15mm IDF Israeli Merkava Mark 4 Main Battle Tanks from.....

......Khurasan Miniatures.

Motivation and other factors have meant I didn't enter the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge this year, good luck to the brave 100 (except Ray)!

Theses were painted earlier in the year..........

These resin tanks with metal parts are from Khurasan and are very decent casts, very little fuss, no markings for them yet.

There is a 15mm IDF trooper for a little scale help.........



These are actual IDF Merkavas........

  5. Very nice. They are actually not a tank I really like. But that is not saying you have done a bad job. You have done a good job. But because they can also carry infantry I prefer a dedicated tank and not a hybrid MICV and Tank.
    But that is all my Hang up and takes nothing away from how well they are painted.

    1. Totally agree Clint, they are not my favourites but just something for the IDF to field!

  7. It's a shame you didn't enter the painting challenge but I'm sure Ray will do you proud. The tanks look great. I certainly wouldn't want to be staring down the barrel of one of them.

  11. Terrific work Fran. The colour scheme seems very appropriate, and your brushwork has certainly helped bring out all the models' detail. Indeed, I've spent a bit of time pouring over your piccies and looking at all the very nice touches the sculptor has achieved with them. Wonderful stuff imho.
