Trumpeter Kliment Voroshilov , KV-1 "s ehranami", 1/35


Recommended Posts

Some years ago I had an intensive period of building tanks. One of them was the red army's KV-1 (after general Kliment Voroshilov). I especially liked the tank-like looks of the version in which additional metal plates had been attached to the turret with big bolts. This KV-1 type had the Russian nickname "s ehranami" or "with screens" in English. The red army ordered the additional metal plates to be attached to the KV-1's to make the turrets thicker against the efficient German tank guns.  The strongly sagging tracks were also typical of this tank giving it real badass looks.

 

I built the KV-1 from a good quality Trumpeter kit. To enhance the model I also bought tracks that consisted of separate links and an Eduard photoetch set for the engine grilles, etc. The only thing that caused a bit of trouble in modelling was attaching the slogan decals to the uneven turret sides full of bolts and holes. After a bit of swearing and patching I finally made it in my opinion quite well.

I think you'll probably find that this is the opinion of a lot of people; me included. 

In fact, very well rather than just "quite"! :goodjob:

The kit was ok. Maybe not of Tamigawa level, but I like the outcome.. There is no interior though.

 

Cheers
