HobbyBoss 1/ 35 scale Merkava Mk.IV
Based on my references, this model kit represents the Merkava Mk.IV well except for the suspension.
August 5, 2011
|HobbyBoss has added an Israeli Merkava Mk.IV to its line of modern main battle tanks. The kit is molded in dark yellow styrene, with the headlight lenses and vision blocks molded in clear styrene. Two frets totaling 96 photoetched-metal parts, plus vinyl tires and poly caps for the road wheels, are included, along with a length of chain and brass beads for the chain armor Merkavas carry on their bustles. The upper hull and turret halves also have very convincing anti-slip coating molded on the upper surfaces.|
