IDF Diorama

Hello! Can you say something about the conversion of the M-6AT? Have they been used by IDF or is it s / f? I’ll be browsing here ;-). Sorry, but I use a translator …

@ReluctantRenegade Well, I will have to get them to strip then won’t I? :grinning:
It’s a good thing I am not to fussy about those things :grinning: in my LAV thing I also added figures and stowage from different timeframes… I am more into building a scene than 100% historical accuracy…

@Gregory_J_Copplin I was very lucky to get them second hand, here in Holland there is a thriving second hand market for kits, don’t know if they are anywhere left to be gotten new… maybe ebay or ali? But then they are probably not the real stuff…

Hi Piotr, I had found pictures of M6 used by IDF but not the AT version, that’s why I left the gun out and replaced it with that SS11 set.
I had found 2-3 pictures of that version, but don’t know if IDF actually used it or only tested it…
They for sure used the 'bare’version, a screen shot from a newsreel about IDF forces entering Gaza in 1967:



The conversion is based on this picture:

@bwilt you are very fortunate, i have considered the Ali option and gambling that they are worth the price and at least are a decent kit.

To be honoust, I have no proof that I got an original kit… could very well have been gotten from Ali and sold to me… no box…

Thanks everone, hope to live up to our epetations… no pressure… :grinning:

@ReluctantRenegade those are nice pictures! I first thought our top pic looked very much like the one I found, ut its a different licenceplate and so

Yo! You will be busy for a while for sure! Looking great of course. Ever thought of doing the whole Dog Green sector of Omaha beach?
Anyway, I admire your ambition. Keep up the good work:) /Erik

Wow! Where was that?

I visit too many sites… to give you an examples of big dio’s from a Dutch site:
Someone doing a diorama in 1/72 that goes along 3 walls of his room, started in 2013, last posts were from end 2020:





He keeps his army in drawers… part of german army for 1 section

Chassis of the Dragon is getting along,

I have sprayed the Dodge 6x6 in primer and then the chassis in black… and took the engine of the M3 along while I still had some black…
Made some comparison pictures of the chassis of both… bit of a detail difference…
