Does anyone know if someone makes the "cast" turret for the KV-1 ?

Ian, I don't think anyone makes one ( I could be wrong ), but what if you putty around the stock turret.

You have to cut the rear corners off the tank with a belt sander, round off the front corners, make up plastic card to fill in the holes and get out the gallon of bondo.

There is also a lot more than needs to be done. I figure 6-8 hours... or, buy a turret if it's available. lol

Juckenberg used to make a cast turret for the KV-1.  I bought one from Welsh Dragon about 3 years ago, as I didn't want to try and convert the Heng Long one.  They are no longer listed on that site, and I don't know who else may still be selling his kits, but it might be worth trying to search one out.  -Mike

Thanks Mike.

Found it.

It appears to be on the site but no button to buy it, I have sent them an e-mail.  We'll see.

Update:

I e-mailed him as mentioned, he has agreed to make a turret for me. Should be done in about a week he said. Not cheap, but he is the only one with them. I will update with pics when it arrives. I should imagine it will be a few weeks.

Thanks for the lead Mike.

That good to hear!

What will it be made of? Resin?

Very cool! I do like the cast turret. Were they early or late KV production? I really don't know anything about them.

They are late production. They also have different wheels and idlers on the late production Kv's also.
