Nothing wrong with You Tube but probably is some form of Non-Tankers Rivet Counter ban.

Nice video wsn123!

That really was a neat video; thank you very much for sharing it. I never realized how rough the welds and castings were on the tank, nor how filthy the inner side of the rear fuel tanks get from the exhaust. I think you'd need about THREE smoke units on a model to try and match all the exhaust smoke that thing puts out!

Over fueling during a cold start I think produces the white smoke, probably want to look at the glow plugs or turn the motor over a bit longer before hitting the start button [&:]

Thanks for the video!
Having just listened to clips of both I would say they're pretty close....

Yes, both are engines of some kind, indeed

Just compare idling sound such with idling sound from a tamiya such as found here:

vs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...sRWzJ8Ft0&t=34


...and it couldn't be the sound of a JS-2, since Tammy put into the JS-2 the same MFUs previously used inside the KV1 and the KV2... and they don't share the same engine sound, definitely.

The difference isn't really great enough to warrant a whole new mfu, they both use v2 v-12 diesels. Slightly different models in each granted but the difference isn't huge. As far as inaccuracies got a slightly different engine sound isn't the end of the world.

At 700+ euro selling price I hardly find acceptable they couldn't flash the JS-2 MFU with a new set of sounds (some JS-2 in working order can be still found in the world).... but that's personal.
After they put out the 'supersherman' I have no faith in tammy's care for details anymore...

I think Tamiya out-did themselves when they engineered the Pershing kit. That same team either wasn't retained or they didn't live up to their next kit.

Also, the JS-2 has a different speaker than the KV tanks and I think that's enough of a difference in sound to allow the same electronics to be used.

I'll wait and see if the JS comes down in price. What an awesome tank and kit!

Or you may need only one of these....
