1/72 Scale Zvezda IS-2 Soviet Heavy Tank

The IS-2 is the Russian answer to the German King Tiger, but gets little recognition in the West.  Big and heavily armored, its 122 mm gun made it a match for any German panzer on the battlefield.  This is billed as a snap-together kit, but serious modelers universally use a little glue anyway just to be safe.  Don’t dismiss it because of the snap-together design, it is nicely detailed and the fit is spot on.  Test fit with caution though, the parts are designed to bind together and may be a little hard to separate when fully seated.  Build thread here: inchhighguy.wordpress.com/2019/11/22/zvezda-is-2-soviet-heavy-tank-build-in-1-72-scale/
