Folks, I don't found the ideal group to post this project. So, the IDF looks more closer, I think.

Well, this project depics a Pz.IV, Water War, Golan Heights, 1965. This version saw combat against Israel in 1965 (Water War) and 1967 (Six Day War). Well, I used a 1/35 Tamiya's Pz.IV Ausf.J, MR Models Panzer IV Syrian Army conversion code 35174 and Academy Pz.IV late track links. Itís unclear if the Syrians installed modern Soviet radios in any of their Panzer IVs, but only in this particular case, I decided to put an antenna. Heavy weathering.

Looks very nice!!!

Perhaps some more dust at the lower parts of the hull and the suspension could blend with the heavy weathering.

Very nice build Cesar, something different. I have just ordered the Dragon release of this variant. What color did you use for the base green?

The paint chipping , weathering and rusty exhausts look fantastic . The tank commander must really have to expose most of his body that AA Mg , what where they thinking ?
