Morning everyone – I hope you are all well!
Here’s my completed build of the brand-new Tamiya 1/35 KV-2 ready for the next issue of Tamiya Model Magazine.
★This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 204mm, width: 95mm.
★The imposing form of the KV-2 is artfully captured in 1/35 scale.
★Features depictions of the rough cast turret surfaces and also weld lines.
★Various hatches can be assembled in open or closed position.
★Assembly type tracks feature one-piece straight sections, and offer realistic depiction of upper run ‘sag.’
★Comes with a full body commander figure, and a crew torso figure for installation in the hatch.
★Includes two marking options.
Other than a few stowage additions here and there, my kit was entirely built from the box, painted and weathered to look like a well-used machine. There are few areas I may touch-up, but as it stands it’s finished. One area that I am not happy with is the figures, each proving to be a real struggle to paint, especially the standing commander. I am planning to build a diorama around this model, so I will inevitably replace the figures, creating a scene in which the machine has been abandoned, a fat that befell almost every single of of those that hadn’t already been destroyed in combat!
I really enjoyed this kit and I look forward to its appearance in TMMI. I hope you like it too!
