The KV-5 (Object 2250 was a design conecpt started in mid 1941 but cacelled due to the Siege of Leningrad. The tank was to mount the 107mm Zis-6 and was to weigh around 100tons.
This build used the Takom KV-5 released in 2014, It was one of their first kits and while not as refined as newer offerings, it still builds into a nice representation of this unique armored vehicle.

Replaced plastic grab handles with wire
Replaced all weld beads
Added hit marks with a Dremel and epoxy putty
Textured surfaces with Tamiya Grey Putty thinned with liquid cement
