Trumpeter models a WWII-era experimental Soviet heavy tank in 1/35 scale, the KV-3 heavy tank.
The Soviet KV-3 heavy tank was planned as the replacement to the KV-1. Prototypes were developed, varying in armor thickness and main specifications, unfortunately none went into the production stage.

With over 300 parts Trumpeterís Russian KV-3 Heavy Tank (09544) features a kit with refined details such as multi-slide molded lower hull, photo-etched components, as well as link-and-length tracks. As built, the model stands at 276.7mm in length and 95mm in width.

I thought they already had a KV-122 on the market? Trumpeter kits come out looking pretty good. The bottom chassis is the same as the other kits, just the turret is new. But, when you gotta have it..you gotta have it.

The turret appears to be undersized. This was discussed in an earlier thread.

Yeah, I think they are using the same Tank Power drawings that Atelier Infinite used.

Talk about efficient use of the lower hull mouldings! I think that Trumpeter must have offered over a half-dozen versions of this basic kit stretching back to their very beginnings as a company. Shame about the dimensions on the turret.
