Warlord Games KV1/KV-2 tank

Another Salute 2017 purchase, the Warlord Games KV-1/KV-2 tank.
This is the first kit I have seen with the new colour  instructions. It is a two sprue kit, but also includes a sprue of Russian infantry and a weapons sprue. Instruction leaflet for the Russian infantry and the front of the instruction booklet.
There are also two data cards and some smoke markers.
Infantry sprue.
The two tank sprues.

It can build both a KV-1 turret and the KV-2 turret. Strangely there is a pistol port on one side of the KV-2 turret, but not the other side or the back of the turret.

So, the KV-1 turret and the main part of the body has been constructed.
The details still need to be added to the turret.
The join on the turret sides needs blending with some milliput.
The rear machine gun port has to be added.
