After a few marathon sessions, I managed to get some paint flying and I finished up my first GB entry, it's my Tamiya JSII. Anyone who has this kit will readily agree with me that this is one gorgeous little kit, and hat's off to Tamiya, this is a jewel. I cannot wait to get my hands on the Matilda.
Anyhow, here are a few pics of my JSII, finished in all my usual methods, and I am greatly enjoying all the GB entries Lads, keep 'em coming;
As usual, all comments and/or feedback are more than welcomed, and thank you in advance for taking the time to look.
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.

This green monster is just stunning, it conveys all the power and menace of the real thing!
Imagine being in a fox hole in Berlin amongst the rubble and destruction and mayhem armed only with a k98 and a panzerfaust and a geriatric volksturm guard for company and support when this THING! comes around the corner! I'd be ripping the white undies off and waving them in the air as quick as possible before they involuntary changed colour!
Very well done Pat, I look forward to seeing what else you have in store for us.
Congrats on the JS-2 I like very much. To be honest with you some things look a bit out of place to me like the blue fuel drum, the replaced (?) muzzle brake, the red gun travel lock and the extremely rusted tools but nothing serious after all when talking of personal tastes. In exchange I realize a much appreciated improvement on your styleregarding the painting of the running gear which looks heavier and more consistent to my eyes. One more point to you.
Okay you passed the finish line once already, so please go back to the starting point and pass it again with that german turtle you showed up here some weeks ago.
well another IS II down and more incoming, congrats on the finish of this beasty, i hope mine comes even just a little bit close which would do me fine...
Love the chipping and restrained look on the gun barrel, the tracks look neat also. But as the guys have mentioned not sure on the Blue tank, as for the travel lock, i remember Spence having done the same colour and then changing due to the thinking that they wouldn't be primer red. But hey i like it, and as they say as long as you do, that's whats counts.
Absolutly stunning job, Pat. That┤s what I call a piece of art. Wonderful paintjob.
Love the colorful touches (the blue fuel tank, the rusty gun lock and the yellow whatever). That┤s an steering wheel on the right shelf? looks exactly like my old Alfa Romeo┤s wheel!
You do such a great job in bringing these kits to life...I just want to look at it over and over again. Another beauty my friend. I to am going to launch into the Matilda as soon as I can get my hands on one. Cant wait to see what you do with that one!
