Israeli Main Battle Tank Magach 6B GAL BATASH 'Inspirations' by Naoyuki Uehara | Armorama™

Adie Roberts continues his inspirations to help inspire modellers of all abilities to work out of their comfort zone building dioramas or just trying new builds.

Have seen the real thing many times - this is a superb build, the color and weathering is spot on!

A few remarks though:

  1. This isn’t a Batash but a regular 6 Bet.

  2. The handheld fire extinguishers should be in main color (if not, in foam-green).

  3. Red grab-handles on tanks, while they do exist here and there, are relatively uncommon (they’re pretty common on other IDF AFVs though).


6Β Gal, judging by the gunners sight.

I have seen this model posted many times before around the net, wrote many replies on various detail issues such as the driver’s hatch and the searchlight mount or the missing details of the engine grilles

Still a great paintjob and weathering.
