    Guys it is ISU 152 not JSU, the 'old' dragon kit is not that bad Alex, anzi it is still good as it has 3in 1 option of different guns instead of this. The DML only flow is that it is a few mm lower and the wheels a tight smaller. The new Orange series is advertised that this flow is corrected,

    Dottore, stop this shake and back thing from Tamiya, probably it is based on the previous IS2 which is 2 years old now, and can't undertsnad why they took so damn long to come out, as everything was ready. Hope big T amended their biggest flow in the IS family, the fenders were calculated on a postwar museum relic and these were smaller then the original WW2. Something easily corrected and only visible to Russian lovers and nitpickers. Definetly a must have and mine soon on order, from Euro I bought the burrel from RB, a must have for this beast and also a set of tracks ...

    sorry for the mistake. you are right it is the isu 152/122. the jsu 152/122 was based on the kv1s hull
    as for the dragon kit i have to disagree with you a bit here some of the details are completely wrong it is a mismatch of early and late vehicles from different plants all across the ussr. the is/js tanks where built in mort than 12 different plants accross the formr soviet union and although the specifications where rigid no two plants produced identical vehicles. one example there where 10 different styles of healights and 4 types of horns. so i you decide to build this or any russian tank for that matter either make allowences or build a well documented vehicle.

    Will see what Tamiya came up to, they took 2 years for the making ... yes you are right difficult to be 100% with ruskies, better stick to documents.

    By the way seems Trumpeter are going to continue the KV series ... will see, awaiting a KVIS from them!

    Yep seen them mate, I love they are keeping producing light cars and early war material, that Adler is top notch.

    By the way many are craving for the Chinese MBT ... they are saying it's a beauty but the digital camo makes you wonder how to airbrush [and they say AFVs are simple models What a Face]

    U min qed jitkellem!! min jisboh il-pupi, imma nsomma that's another story. IMO the most difficult part is to mask the pattern but nothing out of this world, especially being a large model (nahseb). It would be a nice challenge so go for it Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

    this is the type of camo i was talking about. this is simpler to reproduce on this type of model but imagine it on a tank loads of irregular surfaces and bits and pieces jutting out round barrel etc etc
