1/35 Tamiya Merkava Mk.I

March 1, 2023 · in Armor · · 7 · 0.8K

Getting back into armor kits, here is the old straight out of the box with stowage from the spares bin and an orange tissue paper identification tarp. Painted with a rattle can and weathered with chalk pastels and Vallejo washes. Haven't built a 35th scale tank in decades, thank you for letting me share!
