Is it possible to open the mechs hatch to put Koshka in it?

No.

 

The KV is the smallest walker produced to date (a tad smaller than the "light" walkers) so Gran'ma is not that big. You'd need a flexible Koshka that could bend her legs to make her fit, like a GIJoe toy "action figure"… She would look ridiculous as a result IMO.

I've gotthe Otto and it is easily big enough to accomodate a pilot and the hatch is big enough to put a Pilot in, would just like to know if anybody have opened the hatch yet and how they make Koshka fit in there and used as a stand alone.  I'm thinking of cutting at the waste and magnatising the two halves.

Height wise maybe, but it has a fairly big crew compartment/body. You could very well pop the hatch and have Koshka peeping out with her gun. The problem is that her base would not fit so in order to have her interchangeable you would need to have  away of popping her on and off her base. I would recomend ordering a Otto from Dust Models and modify Grand'ma and Koshka that way.

 Already have Otto, they are too expensive to buy another without the free postage.

Oh I agree. I only recommended them because they are not assembled yet and it would be easier to modify the model that way. Cutting up a Grand'ma would take more time and skill but cna still be done.

Received my Premium Grand'ma today and the hatch was open, so I don't know if this helps you or not.

Cheers, I guess it sepends on how much glue they used as to success of opening, I've ordered 2 Zverograde sets as it was actually cheaper than buying one walker, so will have a Koshka dismount :)

 Update.  The hatch popped out easy enough with a twist of a STRONG sharp knife and was able to cut into to along the join and glue back.  Koshka fits in perfectly without cutting in two, just squeeze her legs together an in she goes, and even better, with her slight bent leg, leaning forward position, she sits on the back of the hatch while resting her arms on the hatch - perfect.

Just as well, you need 2 maps to play the last scenario :)
