KV 2





Here are some images of Tamiya's 1/35 scale Kliment Voroshilov KV-2 Soviet heavy tank. At 53.1 tons, a top speed of 25.6 kmh and armed with a 152 mm Howitzer the KV-2 started out life a simple artillery gun and eventually became a tank. Necessity is the mother of invention I guess. The KV-2 had a very difficult time traveling up hill, gee I wonder why.

Good model, but inscription on turret is unreal and funny, especialy for russians :)

Its be read like «formating Russia». Right inscription is «За мать Россию!».

I wouldn't know about that. I just used the decal supplied in the Tamiya kit. According to them it says "For Motherland Russia".

Tamya can mistake too :)

Also, in early years of WW2 inscription like "For Motherland Rissia" was not popular. Popular incriptions was like "For USSR!" (За СССР!), "For Lenin!" (За Ленина!), "For Stalin" (За Сталина!).

One would think that the amount of years this kit has been around they would have fixed it by now. I had a look at your site.Looks good to bad I cannot understand Russian and my translation program doesn't seem to do it justice.
