Looking good! What did you use to texturize the upper hull?

merkava 1

looks good. lesons learned when doing this kit ... anti skid came in 1983 and the aduard pe kit dipics a vehical at the laturin armour museum in isreal My contact to the museum curator verifide some things are not as the disply would have you think the intake screens are mk 1 hybread and would only be seen on mk 1s after the 82 invation that went through the rebuild prosses so my merk also falls into that catigory even though I was hoping for 82 dipiction
very nice merkava 1 indeed

I love this tank. It's the most beautiful military vehicle next to JagdPanther and Stridsvagn 103. Non-slip surfaces look nice.

Hello,

Thanks for the comments..

I used Mr Surfacer 500 for upper hull texture.





Best regards.

Özgür.

Nice work Özgür. How is the Tamiya kit OOB? I've been thinking of getting this kit myself and also tossing a set of Friuls at it, as it looks like a relatively straightforward build and can be picked up quite cheaply (also my Merk IV is currently stalled due to ball-and-chain issues!).

Thanks guys.

Steve, Tamiya kit is an old good one. Need only a few touches. And yes, to build it easy and fast. An early MK I without Ball-Chain make it more faster.

Grüße aus Bayern.
