UNPAINTED

This conversion set is for converting existing 1:144 Takara KV-1 tanks
into KV-1s.

KV-1 chassis NOT included. THIS MODEL IS UNPAINTED. The turret pivot is 2.7mm in diameter. Should fit tanks from other manufacturers too.

Depending on which chassis you may be using, the turret pivot pin might need to be cut short for fitting.

The KV tanks was a series of WWII Soviet heavy tanks named after defense commissar and politician Kliment Voroshilov. The tank was heavily armoured and was immune to early German antitank guns. But later in the war, these heavy tanks were unable to keep up with the fast T-34 tanks. So a light armour version was produced. KV-1s, or in Russian KB-1c, is a lighter armoured version of the KV-1. Lighter armour meant faster speed, which is what the "s" stand for, high-speed, or in Russian, скоростной. The new turret was also the first Soviet tank to be equipped with a new commander's cupola with all-around vision blocks.
