The Merkava is unique in the world of Main Battle Tanks. Where as traditional tanks carry their engines at the rear of the tank, the Merkava has its engine installed in the front. This enables the engine block to offer additional protection from frontal attacks.
Weighing 65 tons, the Merkava is equipped with an air cooled V12 1200 HP diesel engine and has a top cruising speed of 60 kmph.
That is certainly one interesting war machine! And trust the Israelis to come up with their own adaptation of defence high technology. The air-cooled 1200 hp diesel engine puts paid to all the arguments against air-cooling in high output engines, particularly diesel engines!
I have worked for years on MWM/Deutz air-cooled diesel generators (upto 300 kw/402 hp) for emergency generator duty while on MOL's car carriers. These units have proved completely reliable taking rated load for 8 hours at a stretch.

Recent trip to Australia resulted in a visit to one of my favourite shops in the world - Model Mania on Elizabeth Street, Melbourne. Grabbed a few little fellas there.
Immediately after that, a quick trip to Dubai and a visit to the Land Rover - Jaguar Showroom to see the F Pace, resulted in the purchase of a nice Land Rover Defender Model.

1. Alfa Romeo Giulietta Spyder 1963 - the Day of the Jackal Car, but in Red and in 1:43
2. An Austin Healey 1959 in 1:43
3. A great little LR Series 1 in 1:43
4. A little Bedford Post Office and Telephones Van in 1:76
5. The LR Defender in 1:24

Nice little happy things to buy in life!

Thank you for pointing out.
The pics in the post are visible to me when I'm signed in, but I'm unable to see it (just like you) when I'm not signed in.

Rechecked the thread (Uploading photographs directly to Team-BHP) and realized I inserted the pics in the post the incorrect way.


Here are the pics from my garage

Actually these are the only ones I had to use

To sum it all, it was an extremely satisfying experience. Started it last Sunday and worked on it only during the weekends. Yes, the finish could have been much better. But this is my first 'project'. Hopefully things will improve with time.

I had also added a 1:24 Corvette (Bburago) to my collection sometime back.

Thank you very much sir. Importing these pieces of art is main challenge as the shipping plus import duty hits. I can only wish they were available locally too. So many worthy models out there to collect and display.
