The KV-1's Bigger Brother
In December 1939 the KV-1 was officially adopted by the Soviet military; it was followed by the KV-2, a heavier design based upon the KV-1 chassis, but upgunned to a 152mm howitzer with the intention of breaking enemy strongholds; in order to accomodate the larger gun, the KV-2 was given a remarkably tall turret. Around two hundred were produced, and supply to the military began in July 1940. The following June, Nazi Germany invaded and the KV-2 - while suffering a number of breakdowns - took part in Soviet resistance against the invaders, their 152mm guns and impressive survivability enabling some amazing feats, helping stem the tide.

About the Model
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.

Packaging


This model captures the mammoth KV-2 form in style, from the tall, boxy turret to realistic surface textures and detailing.


A marking option is included to recreate a KV-2 captured by the German Wehrmacht and given a winter camouflage makeover.


This image shows the massive 152mm gun, which includes rifling detail in the muzzle section for that extra layer of realism.


The rough cast surfaces of the armor are captured in style. Mesh sections of the external air intake are recreated with fine molding.


Depictions of the wide KV-2 tracks utilize single-piece straight sections and give a realistic rendering of upper run 'sag.'


This kit comes with two figures: a full body commander and a crew torso; use them to add yet more life to your finished masterpiece.
