Jack you little devil!
The pics are great, the only problem is: NOW I HAVE TO BUY ONE!
Keep us informed, all about the IDF stuff.
By the way, a fellow told me he has a pic of a M151A1 in israeli marking, itīs contrary to what I have said to you later afternoon (for me-night for you).
Cheers and I īll wait for this pic...

THat was a nice pic of a fuchs but its the APC variant . IDF only used the NBC variant and John Myska printed the only known photo . I understand they were either returned or are rusting away in some storage area never used again. Wonder what replaced them?

Shame reaaly, I'd have thought the APC an interesting alternative, as the VAB is similar an functioned well in the gulf. I'm sure the IDF have them well stored and ready, they never waste when it comes to war materials. Now how to do an NBC variant? does anyone know if their is a conversion available for this? Maybe MR models?

Great one Jack but all those appliciations 45 times of cleaning the air brush not for me. to get a little weathering do you think that a regular dry brushing would of been a little easier on the mind. . Great job on the model but to much time in the painting. Testors makes an IDF color I will have to search for this

Very nicely done! But 45 airbrushed weathering coats!!!! someone had a lotta free time [grin]

I'd love to see releases of the IDF Hummer versions too.. someone HAS to be toiling away in their garage/cottage as we speak, right?

Hey Jack,

Revell also made the NBC variant. As fara shummers go AEF makes a few IDF variants. Terrre models however makes a nice open cage IDF (TOW). The TOW part however is a cast version of ITalieris old TOW from their modern WEapons set. WHich BTW was great for the uzis ans FNs.I have both hummer sets and would Either since niether realy shine.
