Hobby Boss Merkava

Recommended Posts

It appears the Hobby Boss Merkava IV is a really nice kit. Except for the Lower hull having offset Bogie attachement points. You may want to consider holding off on this purchase until they figure it out.

Not sure about EPIC...but definitely a major mistake.

That seems SO weird! How could they mess that up to that degree & NOT notice. Obviously, put that kit on the "Buy after the Fix" list for sure!

I really can't believe it was missed. That would be like putting HVSS mounts on an M1.

Sneeky Nazis; doing the alignment like a tiger tank. OYH!

I got the Academy kit a couple of days ago an it looks pretty good. I will say that filling the ejector-pin marks in the tracks will be a pain to fill, and that the texture on the upper surfaces is more of a crinkle than a gravel. Otherwise it's a nice looking lit. Oh and the wheel alignment is correct.

Wow, Major Screw up here. Going to be costly for them to fix. For the price of the kit it is really going to P-off a lot of people that buy it.

 

Thanks for the heads up Mark, I was thinking about buying a kit of this tank.
