1⁄35Soviet KV-1S Heavy Tank
Stage nine is where you make the fuel tanks and the missed oil tank before adding them to the fenders, this is a straight forward task as long as you opened the slots in the earlier stage in position five. The front fender brackets are also applied now just remember to sand the sides for ease of fitment. The last parts to add at this part of stage nine are the tensioning hooks for the tow ropes and the last of the side grab rails on the hull. The stage is finished and for that matter the build of the model by adding the turret to the hull and adding the tow ropes and towing eyes to the front of the vehicle. Build complete or is it? You still need to add the spare tracks to areas 5 and 6 which is usually two links on each of the two stations, as I said before these are in the box as are the clamps for them and which will be added after painting. The other item you need to source is the long rectangular box which I again robbed from 00358, as you may not have that model or another Trumpeter KV with the box in it I have included some pictures of the box as you may wish to attempt to scratch build it.
