CAPTURED KV-2 TRUMPETER 1/35 MAKING ZIMMERIT COATINGI’m now crazy about the Zimmerit Coating roller. I imagine this captured KV-2 was remodeled and given the coating around the autumn of 1943. There might have been a vehicle that had survived tenaciously in the north or Yugoslavia or Norway that the region which the battle front line did not drastically move so much.

CAPTURED KV-2 TRUMPETER 1/35 PAINTINGIt is fiction, of course, I painted like this to refer Ferdinand’s camouflage painting of Kursk battle, the 654th heavy tank destroyer battalion. It is self-confidence, but this camouflage painting is good looking and matched with big turret and body as Ferdinand.
