Rob Schaepe – Merkava 3D

A brief history

MERKAVA 3DHere is my Meng kit of the Merkava 3D.

A really wonderful kit to assemble. The kit is right out of the box. The only exception is the non-Slip surface which is not mounded onto the kit. I used tamiya paints to give this tank the look it has. A combination of tamiya buff with a touch of olive green and this is what I came up with. The no-slip is a little coarse.

I found out after the fact that aquarium sand is better. So lesson learned for next time.

The Meng kit is a jewel to put together and there are virtually no fit issues to speak of here. Weathering was done with mug pigments and home made filters and pin washes
