Tamiya 1/35 JSU-152 was created by Andrew
Tamiya 35303 1/35 JSU-152

Added RB Model barrel and Friul metal Tracks.

Finished with Tamiya and Vallejo paint. Weathered with AK washes and Tamiya paint




















It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

That came out looking good Andrew. Certainly looks very menacing with that huge gun out the front. About 150mm or so wasn't it? Or 152mm, I can't remember which.
Either way, looks bloody good!

Looks fine as frog hair B)
You didn't say weather or not you were finished or not?????
Critique:
#1 I would at least hang those cable ends over behind the fuel drums so they don't fall off the rear and drag on the ground.
#2 Second thing it could use more pin wash to bring out the seams and raised components.

Sorry but i'm one of those evil rivet counters :ohmy: :lol:

That's not rivet counting Tony, that's constructive critiquing and that's the kind of stuff I personally like to see. It's the other stuff I don't like, you know the "oh that's the wrong air filter spanner for March 1944 they didn't get used until April 1944" that kind of things is unwelcome on a finished model, just my opinion anyway. Your comments actually help to improve the skills of the modeller which is what it's all about in the end.
Andrew, nice stuff, I'm not sure but isn't this the first "finished" thing we've seen of yours? If not at all at least in a long time?

I was thinking the same thing, although he does have 3-4 tanks that are painted so I dare say we'll see another few over the line in the next few weeks.

Thanks TL B)

Mostly finished. I'll be doing more weathering on it once I have the diorama base sorted. I'm planning on having this, another JSU-152 and a GAZ-AA or a lend lease Studebaker crossing the bridge I started several months ago.

I'll reposition the tow cables ;) I'm planning to have tank riders on the rear deck, so will work around that.
