This kit is the Dust Models SSU KV-152/A “Big Joseph.” It’s a depiction of a Soviet Aerosan had World War II gone past 1945. The “Big Joseph” is the top portion of a KV-152 mounted atop a walker. Instead of feet it is equipped with skis.
It’s propelled using a rear mounted engine and powerful counter-rotating propellers. Using this enables it to ski over the frozen tundra with ease.
The resin that’s it’s made out of is exceptional: when you open the box you think it’s a plastic kit!
I built it straight out of the box. The only addition is the two figures. Painting was done using Floquil and Model Master paints. Weathering was done with Winsor Newton Oils.
