Here’s look inside the real thing, which also explains some of the more unusual features of the Merkava:

Thanks for posting that, very interesting. There can’t be many, if any, other tanks that have a back door for access

It certainly has a very futuristic look and also the ability to carry troops onboard

Great looking Merkava Mick. Looks the part and I'd like to have one. I have the earlier mark by Tamiya.

Cheers,
Richard

Great work Mick and definitely one of the world's more unusual AFVs

Very well done indeed.

Great to see this baby at the finish line Mick. Looks like a mean machine for sure! Your fine job makes me want to break out my Nagmatron APC and finish it for Pete's GB too.

Prost
