Video review of Tamiya 35372 1/35 Russian Heavy Tank KV-1N Model 1941 Early Production



This model kit recreates a WWII Soviet subject. It’s considered an important design in the history of armor, as it was developed concurrently with the T-34 medium tank. Armed with a powerful 76.2mm ZIS-5 gun and continually updated to improve its survivability, it served through to the end of WWII.

• 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit.
• Early 1941 model is depicted.
• Completely new design, with no parts brought over from previous kits.
• Early 1941 features such as welded turret and early production road wheels are accurately rendered.
• Surface textures such as the rough Soviet steel plate and cast areas reproduced with weld lines also depicted.
• Driver and gearbox hatches, plus fender-top stowage cases can be assembled open or closed.
• Simple turret ring construction.
• Assembly type tracks feature one-piece straight sections and recreate upper run “sag”.
• Comes with two marking options and a single commander torso figure.

Need a new kit to build? One that is just for pure fun? Perhaps something 4WD and electric? This could be your next kit right here Tamiya Fans! This is the new Tamiya Comical Avante RC Buggy and it’s different from the Tamiya Comical kits we’ve seen before. This Tamiya RC car kit is the first 4WD in the Comical Buggy line which is of course fitting for the Avante name, but it is most certainly going to bump up the fun factor of the drive. The Comical Avante sits on the new chassis variant the GF-01CB. This is Tamiya’s 4wd driveline chassis with oil damped shocks, independent suspension, top mount battery for fun wheelie action and signature spring loaded front bumper. Beyond the new prepainted Avante body, it also has new Bubble Step Block tires! Once you build this kit up on the bench, you’re guaranteed to have a ton of fun driving it! Our review captures all the details and of course features plenty of action too!
