Adie Roberts takes a look at one of the Hobby Boss Israeli Defence Force APC Nagmachon, to see if it lives up to the expectations.

More really cool Isreali armour aimed at those of us tired of the same ol' Sherman, Panther, etc. Gotta love the clutter that was these vehicles!

No, I'll stay with HB. If you want to build the different vehicles, it is better to use the models of one producer only. There are small differences between different producers and these would be visible showing the APCs in a line. So I bought HB Nagmashot, Nagmachon, Nagmachon doghouse II and the Puma (based on the Centurion too, but with Merkava undercarriage). And now I'm waiting for the HB Doghouse I. Maybe TM is a little bit better and HB models are missing some small details. I'm very pleasend with the kits and wait for more!

ReluctantRenegade when asking about both kits are you asking what one is the better version if so, what would you be looking for the one that is accurate to the real Nagmachon, parts count, value for money or which one looks the best.

Correct, even though after building TM's "Doghouse" variant I'm leaning towards their offering right now.
