Paul Badman’s Tamiya Merkava Mk 1

0
Paul Badman took a  Tamiya Merkava Mk 1, added Def Model single link tracks, scratched the MG mounts and vehicle mounting aid on the hull front, added  stowage  from the spares box and came up with this beauty.
The Merkava Mk 1 in this pre 1982 configuration, is the only version you can build without the anti slip and ball and chain armour.
Main colour is TC19 IDF Gray Sinai 1981 from the Mr Color Israeli set. Paul notes that they are

advertised as acrylics, but in fact appear to be lacquer paints (and smell a tad strong when sprayed!)
