IDF AAA

Postby fscunha » 07 Apr 2012

I had to rush this entry to be finished in time..... The result of the rush are evident... Have to come back to this one.

No photo evidence of an IDF M16 but there is a photo of a M16B1 and also of a M16 converted to a mortar carrier. So this is an "educated" what if:

Mixed filling about resin. Love the stowage, hate the conversion....

That's not the only thing that is miss-aligned :bye: :bye: Yes I have to redo to boxes

Yes it is. And as usual Modeltrans has some fantastic models/conversions, excellently casted, that do not have instructions and don't really fit the model they are supposed to convert.

Now finish the other 4 HT. And yes Faustnik as soon I have these and the Egypt forces I will force you on a game in Sinai :grin: :grin: :grin:

Very nice. The "inverted T" the Israelis used makes for a very striking look.

Yes. At gives an unique look to the M3. I manage to get it more or less right by spraying white and then using custom made black stripes. I like the result although for some strange reason the black ink didn't adhere to the decal paper very well. But it gives a more faded look :grin:
