Shalom.

It's looking pretty good.

Just a couple of questions.

Are you leaving it with the 90mm gun tube?

Are you going to correct the height of the suspension by lowering it 3mm? Tamiya measured an M-48 that DID NOT have the engine in it. Thus their M-48 kit sits 3mm too high. Nothing too serious though and easy to correct if one wants too.

Given its age it's still a pretty decent kit. You'll enjoy building it. I'm very interested in seeing what you do with this as I have one I'm going to build sometime as a 105mm gun armed one during the Yom kippur War. It'll be educational to see your paint colours on the model.

Good luck and cheers
