The quality of the casting is excellent with no blemishes and very fine details
included with well done weld seams and very nicely rendered cast effect on
the turret sides with the correct smooth steel plate roof.
the detail definition is superb with deep relief inside the four periscopes on the turret roof and on the MG housing on the rear turret wall as well as the correct small 'bumps' under the rear turret overhand, something that is not easily seen but does show the attention to detail on the turret.
The barrel is nicely machined with the subtle lip and is drilled to about
10mm for a good appearance when fitted to the turret. The only minor problem
is the opening for the barrel is a little large and the
you glue the barrel in place.
This is an excellent replacement turret with featuring very fine details with superb cast effect and weld seam details to add extra details to any KV1 kit.
Thanks to Dmitriy from Model Point US for the review sample.
