Drug out the Meng Merkava IIb kit last night. Looks pretty good in the box, but who knows for sure. They spec MIG Colors, and they are near impossible to find in my area. I use mostly Mission and Vallejo paints, and I need to cross the MIG 132 to Mission or Vallejo Air.
Thanks in advance

Working on the same kit. I used Model Air Israeli Sand Grey 82.
82 is the year not the paint number. There is also a Israeli Sand Grey 72 if I remember correctly. Good luck.

I use Model Air 71.044 Grey RLM02, or 71.023 Hemp. I like how they look.
