Pz.Kpfw KV-1 756 (r) Trumpeter 1/35


Recommended Posts

I persented here, something from my archive, photos of the KV-1 tank model modified by the German army. The original Soviet construction armed with a 75mm German cannon and a commaner´s  tower from the PzKpfw IV  the KV tank looks interesting.

Great modelling of an unusual subject. 

Wouldn't have wanted to operate a real one: 88 gunners would probably have filled the silhouette full of AP before they saw the German markings, particularly if it was moving straight toward them from behind.

Cool build👍. Have to say the 75 really suits the KV1. Not many convertions work but this just 'looks right'

Did this exist or is it a what if?

looks great either way 👍


Yes it did.  The German army reused a lot of allied vehicles and guns in all theatres.

 

Not sure it was so common the other way round.

 

Cheers,

Now THAT track sag has been overdone. Yours looks much better, Milan. 🙂

 

You made a very interesting model of an interesting subject. Good work!
