Just cuz I wanted to, imagine the next generation of Magach6, a collaboration with the US, using the ERA from the Marine M60A1 Rise/passive, IDF fire control, various bits from Merkavas and M1 road wheels, along with Merkava4 tracks, topped with the German 120mm gun. In reality, I was just trying to use up some leftover parts, while also wanting to do something within the realm of possibility. I had too much fun, actually.

Don't take it too seriously, I don't.

Thanks! That was my goal, by the way, to build something that could have been.

Thank you!. I was looking at my stash the other day, gathering parts for the next build, and I realized I have about twice as many boxes of partial kits and just boxes of parts than I do actual complete kits. Hmmmm......
