IDF Shot Kal "Alef" (1/35th Scale) Plastic Military Model Kit

SKU: AMU35A048


Amusing Hobby 1/35 Scale IDF Shot Kal Alef Valley of Tears 1973 - Plastic Model Building Kit # 35A048 The Amusing Hobby 1/35 IDF Centurion Shot Kal Alef from the plastic tank model kits range accurately recreates the real life Israeli variant of the Centurion tank. In the 1960s, Israel imported a number of British Centurion tanks in anticipation of it being a first-generation tank for them, but they found it to be undergunned and unsuitable for operation in the Israeli environment. The Centurions were heavily modified into an essentially new tank known as the Sh'ot; the Sh'ot participated in the Six-Day War, and further modification resulted in the Sh'ot Kal, which had a diesel engine and a more powerful transmission. This is Amusing Hobby's kit of this tank, reflecting its appearance in the Valley of Tears battle during the Yom Kippur War in 1973.
