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.
