I have no idea how good it is, or if it's worth the money they are asking, but there is this...

I think the link just posted was the same as the Hooben model which you can get directly through Hooben cheaper. There are threads on the Hooben version here at RCU. It is kinda fragile. Heng Long is supposed to be releasing a MK3 I believe soon, but no actual release date confirmed at this time.

@RichJohnson bought one. He had the mud flaps break off I believe and some of the suspension arms broke shortly after he bought it. The upper is 3D printed and the material they used to make it is a little brittle. The lower hull is metal, but the suspension arms are plastic. Hooben sent him a file so he could print replacements.

You can also go over Rich's thread on his: Hooben Merkeva 4M has arrived

He has all the problems described there. In addition to what I already stated, it had gearbox and track issues. I didn't read the whole thread over though so there could be more.
