Indian Army “BHISHMA” T90S Tank - This is a tank that I have wanted to make for a while, but I have struggled to find any plans to scratch build the turret. Using the Zvezda 1/35 scale T-90 kit I have scaled the measurements down to build my turret, which I have mounted on the Revell T-72 hull. The most complicated part so far has been the commanders’ cupola, which is a model in its own. It certainly packs a lot of equipment and detail in to a very small area.

Israeli Army M109A2 Doher 155mm Self-Propelled Gun - The OKB Grigoroy casting is good, but a few of the details are not quite right for the IDF M109A2 Doher. I removed all the turret detail to make it easier to add additional equipment and stowage required for IDF version. The rectangular turret hatch was cut out to allow for a crew figure and I’ve started building the taller IDF commanders cupola. The A2 sight cover from the kit has been modified to Israeli standard. The barrel comes in three pieces and needs some careful lining up before joining it to the mantlet. The muzzle brake and gun mantlet requires a bit of reshaping too match detail on the Doher version. The driver’s position was moved forward as it was too close to the turret, which has meant changing the slope of the hull and re-cutting the panel line to allow everything to line up correctly, nightmare! The transmission covers on the front lower hull were a bit square and needed reshaping, as well as adding few new pieces on the front.

Israeli Army “Magach Tagash Tsemed” M60 AVLB (Armoured Vehicle Launched Bridge) - This master is intended to be a conversion kit for the Revell M60 main battle tank. It is the Israeli Army version of the AVLB with their minor modifications plus both early and late cupolas. I have completed the basic construction of the Israeli designed tandem/double 9 metre bridge to accompany the model, but there is still plenty of detail to be added.
