The KV-2. Once the house-turreted monster of the Soviet forces, now converted and used by the German war-machine.
This KV-2 kit from Warlord Games is a great kit, and once you put it next to another tank (such as this Panzer IV), you begin to realise just why the Germans struggled in their first encounters of this behemoth. Its turret is the size of a small tank, and it houses a fearsome Heavy Howitzer. If that wasn’t enough, it also has three MMGs. Oh I’m going to have fun with this…
The tank didn’t need much work to be made into a German tank. The crew member was replaced with one from the early war tank crew set from Warlord Games. Some stowage, from the German Vehicle stowage set, was scattered around the tank. And that is pretty much that. Most of the work comes with the paint scheme, and I’ll enjoy painting this iconic heavy tank.
Both these models will be painted in standard German Grey, hopefully within the next few weeks. If all goes well, they may see their first battles next week.
