IDF M151A2 Djapas utility car

The small model had been a shelf queen for ages before I finished it in 2009. Several times I repanted and disassembled it. Many aftermarket and scratchbuilt parts were used.

M151s enterd IDF service in the early 80s (or late 70s) and all of them seem to be of A2 version, unlike Academy's A1 offer. The only A1 photos of Israeli vehicles seem to be Jordanian trophies. I finished my Djapas as a vehicle during Peace for Galilee operation, 1982, armed with old M1919 instead of more common MAG. M151 are still in service in IDF reserve units.
