My new tank project: a 1/35 soviet IS-3 heavy tank from Tamiya.
It is a nice kit, quite easy to put together. But it is an “old” kit (released in 1998, or something like that) and as such, it offer fewer details and options than more recent kits. And the kit has vinyl tracks :-(. So I had to do some detailing work, added some wires, handles made from strips of thin metal, plasticard bits, etc. I’m not 100% done, but quite close.
Overall, it is a tank with an impressive look, even more so when you consider that it was developed near the end of WWII (1944). It seems it was not used in combats in WWII, but it was part of the victory parade in Berlin on September 7 1945.
More to come; stay tuned.
Увидимся! (see you!)
