TOPIC: Tamiya Merkava

Tamiya Merkava 08 Apr 2013 02:48 #1

I forgot about this forum topic...

My submission of a post WW2 fully tracked vehicle.
hope it qualifies.

It has been a while that I got bench time. The garage was just too cold to work in and my work schedule pulled me all over the place.
So, updates to follow!

The turret is moving along nicely.
As a side note, I built this kit back in 1986 when it was released. I was stationed in Germany and bought it at a local hobby shop in town. After I finished it I showed my Commander and he took it and placed it in the main 'day room' and wrote a note saying Friend or Foe?
Here it is, all I had was basic paints to use. LOL

It is posed in the company room where we had a sand table which was used for gunnery training

sorry for the delay in updates. Work/chores had me occupied. :blush:

So I painted it up with the base coat. I used SAC Bomber Tan in the rattle can since my airbrush is still on the fritz. :bangs head

Here it is with the base coat, and cleaned up bogie wheels. Next will be the touch ups and details.


Thanks!

What kind of Airbrush, you know Badger has an unconditional warranty on their stuff. Just send it in to them and they will fix it, send it back.
