Great! Thanks to HobbyBoss the Puma is now available in plastic like most of IDF subject. I owned a lot of AEF stuffs but most were just 3D references for scratch during years.
I thinks the only decent conversion i still have is a 160mm mortar sherman one!

Getting ready to paint

Body and hull will be of a light color

Side panels will receive a different share to make seem that they were interchanged

Dozer assembly will receive a heavy weathering finish

Track will receive a combination of light rust and heavy dust

Enjoy and happy modelling

Hi Guilbert,

That's just incredible scratchbuilding and artistry! You are at another level from me.

I love the Urdan dozer blade. Could you point me to anywhere that may have tech drawings of it? Might need to attempt something as I don't think its commercially available.

Great skills!
