  1. Hi, This is a 1:35 model, the KV-1 russian heavy tank. This is Tamiya KIT no. 35066. I made it as movable model. Additional parts are the Friulmodel tracks, towing cables, engine grill, saw. At the bottom I added a short video how does the model ride. Constructive criticism is encouraged
  2. As PST KVs are very hard to find I'm left with the question as featured in the topic. Which kit should I buy to build a better 1/72 model of 1941 or 1942 KV-1C - one of the Trumpeter new tools or the old ESCI/Italeri one? There are very few reviews over the web and all three tools (even the PST one) are mostly appraised. So what are your opinions about the abovementioned kits ? Cheers Michael
  3. Hi folks, long time no see, I mean, post... First of all, pardon me for the fictitious marking on the turret, It's totally incorrect, both historically and politically. The base also doubles as storage. Critics and suggestions are welcome, Cheers!
  4. Season's Greetings one and all. I seem to be on a bit of a streak at the moment, not quite two weeks following my Panzer IV, I've managed to turn out another piece of classic Tamiya armour. If I can keep it up, I should be able to get another two models finished before the year is out. Today I present the 1/35 KV-1 Model.1942. Enjoy... Another fine piece of Tamiya engineering. From first to last instruction step was the total of an evenings work. This model was a second-hand kit from my local hobby shop. The only addition I made was to replace the gun barrel with a metal one from Aber. Much to my surprise, its former owner had thrown away the single piece tracks and replaced them with a set of Fruilmodel metal tracks. The tracks took a total of two evenings' work to assemble. A rather relaxing task if I do say so myself. Weld seams were replicated with a bead of Vallejo Plastic Putty (in the tube) run around top of the turret and around the added-on armour. The model was pre-shaded with Tamiya Black Green, Olive Green and NATO Green which were all blended together with a light coat of IJA Green. After both decals were on and sealed, the tank received an overall filter/wash of yellow-green to warm up the colour and give the white decals a bit of an aged look. The tracks were painted Dark Iron and dirtied up with MIG Dry Mud and Dark Mud pigments as was the lower hull and wheels. The wheel rims were painted with Humbrol Metalcote Gunmetal and polished to a high sheen as these would be constantly worn on the tracks. The spare tracks were treated with Blacken It and Dark Mud (does double duty for dirt and rust) for a rustier, disused look. The machine guns were replaced with brass tube and painted accordingly. The radio antenna was sourced from an old g-string... a guitar g-string that is. Overall, I kept this one relatively simple as far as armour goes. Thanks for looking Regards, ANS
  5. Hello, I'd like to introduce you one really old model I just finished recently. I've added aluminium barrel and Eastern Express tracks. Was really struggling with the tracks. They were falling apart pretty much every couple minutes while working on the rest. I'm not happy with them, but still better than rubber crap inlcuded in the kit. I've also had problems with decals. I think it was due to the age of the kit (42 years old!) and they haven't come off the decal sheet even after good 10 minutes spent in water. Finally I've managed to put on the small one instead of "For Stalin", which I wanted to put on. Plus it silvered a bit. Anyways, there's the result: Thanks for any advices and such. Bart.
  6. Built for the "Less than a tenner" group build. Build thread.
  7. Build 1 & 2 Because the only difference in the kits are the turrets, I'm combining two builds into one thread. I know I've already built them in the photos, but don't worry, that's just to show that they're meant to be snap together kits. There's still a lot of work to do even if the part count is quite low =D Price: £2.99 each from Antics.
