KV-220 "Russian Tiger" Super Heavy Tank

Another of my resin kits from my last trip to Taiwan. This was a quality kit with lovely smooth resin and all very clean needing very little clean up before making.

I still don't have a KV 3 but this at least was one off my list. I am thinking about a scenario where the Germans break through to a factory complex used as a testing facility for Russian heavy and super heavy experimental tanks. Just need to think what the Germans can then bring up so have some sort of a chance!

Overall a nice clean kit and the model comes up nicely.

Comparison to a standard KV 1:

And with other experimental vehicles, T100Y, T100z, KV 220 and KV 5. The KV5 still dwarfs the rest.
