RUSSIAN CAPTURED TANK : GERMAN PANZERKAMPFWAGEN KV-2 754(r) TANK (TRUMPETER)

HOME @Completed Works List

This time, I made this Russian captured KV-2 tank.
Whether it had existed really, I had given Zimmerit Coating which was German tanks characteristic point.
Painting was made two color camouflage of dark yellow and dark green which I referred from the Kursk battle's Ferdinand.
Since KV-2 was able to store only 36 shells in the car, they might have applied the spare shell rack on the back of the body. I painted the jerrican as the accent in gray since there were a lot of dark yellow parts on this body.
h had painted the intake vent net in the black, after that it was dry brushed in silver.
The figure is from tank soldier rest set of Tamiya.
It was difficult to make the wrinkles of sleeve from the epoxy patty. There was too much wrinkles, I suppose.
Since the crew turned around this huge turret by hand power, it must be hard work and it's tired very much. A German army might not have been able to remodel to an automatic turn system.
The total height is about 3.3m and it's more than the floor of two stories house.
It is easily assembled, not so many parts in Trumpeter's KV series, I can recommend this model to all AFV fan. It's good practice for me to coat big area this time.
