Thanks for producing a new thread post on this subject.
I can still click on the PB img link on the other thread and view the album but then I have to fight through all the ads and the context is just missing.

looks like they got their uniforms at a rummage sale.



Actually that's pretty much what happened...
Mind you, most soldiers you see on the pictures are reservists. In case of general mobilization, they get whatever is available.

Great effort, thanks so much.

I love multiple shots of the same vehicle from different angles, what a useful reference tool.

I almost think the IDF had a rule that no two soldiers in one unit were allowed to wear the same uniform, LOL, looks like they got their uniforms at a rummage sale.

The .50 cal on the M50 being mounted in different locations is something I hadn't noticed before. And it looks as if the crew member most likely to wear a steel helmet was the commander with the others wearing M38 tanker helmets, makes sense as the M38 offered no ballistic protection. I wonder when the last of the old Soviet tanker helmets was seen?

A lot of ideas for builds and dioramas there, good work.

Really digging # 71-72 as they are perfect for a diorama. Another interesting one would be #93 as it will make folks scratching their heads at a show.



You wouldn't happen to know the background history of #71-72 would you?



Obsolete tanks (mostly Shermans and T-34's) were placed along a few strategic locations on Israel's borders as fixed fortifications. No.72 was dropped right on the beach next to Rosh Ha'Nikra (on the Lebanon border), No.72 is near Moshav Yafit in the Jordan valley. 121-123 is in the Jordan Valley as well, I believe it's still visible.

Great to see you have things sorted out on your end about photo issues. I need to sign-up for Imgur as many are having good results with it. BTW, great idea of numbering each pic. It will keep things organize and simple. I sure do like #29. Beautiful lady and that's my big #.

Well, keep up the good work brother and like many I'm following along.

Mike
