  1. Hi Pals, I finally finished the kit, to my taste. Not exactly as would have imagined that over, but I like the end result. I tried some new methods for me as the most severe pigmented and do some snow. I also decided to add at the end some leaves and dried herbs, to see what they looked like, and ... there they stayed. The kit is OOB except for the slogan in Cyrillic As a final point, I have taken pictures with a SLR camera, which is, I think, the perfect complement to a finished work, for good or ill. Thanks for commenting and watch, and the support and good wishes in the thread. Included link to WIP, and vice versa the RIP To WIP: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235001060-white-hunter-red-heart-isu-152-zvezda-135/ Cheers to all
  2. All righty, it's time to plunge (back) into the wonderful world of armour! I haven't done any armour since I built a Sherman Firefly in the one true scale (1/72nd scale to you heathens), many years ago. It will be interesting to see how I get on with this one. For this adventure, I've chosen as a subject the ISU-152 Soviet assault gun/tank destroyer. I've always liked the brutish appearance of this beast. To me, an enduring image of the Soviet defeat of Nazi Germany is that of an ISU-152 rumbling through the ruins of Berlin in April of 1945. To those who don't know about the ISU-152, it was a heavily-armoured assault gun/tank destroyer which mounted a huge 152.4-mm gun-howitzer on an IS-2 tank chassis, and was designed to replace the similar SU-152 (which was mounted on a KV-1 tank chassis, and used the same gun). It was particularly useful in destroying fortifications with its huge shells, which could weigh over 100 lb. Although being relatively short-barreled with low muzzle velocity, the gun fired such a large shell that an explosive shell could kill or disable a German tank crew with its blast effect without even penetrating the armour. Regarding its nickname, 'Zveroboiy', that is Russian for 'Beast-Killer', as it killed Elephants, Panthers, and Tigers. At any rate on to the kit. It is supposed to be a 'snap-fit' kit, but it can obviously be built conventionally with glue, as I intend to do. The moulding looks quite nice, with no flash and sharp details. Regarding its accuracy, it looks like an ISU-152 to me and I'll let the tread-heads debate its accuracy, as I intend this to be an easy OOB build with no AM goodies (with the likely exception of a turned-metal barrel). Enough of my prattling on, below are some piccies: Best Regards, Jason
  3. HI Pals, On this occasion, I would like to share with you, mounting an ISU-152 Zvezda brand. I decided to try this kit because if I do not end up liking the finished model, it is a tank destroyer, not a tank. I think it's the cheapest kit, so if not just liking me, spending has been minimal, and will OOB by other side, for the same reason. Anyway, I've seen other models Zvezda in the forum, and have been proud. The first photos are of almost finished model, for though I was taking pictures, I unfortunately the lost / deleted without noticing. I do not remember having special problems mounting at the moment, perhaps with fuel tanks that have just not fit quite right and I had to sand the adjustments. Soon more updates, thx for watch and comment, cheers mates
