Now Im 17 years old, and I will put some pictures of my progress in this cool hobby time to time
So, I have started ISU-152 in 1/72 scale from Zvezda, and just finished IS-2 from Zvezda in 1/72 too
IS-2: I made numbers on back of turreett, I made welded places by my self and some more things





My started ISU-152: ANd again... I made welded places, made metalic texture for armor, Now Im waiting for metal 152mm barrel







And most of all I am really happy about this 1/72 Modelcollect Soviet MAZ 7911 Heavy Truck
Its my first Modelcollects kit and at the moment i just love this company this truck is beast, just compare it to ISU-152
PS. i made little upgrade for cabs:






And I started to make diorama for my old made Pz.Kpfw.I Ausf.A

Hop You will like

Are you sure that IS-2 is 1/72 scale? It looks better than any 1/35 kit I've built! And that panzer 1 looks gorgeous!

Well, On box was written 1/72 here is IS-2 with 20cent

UPS, I forgot to tell you that Pz.Kpfw.I Ausf.A is in 1/35 (onliest, at the moment), but it is still small tank, in 1/35 its the same size like ISU in 1/72
I have 1/35 RFM M1A2 Abrams, old Tamiyas Chieftain and 1/48 Warrior, will be soon too

Hi Reinhards,
Firstly welcome & it is nice to see some builds from younger modellers enjoying the hobby!! I hope you enjoy which ever scale you decide to get into the most, or just build what ever model you look like the most regardless of scale!!

Some very nice work you have done there & yes the panzer 1 in 1/35 shows how small it was against your 1/72 jsu. Just a little trick I use when adding casting numbers maybe if use to you is to draw a line or use some tape to help keep them straight. Keep up the great work & hope you enjoy the hobby for many years to come!!

Looks like you've captured the true essence of the hobby: relax and simply enjoy what you're doing!

Hello!
I have pretty big progress over here, I finnally get my 1/72 152mm metal barrel

And, watching pictures of ISU-152 I found interesting thing on IS tank base, Its called BTT-1, in my opinion it looks very impressive So i bought ISU-122 from Zvezda (1/72 scale) and started...




That thing on the lightning lamps are made from zero too, I think at the moment that was the hardest thing to make. (sorry for my English, Im trying)

Hi!
Im back

Now i have started Zvezdas 1/100 IS-3 just for fun:


Started 1/72 Tiger 1. I think in future i will made a lot more 1/72 tanks from Zvezda, becouse thay are really good.


And most important is that i have started doing something on my Trumpeters 1/35 IS-4. I started it a long time ago, but stoped when +/- I had only tracks to do



Have a nice first Advent guys!

Welcome to Armorama Reinhards. You have done some rather nice 1/72 scale (The True Scale ) work. For you future information Armorama has a separate "forum" for those of us that prefer and like small scale models and it can be found HERE. Hope to see more of your fine small scale work in the future.

Cheers and Happy Building,
Jan

Clap clap clap,outstanding work in a really difficult scale, I guess that in this scale the big challenge is that the finished model
donīt look like a toy. The super detailing, the scratchbuilding and weathering that you achieve on these models make the difference and show us an enjoyable batch of miniatures.
Amazing work, you are a natural born modeller.
