Merkava MK. IV kit coming in early 2009.

Post  Dman on Fri Jan 02, 2009 5:37 am



Due in the first quarter of 2009 is a 1/35 scale model of the Merkava MK. IV from Academy.

Several Israeli armor experts living in Israel provided research and reviewed/critiqued test shots for the Academy project.

This will be a very well received new modern armor kit of what has to be one of the coolest tanks ever developed.

I know I'll be buying several of these when they hit the market!!!

Hobby Boss has a Merk IV coming soon, I am more that sure that their's will be better than Academy's! Academy can't seem to get nothing right!

I was able to provide research photos to Hobby Boss.

As you probably know, MMD is the exclusive importer/distributor of Hobby Boss. We have started working more closely with their research and design department. A friend of mine is a IDF tanker who presently commands a Merkava Mk.4, he was able to provide a ton of research info. on the vehicle and the crews uniforms and equipment (all cleared through the IDF) to me to be forwarded to Hobby Boss.

Hopefully they will actually use it and when I get the test shots we will know.

The Academy research team also had some very good contacts and info. to base their kit on, so it should be one of their better offerings.

The Merkava 4 will be released in February, at least here in asia. This is excellent news.
One modern armour I'm eagerly waiting. I do hope Academy get things right for this one.
