A pretty interesting combo, but only one question: why isn't the JS-2 offered with appropriate shell damage?

Frank, not sure if you're being serious or not, but it's certainly true from photo evidence, that even if a JS-2 hasn't been hit by any shell fire, the ends of the track guards always seem to have been well battered on any example that's been in combat use, so that it is only on models and preserved examples that they are straight. Manufacturers rarely if ever include damaged parts, but in the example of this tank it would seem to make sense, perhaps as an option.
