Looks good and seems to cover late features, two ventilators as seperate parts not moulded on and both exaust options, turned barrel but with plastic muzzle brake.

Trumpeter SU-152

Yeah, looks very nice. They've given us the right split-link tracks, and including both exhaust options and separate ventilators means you can do a pre-August 1943 version as well as the post-August version with the ventilators, or a fall/winter 1943 production example with the armored exhausts.

The barrel and muzzle brake look good, but I think I'll probably still use the Aber barrel...that brass muzzle brake is gorgeous.

looks good, but that boxart...

...someone could have told the artist that there is a difference between the SU-152 and the ISU-152

I thought Trumpeter were bringing out an early and Bronco were bringing out a late? Stevie.

Stevie, that was what they told us. Judging from the sprue shots however, you can build an SU-152 from pretty much any production period from the Trumpeter kit. The main variations were the addition of the roof ventilators in August 1943, and the armored exhausts in September. There are a couple different types of road wheels evident in photos, but those weren't tied to a particular production period.

I haven't seen the Bronco kit so I can't comment yet.

That will help so much in the building of a thoroughly destroyed monster. I wonder where all this info was when all of us were crying out for decent interior photos and plans? A truly evil looking and brutal beast much like Sauron's creatures would have made.

Correct track type ???

April 10 2012, 6:40 AM 

from the very few pictures i have seen so far, to me the tracks look like being the older and WIDER Omsh type and not the narrow type introduced with the KV-1S hull/running gear and COMMONLY USED also on the SU-152 and KV-85.

Any info on that from somebody having better eyes ??

Best Regards, Franz

PS :
Which brings up a second question :
Was the narrow track type as used on the KV-1S based machines the same as used with the IS based chassis ???
At least for the time frame of WWII.
(just asking for necessary replacement)

great news..

But the Bronco offering is what I'll get because of the added interior. Figures too, I was gathering pics and drawings to scratch the interior. Will make for a perfect wreck. Made my day.
