Default Conversion kits of my workshop

Greetings to all. I want to show a photo of my conversion kits.
Now the kits are ready: KV-1S; KV-85; KV-122. The SU-152 will be ready soon.

If you are selling these you need to post them in classifieds. It's against the rules to put up items for sale on this forum.

I wish RCU would fix the listing page. If you list something it shows up in the general sale page with all other genres.
I wish we could have our own for sale section for just tanks again.
Till they fix that maybe we should all just post our for sale ads in our tanks forum to get the point across they need to create us a tanks only for sale category. I would not mind seeing listings mixed with all the build threads.

I can't upload photos yet. Thanks for the sales advice. In the near future I will post photos of my kits, but I have sales going through the store and Facebook page. I hope my actions will not be evaluated as a sale. I read the forum and saw users' interest in various modifications of the KV tank. So I decided to open a topic here.

I totally agree that we need our own classified section. I don't know why they decided to change it but it was a bad move. The tank classifieds used to work just fine until they did one of their "upgrades" and we lost the whole section. It's very frustrating trying to post things there and then you go to the tank classifieds and you don't see your post cuz it's only posted in the general for sale Section. That kind of sucks. I hope you're right, Rich, and I hope the moderators see this and either get us back to where we were with the tank classified section or drop the rule about selling things. If you are an established member at this forum and well-known, you should be able to post your items for sale right here. The rule was mainly to keep out spam posts of items for sale, but established members should get a pass on that. Let's hope the moderators are watching.

I could find 2 so far:

poligonrcDOTru/goods/Konversionnyj-nabor-KV-122-RedArmy?mod_id=272851594

poligonrcDOTru/goods/Konversionnyj-nabor-KV-122-RedArmy-2?mod_id=273732198

there are 2 listed but I think there are already 3.
just replace DOT with . and it should work

That looks very good. You're very talented. I really think that we, as a community, need to talk to the moderators about the sale policy. Members should be allowed to post stuff like this for sale. Since the tank classified section isn't doing the job, what if we were to ask for a sticky? Having a thread right at the top, totally designed so that we can advertise stuff for sale to each other might be the answer. What do you guys think? If you guys think it's a good idea I'd be willing to send a message to Barracuda Hockey and ask him to discuss it with the other moderators. We are such a niche community I think a sticky like that would be justified. The aircraft Community is huge, but we are a definite minority and I can't see any reason why we shouldn't at least have a sticky for selling stuff. But maybe there are things I'm not thinking of. Can anyone think of a good reason why we should not at least have a sticky for selling things to each other? We used to have a decent classified section, but that's long gone, so maybe a sticky would be a suitable answer?

My apologies for hijacking the thread a little bit, hopefully it will have a good result.

Thank you Crius. That would be very good.

Default Kv-122

This whale turned out thanks to the order of my friend Eddyk. The turret body from KV-85 is taken as a basis. A new gun armor has been developed. I really liked how the finished assembled set looks. I decided to redesign the kit to use the recoil/lift mechanism on servers. It turned out another modification of the KV.

Fantastic! As soon as I wrap up several projects on the bench, I'll be ordering this one.

SU-152 looks good. If I hadn't already built one of my own I would be interested in this. So you build the complete uppers for sale? If I did decide to buy one of the other uppers (KV-1S, KV-85, or KV-122), can I get it unprimed? I'm asking so if I want to add any details I'm not having to remove paint.

Of course it's possible. And what details do you plan to add?

Default JS-1 first and JS-1 serial

Today I have allocated time for two of my long projects. These are JS-1 (Js-85) and JS-1 (KV-13). I do them slowly. JS-85 is made on the chassis of TAIGEN JS-2, KV-13 is made completely from scratch.

I'd take a JS-1 100 if you ever made one ; )
