Zvezda, 1/35 scale
by Brett Green


When Tamiya sent their brand-new 1/35 scale ISU-152 for review, I knew that I would have to build it straight away.

However, I had a number of after-market accessories for the old Zvezda kit squirelled away in my accessory drawers. It seemed a shame to waste these, so I decided to build both models side by side.



Eduard's older photo-etched set plus Aber's exquisite metal barrel helped enahnce the 1990s vintage Zvezda kit. Thanks to Creative Models Australia, I also added workable Modelkasten tracks. There was a bit of old-fashioned scratch building involved too.

You can see some photos of the model before paint by following this link.



The construction of both models featured in a detailed articles in Issue 45 of Model Military International magazine. This issue also included a "Think Tank Lite" reference piece with some background and historical photos.



Painting and finishing the Zvezda kit will be covered in a Feature in Issue 50, due out on 6 May.
