M60 Blazer (Italeri)
IDF M60 Blazer (Italeri). A cheap but decent kit with 2 scratch additions of my own. Painted with a mix of Tamiya XF-59 Desert yellow and XF-20 Medium Grey.
The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) received M48s, M60s and M60A1s from the U.S. which took part in the 1973 Yom Kippur War in both the Sinai and the Golan Heights. Israel further upgraded their inventory of M60s prior to their use in the invasion of Lebanon in the 1982 Lebanon War. The Israeli modifications included new tracks and explosive reactive armor (ERA).
