This is the Takom kit of the C2 Mexas. I’ve heard some not too complimentary things about the turret of the Takom kit. As I’m doing another (Meng) C2 but with the thermal cover to the turret and driving area, I decided to “donate” the unused turret from the Meng to this one. That in itself was a “fun” story…

There are also some Legend detail and update parts. The basics are done, so I’m now working on the stowage as you can see…

  1. Great subject, spectacular weathering, Ian!

  2. Nice work, Ian. Lots of careful detail work put into getting this one right. The weathering is effective. I like the bootprint effect others have mentioned. I don’t think I’ve seen that done before. You seem to be a MiG finishings user. Do you use the MiG non-slip surfacing on your vehicles? I got it for the Merkavas in my stash but haven’t had the gumption to use it yet.
