Hobbyboss 1:72 IDF Merkava Mk.IIID (LIC)



The Merkava  is a main battle tank used by the Israel Defense Forces. The tank began development in 1973 and entered active service in 1978. Four main versions of the tank have been deployed. It was first used extensively in the 1982 Lebanon War. The "Merkava" name was derived from the IDF's initial development program name.

It is designed for rapid repair of battle damage, survivability, cost-effectiveness and off-road performance. Following the model of contemporary self-propelled howitzers, the turret assembly is located nearer the rear than in most main battle tanks. This gives additional protection against a frontal attack. This arrangement also creates more space in the rear of the tank that allows increased storage capacity, as well as a rear entrance to the main crew compartment allowing easy access under enemy fire. This allows the tank to be used as a platform for medical disembarkation, a forward command and control station, and an armored personnel carrier. The rear entrance's clamshell-style doors provide overhead protection when off- and on-loading cargo and personnel.

Model Information:

- Model Dimension: Length: 125.6mm   Width: 55mm

Manufacturer Information

Hobbyboss are a relatively new company having only formed in the last couple of years but the rumours are they have spent a long time producing models for Trumpeter and seem to be very experienced in creating state of the art injection moulded kits. The first company to produce embedded photo etch they have caused some serious stirs in a very short space of time and they continue to make a great range of high quality affordable model kits. One to watch for the future.
