Making of the RUSSIAN CAPTURED TANK : GERMAN PANZERKAMPFWAGEN KV-2 754(r) TANK (TRUMPETER)
|I made this Russian captured KV-2 tank.|
| Whether it had really existed, 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 with silver.
| The figure is from tank soldier rest set of Tamiya.
| It was difficult to make the wrinkles of the sleeve from the
epoxy putty. 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 story house.
| It is easily assembled, not so many parts in the Trumpeter's
KV series, I can recommend this model to all AFV fans. It's good practice
for me to coat a big area this time.
