It sorta depends on what years you are modeling.
One of the better discussions I found is at
"Which colour for your IDF vehicle"
The page gives you mixes of various brands but the color swatches are matched
to time periods. MM #2138 is Sinai Grey. I just bought some.
the paint page seems not be working now.
IDF Braille-Scale Modelling lots of info
there are two discussion of
IDF color. In one MM Armour Sand 30277 is given. The second has color chips
from actual vehicles.
The color seems to have evolved from a sand to a grey. In more recent photos
of Merkavas appear a disctinct grey color.
I "THINK" Israeli Sinai Grey matches more the early 80s grey (see
, BUT on
it looks more like
1973 colour only lighter (the white background doesn't help.
I'm doing the Cent in the 1973 mix from
I'm going to do my Merkava I in
MM Sinai Grey. Not sure what to do the III in, might take one of the mixes
and grey it up even more.
Lotsa luck. Sorry I didn't get back to you. I'm not interested in trades and
I had both offered already, anyway.
Thanks for all the advice and the links.
If you were referring to the two Dragon Panzer kits I had for sale or
trade they have both been sold.
I have three of the AFV Centurions. One is a 1967 Sho't. One is a
Sho't KAL 1973 and the other is another Sho't KAL 1973 that I'm adding
a thermal sleeve gun barrel and reactive armour to to bring it closer
to a 1982 version. I have the Academy Merkava II and am ordering the
Academy Merkava IV since it appears it is going to be reasonably
accurate. I also have the Italeri M-109 -now under construction and
have even figured out how I want to display it.
