Merkava Mk.3 (1:72 scale Revell)
Posted by marcopreto on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 11:11 AM

Here are a few photos of the latest AFV model to leave my modeling bench (in late 2021).

It's an early Merkava Mk.3, built using the 1:72 s ale Revell kit.


I hope you like it.

Wow, excellent work. You could have convinced me it was 1/35. Well done.


On the bench:

Thank you for your kind comments.


What colour did you use?

I've used Ammo's #68 (IDF green or something like that, I am not sure of its name), mixed with Tamiya XF-2 Flat White. Several layers with different mix rations were applied, with chipping fluid being used between these layers. It was my first attemp in using Martin Kovac's "distressed" method (you can check his youtube channel, Nightshift, for a detailed walkthrough).
