Academy, 1/35 scale
|by Yee Soon Tuck
Here is Academy's 1/35 scale Merkava III built straight
This is my first desert-scheme AFV, airbrushed with Tamiya acrylics
XF56 Buff lightened with gray.
The colour might not be very accurate.
Weathering is via pastel chalks and a light acrylic wash.
The decals were unmanageable, too thick and not responsive to Mr
Mark Softer (decal-set).
The white stripes on the barrel and chevrons were masked and
airbrushed with white, then toned down with misted Buff.
I was not aiming for high accuracy here, just an exercise for
airbrushing acrylics. It was an enjoyable build.
