Interesting, the Uralmash-102 was a prototype proposed for mass production in the 1944-45 period but was cancelled with the war's end. Would have proven to be an interesting weapon system. drawbacks and all. A credible "what-if" for modelers tired of JS-2s etc.

Really nice work on a rarely seen vehicle! Frank's "what-if" comment got me wondering if this might work in a post apocalypse setting.

Only if it was a recent "post-apocalyptic" based at a former Soviet testing ground on some abandoned base. Or an armour museum. With good restorers. And lots of parts. I do like the idea, though, as it is an interesting beast of a vehicle.

Matt,

Splendid weathering and paint distressing. And I see those tiny chips with the rust hidden behind the exhaust pipe! Great work!
