KV1; 1/48; Hobby Boss


At the same time I built the previous 251 I also built this KV1 Russian Tank also with worn down winter camouflage.

This Hobby Boss kit is not a hard build and looks quite nice, though the tracks are somewhat hard to work with, though that may be because I simply hate working with tracks in general; It was quite the challenge to paint them separately and put them in place at the end. I definitely don’t recommend this approach.

Like the 251 this one also had no after market added to it, though I do think the engine grills would profit from a nice PE set to replace the stock ones.

All in all it’s a fun kit that lends itself very well to all kinds of weathering.
