Ok so "technically" it should fit. However it isn't a swap and go as there will be no latch system and the middle brace for the turret will have to be trimmed down before it sits correctly on the lower hull. I don't believe it is enough to have to lose the brace, but you will need to trim those middle posts down and figure a way to latch it. After that there is a bit of a gap in the front as well that will need to be filled, but other than that it looks like it would be a good fit I never finished my KT build so I had it sitting around. I was actually cleaning my office recently so I already had it out.

Imex-Erik: thank You very much for help and attached pictures , now all its clear.

One more question: is HL KT upper hull size and shape excately the same as Taigen once?
Is Taigen KT upper hull with metal turret fits HL KT lower hull also ?

The HL one is very similar to the Torro one but without the bracing, upper hull latch molds, and the accessories on the Torro version one has metal tools instead of the molded on ones. As for compatibility it will partially fit but it made for the metal editions as it kind of expects you to have the latch system. Although with that nice big rear hatch I'm sure its no big deal to make a switch panel
