Since I started the other Trumpeter kit, I figured I had better finish the Tamiya kit I had been working on for a few years. Also will be the Finnish captured one. JS-Models turret, Verlinden engine, Trackz road wheels. Got to figure out something to increase the distance between the front left idler wheel and road wheel, they are much too close together. Maybe move the idler axle ahead a bit somehow (can you say razor saw) Also needs the Finnish fenders and grills.





The Trumpeter kit would be a much better start (now), but I have invested too much in this already not to finish it

Good looking KV so far. Keep us posted please. Any chance of adding a pic looking straight down into the engine compartment? Would love to see the work up close there also. Thanks.

Steve
