MK44 SternenKnight

I love building these MK44s. They are such an easy kit to assemble and a good pallet for modifications and weathering effects. This is my seventh complete 1/20 MK44.

KV-2 Leningrad 1943

 

The original image this model is based off is from a movie still taken in Leningrad February 1943. There are a number of interesting items about this KV-2. First is the turret numbers. As far as I know, this is the only photo of a Soviet KV-2 with any markings. It’s also a Soviet KV-2 with white wash - most white wash KV-2 photos are German BeutePanzers. Missing fender sections on KV-1 tanks are not uncommon but it is nice to see a photo documenting this on a KV-2. The additional appliqué armor plates are also common on KV-1 tanks but is unique on this KV-2. Put this all together and it’s an interesting subject for a build.

Luna Gans

The Luna Gans is one of those weird yet cool looking designs from the SF3D days. Kow kit-bashed the original design together from the (at the time newly tooled) Nitto SF3D kits. The Luna Gans combines the legs, hull, and center section of the Krote with the head from the Neuspotter and the thrusters of the Fledermaus.

T-34 1941

 

This T-34 is built to depict the unique winter whitewash scheme used by the 1st Tanks Guards near Moscow in 1942. The grid pattern was used to reduce the contrast between the white and base green. At distances the effect was blurred and made the pattern look like vegetation.
