Andras, agreed that this is a marvellously "wrong" looking vehicle, and consequently looks great. On the interior, maybe the radio would have been inside the tank hull fighting compartment, as the superstructure isonly there for the big gun, and looks quite small as far as those things go; I imagine there's room inside the tank for radio set, ammo, maybe? I wondered the same about the Dicker Max I'm building, is it known what the interior is like with any accuracy? Incidentally that Trumpeter kit has no radio set, but again the driver is separated from the rear compartment by a bulkhead.
Anyway, interesting review, hope to see you finish it off maybe?

(Sorry, did not know ENTER would send this message.) Anyhow, one model I saw in 1/35 had the radio in the "turret". But then it had the original turret ring, and the interior was accessible through the ring. (The ammo was stored in the tank itself...) So it's confusing. It would have been nice to have found some photos, but I was unable to find any references or drawings. Next stop: KV-5 and SU100Y.
