Hi guys

This is Hobby boss kit, I have always wanted to make a Merkava, since I saw the first tamiya kit back in the eighties. But it wasn't up to now that I decided to start one. I´m not quite happy with the kit but is the one I got so...

Wow! Great job! I've done the Academy kit a couple of times.

 

How'd you do the tracks?! They look great!

Richard- I splattered many rust colour acrylic paints with a toothbrush, then I made an earth pigments wash and finally I rubbed graphite dust on them, you can see some tutorials of alternatives here

Mark- Yes, they have achieved a nice anti-slip surfaces but they lack of other details like positionable machine gun, 12,7 for the nose, chains enough to complete the ball courtain, etc. I haven't seen mneg's so I can't compare.
