Here is my kit i will be using for the BSC the base for this will be Tamiyas excellently moulded kit a metal barrel a small helping of PE and some fruils general idea for this will be a what if situation if the war had carried on into the later stages of 1945 and the russian had brought this to the battle table ;) hopefully you all like my choice

Should be fun. Will you have to add a piece to the house once completed? ;D

Ooo I love the look of Russian tanks. There's something about the lines that inspire sci-fi.

Re: JS 3 Berlin 1945

Heres a small update progress is slow as there has been a lot of preparation to do before i can start putting the kit together the molded fenders were sawn off then i had to add the angled hull armour which the fenders covered i used plasticard sheet for this then filler was added to hide any gaps weld beads added with Magiscuplt textured with Tamiya Putty mixed with glue then i made a start on all the torch cut edges using a a sharp blade then use glue to smooth over i have decided to loose 2 road wheels on the right side so i have lowered the suspension by 50% to get it to lean a little ;) more soon

Re: JS 3 Berlin 1945

Looking good so far. One has to love the early IS-line of tanks... :D

Perhaps a stupid question, but I'm not entirely sure why you cut into the front and the fenders? Was the kit not accurate or...?

Re: JS 3 Berlin 1945

As promised here is the long awaited update :-[ the scene is set Berlin 1946 the Soviets release a beast into the unruly streets due to the close combat any piece of sheet metal is used to up armour there tanks well thats the idea anyways 8) lol i have used parts from the spares box to add a bit of detail side armour was made from scrap pieces of PE fret and styrene hopeyou chaps like the progress still have some areas to attend to then it will be prime time ;)
