I bought two of these outstanding kits. One to build the Flak 41 and one to convert to the Flak 36/37.

I built the 41 first:

For the 37 conversion I also bought the DML Flak 37 kit. This was done well before the Bronco 37 kit was released.

The travel lock and gun base from the second 41 kit were modified for use in the building of the 37.

Both are now ready for weathering.

Three prototypes were built but only one with the Flak 37 was sent to Italy for battlefield testing where it was reported to have performed well.
It's not known as to what paint scheme was used so I painted mine with a common camo scheme for that AO.

Damn, Tony, how many models you are working on now? =)

Pvt Mutt 09-05-2015 04:24 PM

Being retired I have a lot of time to kill and I skip around between models
so as not to get burn out or bored working on the same one all the time.

While glue is curing or paint is drying I pull one back out and do something on it for awhile etc etc.

Just passing the time:D

Nice work Tony,

Well done.

That' a fine SP AA gun... well, two fine guns...:thumb: That Flak 41 is really something. What an effort and what a lot of time on your hand... must be wonderful!

Let's get the numbers, Tony: how many kits do you have on the bench and in waiting.

I have 22 waiting... oh my, it'll be decades before I get through those...:D:D

Many regards

Hey Jochen these two will be the next to get finished after my S-51.

Oh my goodness do I have to count them? I would have to spend the whole day going through boxes and storage drawers.:eek:

Lets just keep count as I do the finish work:D

Although a pretty cool looking vehicle, it really never grabbed me per say. Wonder what happened to the three built.

Roy the one that went to Italy I never read anything about its history other than it preformed very well there but the other two were used for training purposes.

Some like Chocolate some don't:D

Thanks
