1/72 Scale Trumpeter KV-2 Soviet Heavy Tank

The KV-2 was basically a huge turret with a 152 mm howitzer mounted on a KV-1 hull.  The Germans had few weapons which could defeat the KV-2, and there are numerous stories of KV-2s holding up entire German armored columns when they were used properly and fought stubbornly.  Trumpeter’s kit is a good representation of the type, it goes together well and fit is good.  Most modelers will want to shave off the grab handles and mud guard bracing and replace them as these are molded solid, but this is an easy improvement.
