Lately I’ve received a number of inquiries about Ball and Chain sets. In order to help out the ones who are interested in it, and to make everything more easily understandable, I will provide you with this article, featuring the set and “how-to” explanation.
Each set contains chain, which is approximately 50cm long, and set of chains, enough to complete one tank, and have enough material for spare use. The balls featured in the set are almost 100% identical to the ones included in Hobby Boss’ Merkava sets. However, the chain is thicker, and it looks more like the real ones seen on the Merkava tanks.
Hobby Boss set is nice, but usually the length of the chain is not enough, and as you can see from the picture above, the ball is quite unusually big for the chain they provided. Such difference is not seen on the real tank. The other important thing to mentions, is that Hobby Boss’ chain does not always looks straight. For whatever reason, the links are looking odd.

The set has about 70 balls, and they are more than enough for a single tank. The chains is also plenty, but you can even spare more, if you make a hook from tin wire, to attach the upper link to the turret.

The price per set is $15,99 and that includes WorldWide shipping.
