Hello All;

After a few marathon sessions, I managed to get some paint flying and I finished up my first GB entry, it's my Tamiya JSII. Anyone who has this kit will readily agree with me that this is one gorgeous little kit, and hat's off to Tamiya, this is a jewel. I cannot wait to get my hands on the Matilda.

Anyhow, here are a few pics of my JSII, finished in all my usual methods, and I am greatly enjoying all the GB entries Lads, keep 'em coming;









As usual, all comments and/or feedback are more than welcomed, and thank you in advance for taking the time to look.

Cheers, Pat

I just think that you should have filled pin marks on the tracks.

Pat:

Your IS-2 looks superb. Very nice finish.

One minor thing: I believe that the front of the IS-2 turret/gun mount was actually bolted to the rest of the turret, not welded. That is why you sometimes see IS-2s with the front of the turret dislodged (e.g., Squadron/Signal Publications Soviet Panzers in Action ) the bolts have sheared, and the gun mount falls off. It looks like you have added a weld bead around the turret there, which would not be appropriate if this is the case.

Check with Neil Stokes; he would know for sure.

Hello Pat: particularly taken by the restrained chipping and staining on the gun barrel. Very nice touch. Cheers, Ralph.

Great ..... great ........... so great .....

The accesories in the fenders are a really atractive plus. The painting level, as usually, outstanding. The micro painting details ..... first class.... the chippings ... perfect

Your copycat

G'day Pat.
This green monster is just stunning, it conveys all the power and menace of the real thing!
Imagine being in a fox hole in Berlin amongst the rubble and destruction and mayhem armed only with a k98 and a panzerfaust and a geriatric volksturm guard for company and support when this THING! comes around the corner! I'd be ripping the white undies off and waving them in the air as quick as possible before they involuntary changed colour!
Very well done Pat, I look forward to seeing what else you have in store for us.
Cheers mate!
Alan.

Pat,

Congrats on the JS-2 I like very much. To be honest with you some things look a bit out of place to me like the blue fuel drum, the replaced (?) muzzle brake, the red gun travel lock and the extremely rusted tools but nothing serious after all when talking of personal tastes. In exchange I realize a much appreciated improvement on your styleregarding the painting of the running gear which looks heavier and more consistent to my eyes. One more point to you.

Okay you passed the finish line once already, so please go back to the starting point and pass it again with that german turtle you showed up here some weeks ago.

Good work amigo.
Lu
