Hi Pals, Here I present you to the ISU-152 revisited and finished (I hope at all ... lol). For those who have not followed the WIP, and are interested, the upgrade consisted of a Metal Tracks, a metal cannon, a couple of tow copper cables and some used cartridges. Also, I had to fix the train a little to adapt the tracks, and to go over some weathering, especially the snow, pus in the process was lost a lot. IMHO I think it was worth it and it was better, something closer to reality. Here is link to the WIP, and another to the old RFI, to see differences... Thank you very much for watch and comment, and for the interest shown. An old rear view ...
Hi all, I have been able to see with the passage of time, some examples of ISU-152 kits in the forum, with metal tracks, and I must admit without hesitation, specifically in this particular model, are an added "almost obliged ". Even more, when the quality of the track that the kit brings (Zvezda), is quite" crude ". Modestly, I think the kit I completed, seems to have been very well received (kindly) by many forum members. This has made me reconsider the idea of upgrading the kit with some extras ... The main and more than obvious and necessary, are the "dreaded" by expensive metal tracks, and then, at the heart of the question, a metal cannon, a few drag cables and a few ammo cartridges ... that do not suppose an overpayment, but sure to be a good addition. I have been able to find these tracks, at a "reasonable" price (remember that the kit is worth less than the tracks ... grrrr), but by saving the shipping costs, I think it's worth it, and always, if you do not like it was, you already have them ready for another better kit in the future ...looks good, isn`t? My first metal tracks , a lot of work to do.... Thx for watch and comments as always, cheers mates.

Hello! I'm working on a full detail set for the Hobbycraft kit that I own ... will be making copies that will be for sale eventually ;-) Right now, wrapping up the cockpit then working my way to the gun bay and landing gear. Haven't decided if I will do the engine set. If there is enough demand, I will make the commitment.
