MENG is sure to put a smile on many modelers faces with their latest announcement!
The IDF is very concerned about the lives of the Israeli soldiers. Its forces are equipped with a number of unique combat equipment to protect the soldiers. The Namer heavy armoured personnel carrier is a good example. Beyond its heavy armour, the IDF has started to equip the Namer with the advanced Trophy active protection system. This will further improve this vehicle’s survivability against anti-tank weapons.

With the help of Lt. Col. (res) Michael Mass who’s the curator of the Latrun Armored Corps Museum, MENG now releases this SS-018 1/35 Israeli Heavy Armoured Personnel Carrier Namer model kit. The finished model will be 259.7mm long and 115mm wide.

This kit can be built as a Namer heavy APC late version, or a command version or a version with the Trophy active protection system.

I don't build modern armor but this looks like a very nice, interesting kit. I wonder how the tracks are? That is the only negative, IMHO, about Meng kits.
