Hi Nick, I don't know much about these vehicles (except I want one!), was KV14 the official designation?

Thanks,
Roger

The production version was called SU-152.

I knew that if I left my EE one partly rebuilt for long enough, a better one would come along, but at least it's unlikely to be before I finish my own one.

looking forward to forthcoming SU-152 and KV-85 also; IIRC i read comments on this or another forum suggesting that the latter kit was incorrect based on photo of built-up model from Nuremburg fair i think - any thoughts?

The first and most obvious problem is that they have put the KV-85 turret in the same place as the KV-1S turret. EE did the same. It should be farther forward.

Judging by the available KV-85 photo's of the test shot, I suspect the turret roof is asymmetrical as in the IS-2, rather than symmetrical as it ought. We don't get a good view of the left side of the turret roof, but the commander's cupola and loader's hatch appear to have the same spacing as the IS-2, so it seems that Trumpeter have not yet moved the cupola inwards.

Yes, the turret of the IS-2 tank. Look at the distance between the loader's hatch, and the commander's cupola.
