I guess this is the KV-2 with MT-1 turret - free download at papermodels-bg.
I can spot a few issues on the model which were problems when I built the other KV-2 - lowered turret from the same website. The MT-1 turret was only used on the first 9 production KV-2s.

Regards,

Charlie

Great, I thought it is made with metal instead of paper.
Would you mind to tell me how did you make the track? They look really like metal.

Welcome TLUN
I used a set of laser-cut. First the track painted matt black, then alluminium or silver, then diluted rust and black. At the end I used Metalizer on the edges. To complete the effect, I used a few shades of earth pigments. I hope I helped
