Meng Model 1:35 - Merkava Mk.3D/BAZ Tactical Markings - Plastic model kit #SPS-003
The Mk.3D/BAZ is a variant of the Israeli Merkava 3D main battle tank enhanced with the BAZ system (BAZ shortened from Hebrew "Barak Zoher" meaning "Shining Lightning"). The BAZ system includes a number of upgrades mainly concerning protection of the vehicle from enemy fire and nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.
This decal sheet includes various IDF tactical markings suitable for the Israeli Merkava Mk.3D/BAZ main battle tank. Two painting schemes are provided, however the modeller can choose other alternatives in order to build a unique tank. The kit adds realism and details to a Merkava Mk.3D/BAZ model.
Meng Model 1:35 - Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Zimmerit Decals
When Germany started the production of the Panther Ausf. A, Zimmerit was used to cover the metal armour of the vehicles to prevent magnetic anti-tank mines from sticking to it. Zimmerit was applied to Panther tanks in different patterns as there was no exact requirement on the appearance of this coating.
Meng has selected four most popular and hard to replicate Zimmerit patterns and created a series of easy to use water slide decals representing those patterns. Use one of them with the TS-035 Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf. A (Late) kit to add more realism to your Panther model.

Meng Model 1:35 - Sd.Kfz.182 King Tiger Zimmerit Decal - Plastic model kit #SPS-039
Zimmerit was used on WWII German AFVs since 1943 to cover the metal armour of the vehicle to prevent magnetic anti-tank mines from sticking to it. Zimmerit had the consistency of a thick paste or putty that after application was patterned and then hardened with a blow torch. This process usually happened at the factory and the patterns could vary depending on where the vehicle was produced. In the late 1944 Zimmerit was discontinued from application due to concerns that it could catch fire.
These water slide decals have a 3D printed texture to replicate Zimmerit applied to the early Kingtigers. This set is perfect for the Kingtiger Sd.Kfz.182 (Henschel Turret) kit from Meng.
