Tiran in Lebanese Wars

Announced here on the blog since last may, here comes the definitive guide to Tiran MBTs used on Lebanese soil, “Tiran in Lebanese Wars”. The book made by Samer Kassis in collaboration with Mig Jimenez is composed of more than 100 pages with around 300 big sized color pictures and contains 6 color profiles. It offers first hand informations for modelers seeking to build a realistic Tiran in scale as it includes photos giving many examples of weathering effects, like fuel stains, chipping, rust, dust, smoke and more.

Most of the pictures are very rare and unpublished before of the Tiran in combat or under maintenance. A treasure for the Middle East lovers.
