Just a few pics of my latest project build - Merkava 1 Hybrid from Takom - awesome kit! Still undecided if I want to weather it more...

Thanks for the feedback - as for the kit itself, actually - problems are not much to speak of. The turret glass requires some tricky masking unless you leave it out til done. The Turret anti-RPG ball and chain is delicate but I waited til the end to put it on. Tracks are fun - kidding - but not really hard to do. Otherwise very fun kit to build and paint/weather. I like the Takom kits a lot - I did the M47 (Pakistan) and have the Iranian one on the project desk...
