Does anyone know if anybody has plans to release or has released the Trophey system for the Merkava4. Just starting to look at my next project as 1/2 way through my diorama and was wondering. Legand's nor blackdog have anything up.

Cheers

I have seen Voyager photoetch planning on releasing an item that could fit your needs; albeit they refer to the post mount as "Windbreaker" Active Protection System. The link is:

I am not sure whether the item has been released or whether it follows the typical complexity of Voyager items (e.g., photoetch T-80 reactive blocks or LVTP tracks).

There was a Harper casting available once....

I think he's referring to the Trophy Active Protective System, seen here:



I haven't heard of anything yet, but I'm sure sooner or later someone will do it.

'Windbreaker' ADS was renamed 'Trophy' ADS when they realised what it meant in English! As well as Merkava 4M it should have been fitted on Merkava 3 (to make Merkava 3M by now).
