KV-1 “October 25th”

Kit / Model  

Soviet KV-I Heavy Tank 1942

Manufacturer  

Trumpeter

Item Code  

00359

Scale  

1/35

Description  

This is a 1/35 Trumpeter Russian 1942 Heavy Cast Turret Tank, with PE Detail set, alum gun barrel, workable track links, and dry transfers instead of decals.

The separate track links are user friendly and helped to be shorten the construction time, but the kit price is quite high.

The model was airbrushed with enamel Black Matt as base color and then was painted Dark enamel Matt Green.

Weathering was done using filters, oils, pigment powders, and the mud effect was done with a mixture of dark dust pigment, brick powder and matt varnish applied with a very old and worn brush.

Congrats, your KV is a beauty. Good job in the hull, these mud are real, for sure! I like the monochrome green and the very subtle weathering.
You are right, the indi tracks are very expensive, but the Trumpeter kit itself are very cheap LOL.

Take care
