I have been building model kits since the early 70ís starting with Airfix kits of mostly aircraft, then progressing to the point I am at now building predominantly armour kits from all countries and time periods. Living in the middle of Salisbury plain since the 70ís, I have had lots of opportunitie...

Darren-- outstanding photos! I was struck by the rough and uneven cuts in the side armor. Any idea where they got the vehicle from? Does anyone know what the inscription says? Do they have a KV-II on display? Many thanks Great photos DJ

From memory this KV was supplied by Russia to the UK during WW2 for trials, careful checking of the vehicle will show all sorts of damage as the Brits tested it to destruction almost. There is even a hole in the tracks were we tested a grenade going off on the tracks, I will check the pictures and highlight the area as I am sure I took a picture.

I wasn't expecting to see this tank in whitewash. Was it delivered to the British in this livery?

No Jeremy the white wash was applied for display purposes.
