Re: Any issues with the Tamiya JS-2?

Response to Any issues with the Tamiya JS-2?

Great kit. You have the etch screens, so the other detail to fix (if you could be bothered) is the width of the vision slits in the commander's cupola - slightly to wide. As already mentioned, you might also want to blank off the sponsons, periscopes and turret ventilator. The wheels are fine dimensionally.

There has been some debate about the road wheel diameter in 1/35 - noticeably too small in the Dragon kits. The difference between Tamiya's IS-2 and 3 wheels is fractional, even trivial. Measurements of actual vehicles differ slightly accounting for the difference between the Tamiya IS2 and 3 measurements. If I had no nit-pick the surface details of the Tamiya IS-3 wheels have slightly more finesse than the IS-2 (IMO).
