The Russian KV-8 flamethrower tank offered in 28mm scale by Warlord Games is a massive work of art cast almost entirely in resin. This kit comes in 4 thick resin pieces (hull, left and right tracks, and turret) each beautifully crafted with hardly any mold lines, jet plugs, or flash to clean off. The kit also comes with a small pouch of metal bits including the barrel, machine guns for the front hull, rear turret, and hatch. And a great tank commander sculpt.
Clean up and assembly was a breeze and the tank was ready for a base coat of paint within 10 minutes of opening the box. I really can’t say enough good things about these Warlord Games resin kits. While their plastic kits, offered through some other companies, may be a little cheaper and may contain a few more bits and pieces, the crisp detail, instant gratification and speed of construction you get from Warlord resin is unparalleled.
