Default First HengLong KIT - KV-1

Hi Guys,
couple of days have received he ordered KIT.

Actually nice - very nice KITto built any KV-based tank you want.
What we have as "yammee" parts - MATOmetal sprockets, idlers, tracks + MATO3:1 gear with STEELshaft + commanders cupola if you want to build a German captured variant of KV-1.

And finally I have enjoyed the build itself...

I'm sure Hal will correct me if I'm wrong, but with my limited Russian, I'm sure it says something like "fascist b*****ds"[X(][X(]

It says in correct Enlish - "Fight with fashist reptile" in the deeper meaning "Get rid of fascist *black-brown stinking mass that comes from our back-side* " (sorry for this).

Actually this is a test basic kit we ordered to intriduce on the market in Russia.
We are convinced that basic kits are good for building instead of buying RTR models and demolishing them. They are more expensive but deffinitely are better than RTRbasic ones.

Regaring shafts - exactly because we have 6 cases of brass shats breakening with this kit we have decided to try the improvement, the steel shaft.

If You guys ask your regional dealers to import this kind of kits to your markets (and I now it is possible, as I do it for Russia) our hobby will be developped in more.

That's quite a revelation to me! Wrong "deeper" meaning.

It reads "Kill the fascist snake!" Fascists were in Italy and in Germany there were national-socialists. But in USSR national-socialists were called fascists.

Are these kits a special order?

How does your metal track interface with the metal sprockets? I have a metal set but they did not seem to line up well with the sprockets. IF yours are fine, maybe I got a bad set or something.

better say "serpent", but russian word "gadina" that period has had broader meaning...

Yes, of special order. That is why I pointed a special attention to regional dealers - if they start order kits simular ike this may be HLand other Chinese producers (with all my respect) could start producing kits - not only RTR models.

Metal track perfectly interface with metal sprockets, not any single problem has occurred for three years of getting them.
I have two models (HL KV-1 and KV-220 with Tamiya electronics inside nothing has gone wrong)...

Yevgeni,
Thanks for the wartime poster. It brings something tantalizing to the war that we in Amerika cannot fully appreciate.
