Great build and especially the perfect weathering. Terrific photos, also. There’s no way this looks like a “fifth model”
As Craig said, you’ll like this site. Full of great people with amazing skills.
But it is fifth model 🙂 really… Thank you 🙂

Meng do some nice kits and you’ve done a good job with this one, Robert, welcome to iModeler.

This is amazing for your 5th model; you sure learn fast! Beautifully done, Robert. Superb detailing!
Thank you for such a nice reception and appreciation of my work.
@jim wasley, @George Williams: INMHO Meng is doing great job – model kits are very detailed, the build is smooth and easy.

Very impressive Merkava. Looks to me like you have that born with talent.
I saw a mention of the ball and chain armor in an earlier post. Where did you get yours?
Thanks. The ball and chain armor is an made of a plastic material, integral part of the kit. I didn’t use any additional parts during building process.

A challenging kit, well modelled.
Gary Brantley said on May 31, 2017
Great looking Merkava! I love the finish here. I remember reading a quote from the great Tony Greenland regarding his quite clean armor builds, I’m paraphrasing, “I’m trying to represent the vehicle, not the terrain in which it operated”. I loved that attitude, and I like seeing clean tanks sometimes as well as the very dirty ones!
That’s a winner Robert! 🙂

Gary, nice quote from Mr. Greenland! I’m gonna use that! Thanks!

If that’s 5 models in, you’re on your way to building some contest winners! Looks great.

Cool tank! The Meng kits are fantastic, I’ve built a couple myself.
Looking forward to seeing some more of your builds.
Robert, welcome! Five in a year is a really good rate of building. Keep up the great work!
