BeutePanzer KV-5

Recommended Posts

Trumpeter KV-5 built as a BeutePanzer. Because why not. Needs some minor clean up before paint.

Added lots of pieces from the spare bin or items I recently picked up at local shows.

Lionroar tow cable
ModelKasten clamps
Tasca jerry cans with scrap PE bracket
Aber tow loops for the Tiger 1
MIG productions resin tail light
Copula, Notek, horn, etc from Dragon bits and pieces
Still need to make the brackets to hold the spare wheels and tracks.

Looking good.

That second profile is very effective in making the turret seem less tall.

Two lines of tan do a really good job of breaking up the outline.

Can't wait to see yours finished.

Thanks Mark. It only existed in drawings. Never prototyped. Project was cancelled when Soviets pulled back.

Paint has been applied.

The smaller markings are airbrushed thru Alliance Model Works stencils. The larger crosses are sprayed thru hand cut frisket. The 14 is a spare decal from a 38(t).

Thanks Bryan! I have seen those before, now that you reminded me. I'm just not a big fan of resin kits. I tend to stab myself deeply whenever I work on one. I am hoping to get one or more of his Chaffees someday.

Excellent!!!

That really is an effective camo scheme. 

Great work again, Bryan.

Thanks Bill! I could have pushed the earth effects a little more, but I wanted to get on to other projects! 😀
