A models are great! Not too expensive, and quality is very good. I bought the ISU-152 and the IS-2 Stalin, which looks good next to the HM one. (I wanted to compare them, and I really like Russian heavies)
I got this from hongkong-models on eBay, who sells many S-Models products. It's a pre-built Trumpeter.
Other than one of the rear-facing turret machine guns being broken off, I love it.
I got one of those too, my paint is different, but it’s really well done like yours. It’s part of my “super heavies collection.” Parked next to the M103 and the Conqueror. Like all Russian designs, it has a bigger gun in a significantly smaller package, with a much lower silhouette than the other 2.
Arrived in yesterdays post. Hong-Kong to Houston 14 days. Free shipping is a big plus. So a two-week wait is nominal.
Overall pleased with detail of model. It appears sufficiently accurate for me when compared to reference profile images. You are correct, aferg. In 1/72, it is small. Guess they deemed them 'tankette' with reason.
