Tamiya, 1/48 scale
|by John Hoffman
This started out as a box stock build of the excellent Tamiya KV-1.
I spent some time thinning out all of the Fender edges and brackets
for better scale.
I bent the fenders up a little to
add some character. But other than that the kit was built as
Everything was ready for paint when the KV-2 arrived at the Military
Change of plans.
I added brass grab handles, and
Weld seams on the turret / mantlet. The Hull was upgraded with a M.V.
products headlight and some solder for the wiring.
I used Tamiya & Vallejo acrylics, Humbrol enamels, oils and Mig
pigments to achieve the finish.
