So far the fit is very good. For fitting the short piece of aluminium tube from Magic Models, the small guidance lip on the Trumpeter part must be removed. The weld line along the turret armour front plate will be replaced by a self-made one. The big turret won't be completed before I can source two periscopes and the hatch from another kit.

Malenkiy means small, this is the big turret (bolshoy).

I was aware of that. 🙂

Actually I'm going to add the small turret from Tiger Model Designs later on, only I wanted to build the big turret from the kit also, as it's such a beast. I bought two turrets from NewTMD, which took almost exactly four months to arrive from the USA. They both have the L-11 gun, but one is the initial turret design with the bent armour plates and the other one is the boxy design. The mantlets are also sligthly different: the early one has a bolt on the mantlet front, a groove on the right hand side and an open slot beneath the gun barrel, all of which the late one doesn't. The early turret will be used for this project, whereas the late one will be used for a KV-1 model 1939, which I'll build based on Trumpeter 00356.

Tamiya provided an interesting turret in the 1st kit of their rebooted KV tank series. Unfortunately the hull doesn't match it, production-date-wise: it has features from the summer or 1941, whereas the hull dates from late fall / early winter 1941. In this period there have been lots of changes to the tank. So it's best, in my opinion, to combine the turret with a hull from Trumpeter 00359, and use the Tamiya hull for something else.

So it's a good thing that MR Modellbau from Germany released a conversion kit to another interesting vehicle: a model 1940 with simplified welded turret. The details on this turret only surfaced after the release of Neil Stokes' book on the KV tank: it's from a batch of turrets produced ca. September 1941 at LKZ in Leningrad, where at first glance the rear-facing episcopes are moved back as to eliminate a dead spot on earlier turrets. However that is not the case here! Instead, the turret bustle has been shortened, so the dead spot is eliminated whereas the episcopes are still at the same place as before the change.

Additionally, 90mm armoured plates where not yet available in sufficient quantity, so two triangular plates of appliqué armour were added to the existing 75mm plates.

All-steel return rollers appeared at a later date, so the conversion kit provides the correct rubber-rimmed ones. The same applies to the drive sprocket hub cover, which should still have 16 bolts instead of 8.

I saw an interesting picture of such a tank, with the letter Г (G in latin) on the turret and featuring a 4BO green and 6K brown camo. It seems to have had only two stowage bins: one on the number 7 and another on the number 10 position. It has the improvised appliqué armour plates on the hull sides, also included in the MR set.

It probably also had a short armoured strip in front of the driver's hatch, but that can't be seen on the photograph. What can be seen, however, is that it had the two additional armoured strips to protect the turret race from the left and right rear. These two were eliminated when the longer side appliqué armour plates were introduced.

Also included in the MR set is a flat engine access hatch, but it's not clear if it already had the chevron shaped armoured strip or not. The KV book is a little unclear in that regard.

@Jean-Christophe Zeus: Thank you very much for your en-depth response! I find it interesting you use pink oil paint for dot filtering. I'm in the process of doing oil paint work on the lower hull of a pzkpfw ii and will be following up with pigments. I appreciate the explanation. Again, fantastic work sir.

During the whole operation, I managed to break off the turn signals and the rear view mirrors. Today I would attach these parts much later, and not follow the instructions to the letter.

The wheels are much better detailed than the kit ones, made from vinyl. But by now there are better alternatives, e.g. the ones from Def Model which are sagged and feature manufacturer embossings on the tyre walls. But on this kit OTOH it would probably be strange to have this much more details on the wheels than on the rest of the kit.
