IS-7 Prototype by Martin Red Kováč
This is the Trumpeter kit I bought last year but didn’t know how to paint it. At first I wanted to make it a quick out of box build but we all know how this tends to turn out.
I used Voyager PE for some details and soldered brass sheets to build the side stowage bins so I could damage them, making good contrast between the sheet metal and thick armor. I also did some modifications to the kit to make it look like what I assume was the first prototype, which didn’t have the two starship like machine guns pointing back from the turret and other features.
Of course, I need to thank some friends who guided me along the build with their good ideas and constructive criticism. You know who you are 😉
If you like the result at least a little, keep an eye on Tanker Magazine 🙂
