It's been a while since I posted some pictures here. But I am not completely off the hobby...
The KV-2 was a Soviet infantry support tank. Its intented job was to destroy fortified field works and bunkers. In spite of having a bad cross-country capability, being under-engined and prone to mechanical breakdown, its thick armor made it almost invulnerable for German AFVs. Therefore the KV-2 frequently was used as a mobile bunker that blocked important roads where it could hold its ground quite well. And that's where we are here, a road somewhere in the Western Soviet Union in Summer 1941...













It's the Trumpeter kit with heavy Photo-etched additions including the fenders and the tool boxes. Figures are a mixture of Evolution, Scale75 and other manufacturers. No poses needed to be altered this time. The air recognition flag is actual linen which I'd better replaced with thin lead foil.
Best regards,
Andreas

That is a very moving and well-executed vignette, Andreas.  The vehicle and figures are very realistically done.  Thank you for sharing this! 

Best regards,

Brilliant work Borsos! Well executed and poignant. I recall reading accounts of the heroic stands made by KV-2 crews in '41. Legendary.

I look forward to seeing more.
