1/35 Tamiya JS-3 Stalin Tank
November 4, 2016 in Armor
Here’s one fresh off the work bench. I just finished up the pastel weathering. It has been built for a little while, but was lacking the final details.
It has Fruilmodel tracks, and I fabricated tow cables from copper wire. I used “ultra bright” bare metal foil to cover the headlight.
Other than that it’s pretty much built right out of the box. I built the commander but I haven’t painted the figure yet. It was painted in a single green color using Model Master “Russian Armor Green”. Then I “dirtied” it up using Tamiya pastels.
I’m debating whether or not to remove a track link from each side. To me the track sag looks too extreme. I know that the Soviet and German tanks had “loose” tracks, but as an old tanker, I would be afraid of tossing the track if this was real.
What do you all think ???
