Tamiya 1/35 Israeli Merkava Main Battle Tank (35127)
About the Israeli Merkava Main Battle Tank
Thanks to its manhandling of the Syrian-operated Soviet T-72 during the 1982 Lebanon War, the Merkava became a well-known and feared presence. This precision plastic model assembly kit recreates the Merkava, breathtakingly capturing its form including angled spaced armour across the hull and wedge-shaped cast turret with 105mm rifled gun. Details such as the thermal cover, side skirts, machine gun and more are depicted with aplomb. A commander figure is also included.
As with all Tamiya items, instructions are clear and concise, in order to allow the modeller to build a detailed model with relative ease. These assembly kits require paint and modelling glue sold separately.
