If that’s one of your first builds then you’re off to a great start. As you’ve discovered, Armorama is a great place to learn more and build on your skills. My top tip is to look for references - photos of the vehicle and landscape you are building. They can be an inspiration and help with making your models look as authentic as possible. Welcome to the hobby! Now be prepared to obsess about tiny pieces of plastic and shades of green, brown, yellow and grey.
Welcome Werner and nice little intro build and dio for the Merkava. Hope you enjoy your time now you are here, and hope to see more builds from you soon
There are various tutorials you can find here about how the site works and hopefully that will make things a bit easier for you .
It’s all part of the process and we have all done it. Some of us still do (this guy), take what you have learned and apply it to your next project. Depending on fast you build you can post photos along the way and folks can give you help. What’s your next project?
I love that part of fun is learning. I just finished a (what I believe at the moment) great cobblestone street with all the trimmings, but unfortunately the model I’m building, painting and placing is a Warhammer 40K tank that I got as a gift. I know this isn’t really the place for that. I am also finishing a Masterbox set of figures with a desert diorama, but after these two its back to model tanks and I’m going all in with WW2 armor!
Werner, just a very quick note about doing things and what you can do etc.
Like I said, look for the tutorials and read through some of those and that will really explain things and how the site works.
The site sort of works on trust levels which increase as to the more things you do, like, read posts, reply to posts, reply in other posts and sub sections, how many times you visit the site,post images and include links etc etc. Once you get the general hang of it, the site will become easier for you understand and do things.
It also has a very good admin team and moderators who can help out when needed.
