Russian Kv-1B W/Applique Armor

  1. Description

    Tamiya announces the release of the up-armored KV-1B in our ever-growing 1/48 MM Series.
    Display it with the previously released KV-1 to show the differences between the two, line it up
    with our other Russian vehicles like the T-34 and GAZ-67B, or pit it against its German adversaries
    like the Tiger I and Panther in battle dioramas.
    Armed with a powerful 76.2mm main gun and equipped with 75mm frontal armor, the KV-1 tank
    was an unpleasant surprise for the German army when they invaded Russia in the summer of
    1941. Impervious to nearly all anti-tank guns, the KV-1 proved to be a formidable opponent, but
    the introduction of newer, more powerful German tanks lessened its advantage as the war went
    on. In response, additional armor plates were bolted onto the hull and turret to increase protection,
    resulting in the KV-1B variant.


    • High quality 1/48 scale assembly model kit of the KV-1B heavy tank.
    • Diecast chassis for added weight and realism.
    • Applique armor for turret and hull accurately reproduced complete with bolt details.
    • Turret hatch can be modeled in both opened and closed positions.
    • Tank treads are assembly type, with the upper section featuring realistic sag effect.
    • 3 types of markings included (tentative).
