"Tiger Killer!!!" JTFM Enterprises 1:56 Scale Iosef Stalin II M
« on: January 16, 2010, 12:42:47 AM »
Mastered by Tony Ashcroft, this big, bad Soviet beastie is sure to strike terror in the hearts of any German tanker.



All we can say about it is that it's big, has a big gun, and dishes out a big punch!



I think there are some 50's pulp/post apocolyptic/WWW2 uses here.

Enjoy,

Jeff

Great looking model!

They were used to an extent post-war, some were supplied to Cuba after the Bay of Pigs prompting the US to send M103s to Guantanamo Bay during the Missile Crisis. I don't know for sure, but I believe they were retained in the Soviet arsenal for quite a time too, probably also with the North Koreans and Chinese too.

Always a good thing with soviet stuff, never thrown away, use it until it simply doesnt work anymore :)

Look at that damn monster of a turret!     :)


Jim hale, I built a 1/35 scale Chinese version in the 80's, based on research (can't remember any details now), so I know you are right. 

VERY nice, and perfect scale too.

I'll check them out.  I have  a box of German anti tank, mine throwers and rocket men (Thanks, Kampf Brian ;))needing a scenario.  That tank is one big, bad objective.
