Tamiya 1/35 JSU-152

Known by Red Army soldiers as "Big Hunter" or "Glorious Beast," the JSU-152 was able to take out German Panther and Tiger tanks.

As expected, Tamiya has followed up 2007’s JS-2 heavy tank with the JSU-152, the Red Army’s heavy-hitting, self-propelled gun based on the same chassis. The 152mm-toting behemoth has long been a favorite of Eastern Front modelers, but Tamiya’s kit trumps older offerings from Dragon in terms of accuracy, and Zvezda in ease of construction.
