Note also the different sag of the tracks on the first and second vehicle in the last picture.

Sorry I have no pics.

Well spotted Erik! It seems like some more of the IS2 have straight top runs of the tracks.

Cheers, MartinD

Cheers guys!
Thanks for the reference!

More progress on this big baby.
I added the casting numbers...



I assembled the figures, but I am not 100% sure if I will use them. They do make a nice scale comparison though and should give the model some life so to say.
The surface of the cast turrets often had cracks due to the cast process and these were just crudely welded full. They seem to run randomly so I used a mini drill and carved some grooves which I filled in with stretched sprue and added some weld texture.



The tracks were just wonderful. The fit was super and the clean-up was not so bad.




when looking at photos, most of the vehicles seem to have extras on them such as logs and/or some tarpaulin.







The ''logs'' is from the woods and the tarpaulin rolls are done with wet tissue paper.

The tow cables are leftovers from a Trumpeter KV kit. Tamiya gives you string, but I didn't fancy that. I am not sure about the final positioning of things as right now the additional stuff kind of over powers the vehicle. I will look into it once I have some paint on it.



I guess I am done with the building part. Next step is painting.

I am sorry that I failed Dave, since it didn't turn out as a weekend build....sorry master.

Thanks for looking!

Siim

Excellent work Siim!

Everything on this one looks great, the tracks the weld seems. Id say go for the figs, but that is my personal opinion, I kind of like figs on every model.

As far as the extra gear over powering the vehicle, I think in any case it just make it appear more massive. Id say leave it like it is, it looks nice.

You have not failed! Still, you are achieving Olympic speed on this one my friend.

Looks fabulous Siim. I really like all of the extra details and the stowage/clutter. I'm with Dave on the figures, use them.

Most impressive.

The beast is looking good. The extra stowage does look more realistic. But in the end it's up to you. Kit looks great.

Great job Siim! I'm looking forward to seeing it painted and weathered - that should be fun.
