I finished one of my JS-2 tanks today while watching something work-related.
- not a lot of flash, but lots and lots of sprue marks to file off.
- I had to cut some of the interior road wheels to make them fit.
- Instructions are mostly clear in retrospect than on first pass.
- Molding is fairly rough.
This isn't terrible for a Soviet tank, though - it does seem appropriately rough but strong. I'll be much more ready to deal with the annoyances on my second tank. Still, I paid about half as much for this tank and that might be showing in the roughness of the model.
Here it is.
Next to my Trumpeter models Tiger II:
The size seems about right - the Tiger II was taller, longer, wider, etc.
But something about 4 spare external gas tanks screams "victory!" doesn't it? I'll put it with my Tiger II, assemble the other, and then begin to think about painting.
