Hi all,
I am building Takomís Merkava 1 hybrid and part D13 on the turret in front of the commanderís sight has me stumped. This is the horizontal piece and is the bullet deflected (Iím sure thatís not the technical term!) that deters damage to the sight from incoming small arms fire. The part fits fine, but there is a gap at the front between the piece and the turret. Iíve looked at my book on the Merkava and also the web, but I canít tell if it should have a gap or not. Some pictures appear like it does, others it doesnít. Any info regarding this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hope it's not too late (didn't see this in the general group) but maybe these will help? Merkava 1 Hybrid at Panzermuseum Munster.
