I have a few more shelf queens I might be able to complete if life permits
because Pat is very correct and we have time until late august to finish a couple of Tamiya kits perhaps.
After seeing Murat's and Pat's builds, I cannot hold myself to join our little Stalin-Mania here I suspect
others might follow soon because the new Tamiya JS-2 can be a popular subject. Well, on one hand, Murat worked hard to decrease (!!!) kit parts drastically by removing fenders, on the other hand, Pat worked hard to increase (!!!) kit parts dramatically with all those tiny details he added but me... just worked minimun to customice my model. No doubt I am laziest JS-2 modeller by now.
Regarding my build just two brief notes. First, most my effort went on correcting track sagging a bit simply to get a different image of a JS2 compared to the usual heavily sagged track tanks. Well I guess that is a detail hard to notice but we -modellers- tend to spend our working time on many things no one realice after all.
. Second, after building the Die-Cast Hobby Master JS-2 some years ago now I can feel the difference. The Hobby Master thing is not bad actually, but the Tamiya jewel is much superior logically.
Anyone else joining the Stalin-Mania? Hopefully we will have some other guys to enjoy different finishing styles which is always educative.
Thanks for looking.
