Zvezda 1/100 KV-1 & KV-2 - Completed.

Recommended Posts

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.

All the parts have been cleaned up and I've cut down the moulded in tow shackles so I can add my own made out of wire. Both turrets are now glued and filled with Mr. Surfacer.

Shackles added front and rear as well as the hull machine guns. I cut off the plastic rungs on the KV-2 turret and replaced them with copper wire.

Primed and ready for painting :) I've drilled out the KV-1's barrel and drilled view holes in the periscopes.

I pre-shaded them today, followed by a few coats of a custom green. After post shading I gave them a few coats of Humbrol Clear. I should be able to get some washes done tomorrow.
