This is the tenth model I completed, and it shows a SU-152 self-propelled artillery vehicle, in service under the Soviet Red Army during the Second World War. I built it from August 2013 to January 2015.
I can work on this model only few weeks a year, but everytime I add always something new to it! This time I "weather" it in order to give it a more realistic look and I paint some additional details.
The Soviet WW2 tank camo are painted almost always with an uniform (and boring!) green. However, it's quite easy to vary a bit its color and to give our model more "life".
The idea of building a Soviet WW2 "bad guy" had been in my mind for a while. Then I found this SU-152 kit on a shelf in a model shop and I bought it immediately!
The SU-152, in Russian "СУ-152" (acronym of "Самоходная Установка 152", Samokhodnaya Ustanovka 152, that is "152 mm Self-Propelled Unit") was a heavy self-propelled howitzer used by the Soviet Red Army during the Second World War.
