Just curious if anyone other than myself would like/love to see Tamiya do their version/rendition of a new 1/35th scale Israeli Merkava? Say a Mk.IV LIC? Me personally would love for that to happen. Obviously, Tamiya's not released a new Merkava since they did their original back in the 80's. Would love to hear y'all's thoughts, comments whether good or bad. Thanks.

I would jump on that in a heartbeat.Their newer kits are very good,not as detailed as Dragon's,Meng's,or Hobbyboss.So for what it's worth,yes,I'm interested.

I'd settle for a repop of the original kit with updated sprockets and idler wheels. All those holes are a pain to drill. Perhaps some PE grills, but not a whole PE set. Just enough to make a nice fairly accurate OOB project.
