    Klimenti Voroshilov with big turret - aka KV-2

    Are you going to model the small turret and give a choice of KV-1 or KV-2?

    Hi NOBI,

    very impressive!

    I´ve just received the files from Papertigerarmament to scale them up, but now i will wait, and scale down:grin:.(please not so many small parts, or i´ll get some problems in 1/48:razz:)

    i like it. i do feel, however, that the mantle is a bit too wide. also, the outer cannon mantlet should have the left edge flat, right edge steep sloped. i believe yours is the other way around. the thing i like about the huge turret is you can put all sorts of patriotic slogans on the sides. keep us posted. cheers, c.b.

    Certainly for the KV-1/KV-2 - I'm not sure about the KV-85 though. There were quite a lot of detail differences between the early and later running gear. I guess it wouldn't be noticeable in small scales though.

    I think the problem with the 150mm gun mantlet is that the front plate is too wide. The mantlet assembly was almost square. The side plates of the mantlet were semicircular with curved edges. Check out the KV-2 images on site.

    I hope you didn't take my comment as criticism of your approach. I was trying to make the point that at Nobi's 1/35 scale the detail differences between the KV-85 and KV-1 would be noticeable. The whole KV-85 saga seems rather confused to me. Certainly the early production KV-85s were reworked KV-1S
    hulls. One wonders how many new production hulls made up the KV-85 production run or whether a fair number of them were recycled KV-1.

    The offset of the roadwheels on the heavy Soviet tanks is, as you say, caused by torsion bars running across the hull. The German approach was to point the swing arms in opposite directions so the roadwheels lined up. There is supposed to be a consequence of having offset roadwheels - the tank tends to pull towards the roadwheel set which lags.

    The KV-2 design was fairly conservative compared to some of the other KV designs. The KV-4 designs were around 90 tons.

    not at all. you can get away with inaccuracies easier in 1/72 scale than 1/35 (read; "artistic license"). the build photo looks great. the KV vehicles were fairly basic in their design and so should make a good looking and relatively uncomplicated paper model in any scale.

    Big gun...KV-2

    This is a picture of 1/35 scale KV-2's beta build. Everything go very well, more work on wheel but worth to do. Kit will available soon.
