Hi, im about to begin building a DML JSU-152 and JS-2m in Chinese Korean War markings. i know the wheels are undersized, so is there a way to fix that? I have Eduard sets for both kits, Voyager gun barrel for the Js-2, RB models barrel for the JSU-152 for better detail. and im also wondering if these were left in 4bo green or painted in some other green. any help would be appreciated

Hi Jonathan,

Here are some photos from Chinese Tank Museum. You could find the JS-2 is early type.

I believe Cookie Sewell did a review of the JSU 152 3'n 1 and he used .02 styrene to fix the height issue. I think the review is buried somewhere in Missing Lynx.

go to Neil Stokes site:

It wont help with Chinese colors but it will defiantly help making a more accurate IS/ISU

As far as I remember, Neil Stokes states that the undersizing of the wheels is close to neglictable.
The heigth problem is far more important but quite easily corrected.
I don't know if the tanks were repainted but their delivery being recent (communist China : end of 49, beginning of the Korean war : july 50), I don't think so.
