Regarding the misalignment and flahs issues: they were also present on some parts of the kit I'm building: the 1942 version with the simplified welded turret. I guess that's to be expected from a kit that Trumpeter propbably produced more of than any other in their product line. Especially the sprues that are included in all variants of the kit. OTOH it's dirt cheap, so a little extra work is OK I think.

Well I did not expect to use so much putty and clean up that much, its every part you touch has something which needs to be addressed.
Checked the other KVs sprues (Heavy cast, small turret, 747r, lightweight & simplified) this one in particular has a ton of not aligned molds and parts which stuck to the mold before the plastic cooled off.
I do not mind working to get a good result, but in some cases it was a bit redicolous. Especially the bulges between the riveted engine deck, where annoying.

OK, that was not the case with my kit. You did a wonderful job fixing these issues!

If I may suggest these minor corrections (easy to fix): as per Neil Stokes' book, there should be only two lifting eyes on the transmission compartment roof plate, not four. The additional ones were added later, so the rear ones should be omitted.

The armoured shield in front of the bow machine gun and the collar around the antenna base should have each have a small square drain hole at the bottom, to prevent rain water to collect in those places.

Hi,
thank you, and honestly would not have solved it without trusty putty & sanding sponge. ; )

I found the engine deck bulge by closer inspection on one more kit the 754r has it unfortunately too. The wheels are ok. But next time fixing this issue should be easier.

Yes shure, a few pointed (KV group) out the lifting rings on the engine deck, went with the wrong later KV references since the KV-1E in Parola is way too modified in my opinion and most pictures are kind of blurry (Andreas Larka site)

Thanks for the drainage hint, on most pictures it looked like parts which deteriorated from rust.
Should be an easy fix.

I found other little details if it matters to you:
1. the swing arms should have each a round rubber bumper on the bottom. Pretty easy as well.
2. one MG mount has flat bolts, where there should be conical ones (Masterclub has an amazing range of resin bolts, perfect for Russian armor, waiting for them to arrive)
3. there should be three U shaped "hooks" on the rounded armored backside of the engine deck
4. There should be a small hole on each of the movable round periscopes

Best & thanks for the hint!

Jean-Christophe Zeus
Thanks for pointing these out: I was only aware of #4. Can you point to references about #1 and #3? I don't think these are mentioned in the book. #2 I will check for myself. Good to know about the bolts from Master Club!

Hi,
Welcome!
I went to those dark russian websites where people discuss the width of a single bolt in quite elaborate threads,...

Sorry my bad 1. this round rubber bumper should be not under swingarm, under the bumpers (and there goes my english on mechanical terms,...) of the swingarms.

3. I have picture from Military Museum in Moscow I think and from another Russian Museum.

Bolts: As soon as they arrive/ can share some picture. A very nice fellow modeler pointed them out, found almost the whole range at dersockelshop.de

Glad to see you got your Masterclub bolts. Looking forward to see the replacements on the kit.
14. September, 09:25

Me too, quite some work ahead.
Genuinely suprised by the quality, detail and pricing of these bolts.

Very nice work!
10. August, 08:44
mannmitbrille wasd
Thank you!
Unfortunately i cracked the Upper hull while drilling the cable insert for the lights.
Put it on hold for now till my temper about brittle plastic wears off.
10. August, 10:30
Jean-Christophe Zeus
I know the feeling! In my case it's a lost positioning light that caused to put my Sd.Kfz. 7 on hold. It was a half-round clear part, difficult to hold with tweezers. Fling! And off it went, never to be seen again...
10. August, 11:25
mannmitbrille wasd
Yeah I the insane search and rescue on the floor.
Lost one of the towing hooks on this kit too.
Lucky it has almost all minor parts double included.
Actually pretty good kit, the plastic is just not suited for further reworking.
Started a KV-1 for now.
10. August, 16:15
Jean-Christophe Zeus
What a coincidence: I'm also building a KV-1, the 1942 model with the simplified welded turret from Trumpeter. I tried to imitate cast steel on the gun mantlet and trunnion, although I have to say you did a much better job on your T-34 turret!
11. August, 06:40
mannmitbrille wasd
Thank you very much, I guess beginners luck.
For the T-34/76 I used Cement in combination with Mr. 500 which worked really well.
The casting was partially already on the kit (turret & MG mantlet) but it was extremely coarse and completely out of scale. I sanded it down and redid it with mentioned method above. Rolled steel was done with the same method only sanded much finer and almost to a flat finish.
Nice I started with KV-1E.
Will upload some pictures.
Did textures there as well, this time a bit different as I followed a recommendation using Cement & Tamiya basic putty.

Looking very nice! Did you yourself replace the tracks or did you use the tracks from the kit?
2. June, 20:53

@ Erwin, I used the tracks in the kit, I did not want to waste any upgrade parts on this built.
This is pretty much all out of the box, since its my first kit after 20 years away from the hobby.
