1 hybrid (Takom 1/35) with crew (Walkyrie 1980's IDF crew). Beautiful kit, fastest build ever for me (about 2 weeks end to finish). WIP can be found here

 

Main adds to the kit, again not much as it's a great kit:

  • Antiskid done with diluted PVA glue spread with a brush and covered with embossing powder
  • Basket contents from various sets (Tamiya, Legend and Plus Model I believe, they have been out of their original boxes for a long time)
  • Tarp and ID panels done in white milliput
  • Rear hull baskets completed with aluminium strips

Thanks guys, glad you like it! The kit was so nice I bought another one (the initial version this time) for a Lebanon diorama :)

 

Cheers,
