Review by Terry Ashley

This book in the excellent Model Detail Photo Monograph series covers in great detail the IS-2/2M Soviet tank of WWII.

While small in size, measuring 8 3/8” x 6” (213mm x 153mm) and with just 48 pages the book is packed with super close up photos of all those details modellers really love.

The first couple of pages have a short technical description of the vehicle with the remaining pages devoted to the photos with captions and text in Polish and English with the photos split evenly between colour and B&W.

Almost every part of the vehicle is covered in great detail with multiple pages devoted to each sub section with the only area not shown being the engine.

The hull walk around has extreme close-up photos of virtually every part of the vehicle with overhead shots of the engine deck and details of the running gear and tracks.

The turret is covered in the same manner with superb detail shots including interior details with the photos supplemented by a few line drawings and again show every part of the turret to great effect.

Below are a few sample pages that best illustrate the detailed images.

Sample Pages

A superb photo reference on the IS 2/2M and if you only want a single modelling reference then this would easily be the one as the photos are simply superb and answer any questions on the vehicles features.

Highly recommended.

Model Detail Photo Monographs are distributed by AirConnection Canada.
Thanks to ROSSAgraph for the review book.
