1/35 M151A2 “jappas” in IDF service during operation “peace for Galilee”, Lebanon 1982-1985
Finally finished, took almost a year with some pauses. It still needs bit of dust but I will add that once it is on base.
Basic kit is Academy, wheels are from DEF models, some parts I used from Legends and CMKs sets, lights are from SKP models, FN mag is from LiveResin, rest of the stowage is home-made or from various leftovers. The decals were designed by me and printed on decal paper. Off course there was a lot of scratch-building as you can see, but was worth the time and effort. Painted with my own color mixed from AK interactive paints.
Big "toda" to Michael Mass who provided me with dozen of amazing photographs.
My model represents the vehicle from era of Lebanese war which is amplified by the "Times" magazine from June 1982 reporting about Israels enter to Beirut, on the drivers seat.
