Oh gawd ... [] I must resist! Just when I thought I had the will power and got past the Stug D and the newer Jadgpzr, these pictures surface.

Damn, good thing I have the Tamiya electronics AND the tank. And I still need to get the HL tanks for the other kits. [X(]

I need to sell a few organs or blood or something. REALLY sweet pictures! [sm=thumbs_up.gif]

Looks like I will need to get a KV 1 after all. This conversion looks sweet.

[sm=lol.gif] Actually I have been waiting for this one for awhile. By the time I am done this HL KV-85 (or KV-122) will be more Tamiya than HL.

Wow, very nice detailing. ($?) Seems there is more interest in Russian armor now...pretty soon we'll see JS-II's running around. What we need are T-54/55 hulls to open a whole new modeling page..

What's the history behind the KV-85? Was it used widely? Or was it a very small production like some of the German armor?

They were a stop gap measure until the IS tanks were developed. About 147 were made and sent to the front in 1943.

Any word on price, where to buy, availability in North America etc...?? Profiline is based in the Czech republic I think, and it looks like they have a bunch of other conversion kits, are any of these currently available..?? Their site lists MRC as the USA distributor, but there are not any conversion kits listed there as far as I can tell.

I get all mine from [link=http://www.welshdragonmodels.co.uk/index.asp]Welsh Dragon[/link] and depending on this particular kit, they were about $225.00 delivered. That was for the Brummbar, StuG F and the Jagdpanzer IV. Very dependable vendor, very friendly and fast shipping too.

Did I mention I still need to get the HL tanks for these?

Ok boys, whip 'em out!

In all seriousness, seeing detail like that makes me want to get back into building model armor. Damn, that's sweet!

Yeah Jeff, Steve at Welsh Dragon is top notch. He has great stuff but i just cant figure out how he gets everything delivered so fast. I swear he must live in the post office over there in England. buddy of mine in our gamming clan knows him well and lives about 6 kilo's from him.

Looks good! Profiline should do a painted tank, to show it off as a finished model, in addition to these photos. I'd like to see it on a Tamiya KV..
