Italeri 7073 Magach 6

Italeri is re-releasing the old Esci M60A1 Blazer, now with the IDF denomination of Magach 6 (in fact, Magach 6B Bet):http://www.italeri.com/scheda.asp?idProdotto=2644

It is not a bad kit: I built it and found it quite nice, if it were not for the drum-like wheels and tracks without horns, which was typical of Esci and Italeri did not correct :http://www.network54.com/Forum/47210/message/1431275425

This would also mean that Italeri plans to re-release the whole Esci M60 family, which comprised an M60A1, M60A2 and M60A3.

Good news

August 10 2017, 3:20 AM 

It is a very interesting tank so definately it is a good news. But as you mentioned, wheels are tracks are dissapointing. Maybe they were fine when the kit was released by ESCI 30 years ago but now. Italeri should add one additional sprue with good tracks and wheels.

I`m waiting for Italeri's M60 Starship!

Revell wheels, tracks and sprockets

Wheels, tracks and sprockets can be exchanged with Revell ones. This is what I did.
This means you must sacrifice one Revell M60.
Or, you can use OKB Grigorov wheels and tracks ...

That is a plan, but...

... then you are left with many decent parts from Revell. I would be then tempted to find wheels and tracks to finish Revell's :D

For OKB, this is waaay to expensive to even consider it, at least for me.

Plan B

August 10 2017, 7:55 AM 

...and how about using the leftovers from Revell to make a diorama with a burnt-out wreck of M60 with all wheels and tracks stripped off? Like this M41 in Vietnam:
