Merkava - last details

One last detail I forgot : the 2 big tow-cables that wrap around the turret. The instructions have you connect them with a simple wire, but that looks plain ugly and the real vehicle uses chains to keep them up. So I started looking for alternatives.

I ended up going to a store that sells jewelry-supplies (like thread, pearls, trinkets and .. chain!) The smallest silver chain they had looked close enough in scale.

  1. Nice save. The wire tie would have looked.... well, stupid. Especially, compared to you elegant solution. It is amazing the things we can find to use on our models that are not found in a hobby shop. Good job.
