I have had a problem with the base colour I have been using for the IS-7. Conventional Russian tanks have been painted in European Green or Russian Armour Green. Neither really matches the green found on Russian tanks in WOT. I have decided to go with Drab Green which is much closer to the WG colour although not a perfect match. It was an easy change. However I have also decided to do the vehicle in the winter camo (I have always loved winter camo).
The construction is proceeding smoothly. The kit is excellent although I anticipate some issues with the gun barrel mantle shroud, More on that later .
