JS-3 model 1946
1 Attachment(s)
Hello planetarians!

I haven't posted anything here for about a year, but I'm still here =)

Few months ago my friend asked me to make him JS-3 model and I agreed.

It's old Tamiya model with Eduard PE, Aber barrel and Friulmodel wheels and tracks.

Tamiya kit is a mix of 1945 and 1946 models with a few critical mistakes and some easy-to-fix mistakes.

I didn't fix the critical mistakes - only guy who knows the subject can see them.

Also Eduard PE isn't good enough - some of details are oversized and some undersized, some - completely incorrect.

So, use reference photos and don't trust instruction.

Few pics before primer.

Hello Andrey,

It's great to see one you back on the boards. It has been a long time, my friend. Your work is good on the JS3 and I'll be looking forward to the painting.

Best regards,

Thanks Rick!

I'm really glad to come back!
JS will be simply green with some CM effects.

By the way - I have some progress on an old projects and started some new models.
I hope to post them soon.
