This is a 1/35 scale plastic assembly model kit of the Russian Heavy Tank JS3 Stalin which fought intense battles against German tanks during WWII. Developed in the latter stages of WWII, the JS3 was named after Russian leader Joseph Stalin. Not only postwar Russian tanks, but tank development from other countries saw their heavy tank designs being influenced by the JS3's impressive style. The JS3's low silhouette, cast turret, and rough textured surface have been richly reproduced. In addition, parts such as the tank's engine room grille, machine gun, cast iron wheels and suspension area have a precise finish. One commander figure included.
