Oh my! "Realistic 'CHAIN CURTAIN' of white matal included" false statement on box (it is there, but in plastic and a bit simple). How many permutations of 'parts in the box' has this kit been through?

The only difference from #07103 is a whole new turret mould piece with altered forward roof details, and a different gun barrel to fit this. All other parts (including the decal sheet) remain the same.

Kevin A I'm sure I've done something wrong here. When dryfitted the teeth of the sprocket wheel are touching the upper hull. Not sure how I'll glue it together once I have the tracks fitted.
10. April 2015, 11:13
Kevin A The turret went together better than expected. Only one ball broken on the ball and chain armour. The rope I managed to put on slightly crooked and the telescopic antenna did not fit flush wit the turret but nothing I'm not well practiced at hiding :)
10. April 2015, 11:21
Kevin A This was my first time using link and length tracks. I can't say it was fun, but was glad to see they fitted perfectly. In fact, the whole kit was a pretty good fit, even the rear baskets which were not as tricky as I thought they would be.
1. May 2015, 10:42
Kevin A 5-6 coats of Life Color Israeli Sand Grey and it still looks patchy :( That's enough of that, I'm hoping washes and filters will get it looking a bit better. Failing that, my go to technique for hiding shoddy work ...... extra weathering :P
17. May 2015, 15:56
Łukasz Gliński So far, so good, waiting to see the weathering :)
17. May 2015, 19:42
Francisco Abad I like how it is becoming.
18. May 2015, 12:31
Kevin A A few washes done, next is some highlights. This Sand Grey colour is strange to my eyes. Not sure if it's green or brown...I think some experimentation will be needed to choose a good colour for highlights.
22. May 2015, 12:42
Kevin A Almost done. Next step is adding some weathering. Too late now, but I'm still not sure about this colour. Photos I have seen the paint looks greener.
17. June 2015, 11:06
Kevin A Some (not very good) pics of the finished model. It was an enjoyable build, although the paint I used - Lifecolor Israel Sand Grey 1982 - was a bit of a challenge. Maybe it's best used with an airbrush rather than hand.

Frank Krause Thanks for the hint, Murad. I've got it in my stash and will try it.
9. January 2015, 21:15
Urban Gardini Lifecolor is not difficult to brush paint.
9. January 2015, 22:16
Urban Gardini It just need a primed surface.
9. January 2015, 22:16
Heico van der Heide The Humbrol 84 is indeed what is mentioned as right for IDF on the IDF forum, but i have never tried it. The Lifecolor is one of my favorites. I also like this mix by Tamiya: one part XF- 20, one part XF- 57, one part XF- 27 and one part XF- 49.
9. January 2015, 22:52
Murad ÖZER israel is a big enough country to experience vast differences in climate and geography, hence the same color weathering differently depending on the territory. which is a good thing for it leaves a lot of leeway to us when determining the shade... :)

Urban Gardini Congrats to a nice kit. A word of advice is to get hold of after market decals for it as the kit ones is more rubbish than the bad tracks in the kit. The rubberband tracks is acceptable but not good. I've got a build album here at SCM with this kit that could be of assistance if you like.
25. September 2014, 07:25
Calvin Gifford Thank you for that heads up!
25. September 2014, 08:47
Mohammad Adl Hi Calvin. I agree with Urban. So i used the Urban album when i had work. This is very nice.
You can see my merkava in to my album If you like, :)

Umbráculo Oh, wonderful kit (Merkava) along with a wonderful company (Meng). Combined with your skills it will lead to an amazing project, I'm sure. Go ahead and show more pictures!

Is anyone aware of anyone making aftermarket add-on armour for the turret sides? The bits that make the turret look flying-saucer-ish? Otherwise I'm contemplating trying to scratch-build something.

Urban Gardini Good work on a bad kit! I've built it myself n' didn't like the kit at all but it's possible to get a good result with it anyway.
17. January 2014, 18:15
Giuliano Gagliardi Hello, thanks for the comment.

I'm still newbie, do not know much about the kits
17. January 2014, 18:17
Urban Gardini You're doin' great for a newbie, wouldn't have guessed it mate. Just keep doin' what you do n' it'll be perfect in the future. I've got a lot of photos from my build of this baddie in my profile if you're interested.

Urban Gardini Thanks Sherif, the Tiger II will prove an laid back build without any struggle n' the OEZ will demand a bit more concentration on your behalf. So you'll be able to build the Tiger II while you decide to build the Sukhoi 7 or not.

Augie, then what's the problem? Just grab a fresh #11, do mind what end of it that you crab n' start cuttin' styrene n' you'll be done in a jiffy...
26. May 2012, 22:52
Augie Ha, your quite right urban, just call it nerves.. been looking forward to it :)
26. May 2012, 23:03
Sherif Sharmy You know that I have so many kits...........I used to order many from Hannants ( my favourite shop ) and when I travelled during the 80s and 90s. So, i am bloody confused because all are gems........just look at the mighty yamato in 1/350 by tamiya, the or the Nimitz by monogram, the tornado by revell in 1/32 and many more. We always keep buying kits but never gave it a thought if we live long enough to build `em and if we have the space to put `em. Even in 1/72 scale it is still a problem. Not considering the decals, tins of paint, compressor, airbrush, tools brushes, references, pictured and much more....................am i nuts? I think so.
26. May 2012, 23:58
Urban Gardini Of course you're nuts! You're a builder...

What do you think about the Meng kit?
1. August 2013, 13:52
J.R. Sharp I thought it was pretty good. The attachment point for the mine roller could have used some work...but other than that...I loved it. You can read the review on the IPMS-USA site.
1. August 2013, 15:27
Heico van der Heide Why did you use that colour? IDF uses a green/greyish colour. Other then that i like it.
29. September 2013, 16:02
J.R. Sharp This was russian uniform green, which was arrived at after several conversations with an IDF commander. 2 colors have been used, a green or a sandy color.
2. October 2013, 17:59
Roy McKenzie fantastic. How did you do the anti-skid surface?
2. October 2013, 18:12
J.R. Sharp It was a kit from MausWerks, but all you really do is paint future on it with a brush and then you can use sand, embossing powder or something of that nature. Came out really well. To get the loose particles I just hit it with my airbrush some.

I am building this Merkava right now, and just wanted to let you know there is a little mistake in the instruction sheet. Part B-10 needs to be put on the rear end of the tank as shown in step 10 of the instr. sheet.

Urban Gardini I used hamster sand on mine earlier this year. Check my profile.
10. July 2012, 16:40
Urban Gardini Ah! Photos, that we like. I see that you did the same error as me in that the section for the driver includin' the hatch shouldn't have any anti-slip...
10. July 2012, 16:46
Paulo Monteiro Hi Urban.
Before I started this kit, I searched on the net for information and other modellers that built the Merkava III, and I saw yours, so, you are the reason to that "error"!!! Just kidding, but lesson learned.
I never tried the hamster sand, but embossing power makes a good result, on my point of view.
Sorry guys about my English.
10. July 2012, 16:56
Urban Gardini Sorry mate! Glad you liked my effort with a kit that fought me all the way. Oh, don't excuse your English mate as it's way better than my Portugese.
10. July 2012, 17:00
Frank Krause Hi Paulo, great job! The anti-slip surface looks convincing... What colour did you use? I still looking for the right Humbrol colour. I fear I will need to mix some together.

And thanks to you and Urban for the hint with the driver's hatch. I have this kit still ahead of me...
10. July 2012, 17:12
Paulo Monteiro For the colour I used 1 part of XF 24 and 1 part of XF 57.
After the paint job I found a can of XTRA COLOR enamel Israel Sand Grey Ref X 810.
I don't known if this product its of production.
10. July 2012, 17:32
Urban Gardini You're pretty much on target with your mix I'd say. Too bad that It's not brushfriendly so Frank have to find a suitable Humbrol Enamel mix so he can brush his tank.
10. July 2012, 17:35
Augie Nice paint job, :)
10. July 2012, 17:38
