Tamiya, 1/48 scale

by John Hoffman


This started out as a box stock build of the excellent Tamiya KV-1. I spent some time thinning out all of the Fender edges and brackets for better scale.

I bent the fenders up a little to add some character. But other than that the kit was built as supplied.


Everything was ready for paint when the KV-2 arrived at the Military Shoppe....

Change of plans.

I added brass grab handles, and Weld seams on the turret / mantlet. The Hull was upgraded with a M.V. products headlight and some solder for the wiring.


I used Tamiya & Vallejo acrylics, Humbrol enamels, oils and Mig pigments to achieve the finish.
