So here is the Second of 3 KV's that I am working on, the KV85. This consists of a resin turret and upper hull parts and a Taigen lower hull. It runs on a Clark TK80 with a servo elevation that I know works but have to do some programming on the radio to get it to work... I need to adjust the ESC so they pick up a little quicker so it won't be so jerky and run better at low speeds. Has a big ass speaker and a small Taigen stock one as well, TARR smoker, lights front and rear as you can see. It is set up as a full battler and should be a good one! Over all pretty pleased with it... :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jaX_X7Y ... =DeanGodin

I have never been a fan of the KV, it just looks so clunky and that turret, yuk! ;)

But yours with the 85 looks like a real tank! :clap:

Great work Dean. :thumbup: :thumbup:

99% perfect, Dean. :thumbup:
The sounds are amazing; the gun recoil is smooth; the proportional smoke is eye-catching (nose-catching too, with the right aroma :D ), and the finish is also excellent. As you say, just a tweak is needed
in the slow manoeuvre department; but I'd say a pat on the back would be thoroughly justified. :D

Thanks guys,
I agree, the 85 turret looks so much nicer!

Good afternoon!
That is beautiful work! I need to give the 'Palace' a proportional smoker like that.
regards,

I got an old KV1 recently that I had ideas to turn into an 85
Yours is the epitome of what one should be like.
Top job

Very nice! Love the look of the loose tracks, very accurate. I'm assuming that they're metal? As only metal has that awesome sag to them. Great sound too! :thumbup:

Thanks for the comments guys, yes, it is a full metal sprockets, idlers, road wheels, tracks, return rollers and hull, Taigen lower ... :D I found these 8W speakers that fit perfectly in the hull that give it great sound... :D
