1/35 Tamiya KV-1

January 5, 2023 · in Armor · · 11 · 0.6K

My latest build, new (ish) Model 1941. I added resin fuel tanks, resin bedrolls, and some tarps made out of Milliput. For the basecoat I used a mix of Tamiya's acrylics that I got from an old 1/48 KV-2 article written by Marcus Nicholls from Tamiya Model Magazine #137! I knew that old pile of magazines would come in handy...Thanks for looking, for more photos please check out my website at

  1. Excellent result, Scott! Happy New Year!

  2. Great looking armor, Scott @slyle
    Very nice result on the painting and weathering.

  3. The extras you fitted plus the weathered finish make for a great looking tank. I never throw old magazines away.

  4. I really like the paintwork and weathering on this. Excellent work.

  5. Beautiful work @slyle! 👍 That is a great looking tank model, and your extras add just the right tough! 🍻

  6. That weathering is extra tasty!

  7. Thanks all! It's a big tank, it dwarfs the Panzer IIs and IIIs on my display shelf..

  8. Nice job on this beast.

  9. Oooooooo she's hot. That is one hell of a finish job. The streaking and dust and fading are done to perfection.
    All these years and I never thought to drag down some white from the slogan, which were chalked on in most cases. Great touch. An outstanding KV all the way.

    • Thanks Bill. I never would have thought of the streaking from the slogan either but I noticed it in this picture:
