Six-Day War Israeli Soldiers and/or Tank Crew?
Posted by John 3:16 KJV on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 6:14 PM

Does anybody know if there is a 1/35 model kit of Israeli soldiers and/or an Israeli tank crew for the Six Day War time period? If not, is there a 1/35 model kit(s) of figures from another country that could substitute for Israeli soldiers? Would prefer the price to be kept down... :)

Hi, KJV:

Doesn't seem to be much around.  Found these at Hannant's in the UK.

https://www.hannants.co.uk/search/index.php?search=israeli&setPerPage=25&scale_id=954&search_direction=asc&pageID=1

I don't know what time-frame they represent.

Hannant's is a good source and very reliable.  Of course, it involves overseas postage.

Amazon has these:

Hope you find what you're looking for.

At least for crew sticking their heads out of hatches, wouldn't US World War 2 tankers work?

Tamiya included a couple of really swell 1973 era guys in their Tiran 5 kit.

Modeling is an excuse to buy books

Thanks, guys. I might be able to work with some US figures. :)

Their’s and Academy’s M-51 Sherman kits also come with some decent crew figures. It’s a shame that none of the new Dragon IDF kits come with appropriate figures, or that they do not release some sets.

But yes, to make to 67 or 73 War figures, you’ll need to do some conversions. Hornet heads help.

That M-3 was really rock n' roll BTW. I remember those pictures from 1967, and one of a guy soaking himself in the Canal while holding his AK over his head.

Well he looks a lot happier than this grunt in the water from the same time on the other side of the world....

True enough, brother. You know your 6 Day War History better than I do, but when you win a war by loading your paras on buses because the aircraft can't get them there fast enough, it's a great relief when it's over.

1956 Suez was essentially the same campaign run in 1967 on the Sinai front. The paras were again to be dropped on Mitla pass. But the armor moved much more rapidly in 1967, and there was an added airmobile capability not present in 1956. So some of the Paras were indeed bussed off to take Jerusalem instead, along with some flying armored columns. While other armored columns went into the Golan. Short and sharp decisive battles.

And yes, fighting a war that’s over in one week against a stand up enemy over ground that will not be relinquished except in exchange for a proper peace treaty is far better than fighting an elusive  enemy day in and day out, over the same pieces of ground that with few exceptions will not be retained , when they choose to engage, with no end in sight.

Hey, Stik, thanks for the tip.

Model kits for IDF soldier/tanker figures in different positions (sitting, marching, and fighting) would make for a decent product suggestion alright... :)
