This 1/35 scale assembly kit recreates the Russian Heavy Tank KV-2, a heavier variant of the KV-1 (Item 35372). The Russian Heavy Tank KV-2 was developed and produced at the same time as the KV-1 chassis, but it incorporated a massive, boxy turret equipped with a 152mm howitzer. Although its weight caused frequent machinery failure during the early part of the German-Soviet War from June, 1941, it’s also recorded that one KV-2 single handedly held up one German division, for a few days. The KV-2 concept also played a role in the development of heavy self-propelled guns such as the JSU-152.
• 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit.
• Road wheels are no-rib types which were seen on the KV-2 and early KV-1 models, plus return rollers with rubber rims.
• Features large-diameter idler wheels which were equipped with the early and middle production models. (The KV-1 model has small-diameter late production type.)
• The massive turret with 152mm howitzer is box-type assembly, and its surface such as armor plate and weld lines are authentically depicted.
• Main gun barrel has a realistic rendering of rifling near the muzzle.
• The lower and upper hulls, and tracks are the same as the ones of the KV-1 kit.
• Assembly type tracks feature one-piece straight sections and recreate upper run “sag”.
