|Merkava Mk. I (early)|
This Israeli vehicle dates from around 1979. The base
kit is by Tamiya, with some scratch-built details including the tiny
hooks for the spare tracks at the front hull and right side of the turret,
the driver's hatch retainer, the driver's periscopes, several bolts
for the mud flaps front and back (also the inner mud flaps), and one
of the rear fire extinguisher mountings.
