Russian Armor KV1 Heavy Turret 1942 (Trumpeter Kit)

Post by newnikonian on Wed Sep 05, 2012 9:36 pm

Greetings everyone,
Hi Team,
I have started my build Trumpeter KV1 Heavy Turret 1942. I am planning to depict the KV1 Late (Feb – Sep 1942). . Here are some progress pics. Please post your comments and Thanks in advance..

04 Aug 2012

Completed step1 and step 2


I have opened up the slot for headlight cable which I understand is wrong. Never realized that the correct one is the inner most slot. Need to plug this one open the next one about 5mm towards right.

I have the engine deck from the earlier build which does not have the dome. Earlier I thought I need to use the flat engine hatch cover but after going through 4BOGreen site, understand that the kit part is the correct version. Refer the pic. Below:


I am stuck at step 2. There seems to be an ugly gap running along the edge on one side while fixing the engine compartment area (part Q3). Hope I could finish the problem area ASAP and move along. I used Mr.surfacer 500 to fill the gap and waiting for it to dry. I will start with the wheels in the mean while.


06 Aug 2012

There has been some work done on my KV1





09 Aug 2012

Small update on my KV as well...



I think I might have to reduce the weld beads a bit |Sad


13 Aug 2012

Managed to prime and started with base coat.

I normally will not build like this. I will keep the tracks on the wheels. I thought of doing this way so that I get access to weathering the wheels better.






24 Aug 2012

Have some progress on my build. Completed base coat of Russian Green. Still wondering how to go about...
Whether to go for winter camo or just green with little bit of weathering....








I have completed the tracks and running wheels. Masked them and doing the winter wash using the hairspray technique. Now I realize all the extra effort of keeping the wheels and track separate is not worth the extra effort. I will post some more pics later....
Appreciate your feedback and comments.

Have a Great Day
Mukund
