1:72 Scale Plastic Model – KV-1 Soviet - Russian Army - Length: 3.75" (from back to tip of the gun) Width: 1.75”
This model is entirely made of plastic, this allows for more accurate shapes and details. The model is fully assembled and painted. There is nothing to do other than take it out from the box for display. The tracks are made of plastic and are fitted, however they do not move. The coloring and markings are accurate and realistic.
The maker of the model, Easy Model, really did a good job with the model, the panel lines and details are very clear and crisp. These models have different details engraved such as doors, hatches, panels, lights, ports, antennas, machine guns, ropes, shovels, etc; all of these done with high accuracy and proportion. Moreover the paint scheme is done in a "weathered" style where one can see different shades of darker color along particular panel lines and edges to represent oil stains and/or normal wear
These models come in a very attractive window box and are kept in place by a transparent plastic shell. The model is screwed onto the shell by two screws that need to be removed when taken out of the package for display.
These models are not really toys, they are very fragile and will not break if played with. They are made mainly for display purposes.
The box measures 8 inches long by 3 inches wide by 4 inches high.
The Kliment Voroshilov (KV) tanks are a series of Soviet heavy tanks named after the Soviet defence commissar and politician Kliment Voroshilov who operated with the Red Army during World War II. The KV tanks were known for their heavy armour protection during the early stages of the war, especially during the first year of the German invasion of the Soviet Union. In certain situations, even a single KV-1 or KV-2 supported by infantry could halt German formations. The German Wehrmacht at that time rarely deployed its tanks against KVs, as their own armament was too poor to deal with the "Russischer Koloss" – "Russian Colossus".
