1/72 Scale Trumpeter KV-1 Soviet Heavy Tank

The KV-1 was the standard Soviet heavy tank at the time of the German invasion in May of 1941.  While its 76 mm gun was pretty big for the time, the T-34/76 was equipped with the same gun which eventually lead many in the Soviet hierarchy to wonder why a heavy tank shouldn’t carry something even bigger.  Still, and excellent design and one which was initially superior to anything the Germans could field.  Trumpeter has issued a nice little kit here.  There is room for the modeler to make a few improvements, but no difficulties in assembly and the level of detail looks good.
