Here is Mengs 1/35th Merkava. I got this 2nd hand and 90% built. Although I have a rule of not buying models that have been started, the construction of this model was very well done.

It has been painted with a mixture of Sovereign Colourcoats, Tamiya and Model Master. Washes by UMP, Flory and Tamiya, as well as Mig pigments used wet with alcohol and Reality in Scale mud to add some texture in built up areas.

Just need to finish of some weathering, and matt coat. This will eventually go onto a base.

I've done some started kits, first step is usually unscrewing all the screw-ups, must be nice when you don't have to do that huh. Looking great Glen.

Hiya,

Yeah this one had no issues at all. I ended up getting a few more started kits from the same bloke.

A little bit of finishing to go with this one and then a base, and should be finished.

The Merkeva is now complete. Although the final matt coat did hide a lot of the pigments I'm still happy with it. Next up is the base. Still cant seem to get the right colour come through on the pics though 20180623_205438[1].jpg 20180623_205449[1].jpg 20180623_205456[1].jpg 20180623_205504[1].jpg 20180623_205516[1].jpg 20180623_205525[1].jpg 20180623_205531[1].jpg 20180623_205538[1].jpg

Cheers Stillblue.

The base has been measured and will go on the machine this week to be cut.

The Merkava wont have its machine guns mounted, as my 10 month old who has just started to crawl decided they would be fun to grab them, squeeze them and smash them together.

Unfortunately it took a few days before the room got crawl proofed an some other models became toys.

Glen
