Modeling Armor of Operation "Iron Swords"

Been using the Binks single action Wren for as far back as I can remember… I wanna be buried with it

Thanks all so very much for the pictures and photos of models!!! Fantastic!
Question for the Merkava experts please: I am modeling an early III, Barak, in Gaza with the odd shaped loader’s hatch. I see lots of early III’s but not many pics of the topside understandably, so it’s difficult to distinguish variation 1 from 2. I’ve noticed the second variation has the circular loader’s hatch that sits above the loader when opened. Would I be correct that seeing a loader in standing position and no hatch visible above his head, that it is indeed a Barak? Thank you!!!

Following the gravy train to their next meal.

There’s stories of reservists coming back from their short breaks to visit family of bringing back sacks of pet food to feed the stray’s. And many daily rescues being transported to rescue shelters to get checked over and then adopted

I’ll try and find some of the video coming out of the area

Perfect shot of the top of the cope cage, Nikos. Makes it even easier to fabricate it all out of styrene strip. :+1:

The interesting thing is that this tank does not have the loader’s hatch. I wander if it was by choice or if the IDF has not retrofitted the hatch to all Mk4 Merkavas :thinking: :thinking:

Your guess is as good as mine. I’m not versed in Israeli heavy armor/
