Hello,
I am becoming interested in building a Merkava. I donít really care what version I build but I do want to avoid having to add the non slip texture. So my question is, is there an actual version of Merkava that did not have the anti slip added or is there a kit that includes the anti slip molded on or perhaps as decals? Some day I will take on doing my own anti slip but Iím just not ready to tackle that at this point. Thanks for your help.

The Hobby Boss Mek Mk.IIID has the non-slip coating molded on.

Also, both the Academy Merkava Mark 4 LIC and the Meng Merkava 4M with Trophy also have molded on anti slip.

The real thing that stops me from considering a later Merkava would be the ball and chain armor.A III or a IV would have to have it I guess.
