Description

KV ‘Malenkly Bahnly’ Turret Shell (Corrected 1939 Turret)

This is a direct replacement for the TRUMPETER kit parts. This item corrects the TRUMPETER 1939 KV kit turret to the correct ‘malenkly bashnly’ design.

Features:

  • Removes the incorrect bolt detail from the turret roof
  • Lowers the turret roof to stand approximately 1-1.5 inches above the edge of the turret (as per the real turret)
  • Lowers the turret profile so it sits approximately 2 mm lower on the hull
  • Removes the seam around the forward periscopes
  • Removes the raised bolt and AA MG mounting detail from the turret hatch ring
  • Removes the flange from around the exhaust fan housing
  • Adds weld detail to exhaust fan housing
  • includes a ‘clean’ exhaust fan housing for very early models
  • Includes the early rear turret MG mount
  • Includes the correct initial L-11 gun mantlet
  • Includes periscope covers without flanges, with weld detail
