Looks like another spicy :hot_pepper: RFM release! Can’t wait, want it!

Interesting: this one doesn’t have an interlocked turret roof plate. I thought all reinforced cast turrets had that feature. I’ll need to check the KV book.

I’m curious will RFM release one with a complete engine? It’ll be the first.

Agreed, Brian! And maybe even a transmission, that would be nice. Bronco’s KV-85 has an engine / my plan is to use that one for a KV-1 model 1942 or a KV-1S.

I just had a look into Neil Stokes’ book: it doesn’t even mention the interlocked roof plates and the line drawings don’t show them either. My guess is that it was a change that was only introduced later in the production, so the RFM kit depicts an early version, whereas the Trumpeter 00360 a later one.
