This resin kit upgrades your Merkava Mk.4M with fully loaded turret and rear baskets. If you plan on adding this to your model, plan, dry-fit and double-check so that each part you install onto the rear of the turret does not mess up the fit.

I trimmed the belts at the back of the rear hull baskets so that the fit is flush.

I like this set for its accuracy and detail. Each link even has foundry markings.

Majority of the links have a bit of metal to be cleaned but this could easily be fixed with a gentle swipe with a sharp blade. The resin pins are tapered so that each pin locks the two joined links. As soon as I learned the most efficient technique to build the tracks, it went rather well. A bit time consuming though, but you'd get excellent results.

Better than the kit supplied tracks.

Only kit parts shared with Hobby Boss Nr.82916 IDF Merkava Mk.IIID model appear to be the 2 injection molded track/inner wheel components - all other sprues/parts (and decals) are different (quite correctly!). Great detail on new 'saucer' turret too!

This is a new project for Armorama IDF Campaign. This kit suffers from a few flaws that I will not correct except the most major one, which is the suspension. The Merkava IV doesn't have a torsion bar suspension system but it was done this way by Hobby Boss. The correction has been done on the kit already. I will post a photo post-surgery! :)

Lookin' great! At least it's an good kit n' not the 'ol Merkava IIIC from Academy you're buildin' as your second tank. So it'll turn out great for you, that I'm sure of!

Thanks guys, glad I didnt get the IIIC, it was this one or another M1A1 for Operation Iraqi Freedom. I was a bit scared at first but I am happy with the results so far.
