Yeah I saw they were part of dragon. There is a deal on for the JS1 and JS2 for $44 for the 2 of them and was wondering if it was worth it.
Those sound like "Yellow Box" deals - if they are, then these are re-boxed older Dragon or Imperial kits, with GEN 1 figures and occasional details thrown in (small photoetch fret or one piece DS tracks). Those kits go for around $30 on their own and while already considered a "Value package" - $44 for 2 is even more so...
I'm thinking of picking some up myself - could you send a link to the "twofer"?

Cyber-Hobby white boxes are limited runs, they are also much more detailed than "Smart Kit" and a little more detailed than the regular Dragon kits... I have Raketenwerfer built on PzIV chassis and the box is literally packed to the gills with sprues - the Photo-etch fret is huge in replacing details, but every PE part has plastic cast alternative (for the most part). The white boxes are great deal for the price, considering the subjects they cover - buying a white box and then reselling it after the supply runs out 6 months later is an insentive enough (but they are great to build)
I dont really care about the figures as I only do the armor itself.
Translating modern scale model language - it's not a twofer but an optional kit, where you get to build either JS-1 or JS-2, not both side by side though... Great thing about those kits, though, is that they give you enough leftover parts for diorama clutter and debris, destroyed tank bits or pieces for future kitbashing projects. Who knows, you might even have enough to build a turret for the one you do not choose.
As long as you are aware that you are still getting only one kit, the fact that you get IS-1 (I like the rus spelling) for $40 is a great value...
Meh, thought it would have been 2 so wont get it. If it was 2 I could have delt with the individual track links however for 1, not happening. I am working on my King Tiger from dragon and the individual links annoyed me.
I didn't mean to say that I manage to make stuff that looks better than that - it's just with a myriad of techniques and processes, I always manage to screw something up and call it an experiment after the fact... Then I learn valuable lessons of salvaging or reversing my mistakes
I'm certainly at the "mistakes" period of my scale modeling, which I do in turn consider art.
