one minor detail

Response to very nice paintwork, 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.
