2cm Flakvierling 38 auf Selbstfahrlafette Sd.Kfz.7/1

Well, I start a new project yesterday. It's Dragon's 6525 kit

Chassis, muffler and part of the running gear



Front wheels and the auxiliary one comes in 3 parts, 2 in "normal" styrene and the pneumatic in Dragon Styrene



I don't like how looks that seam line and I'm not sure if it can be filled with Tamiya putty



The 16 parts of the Maybach HL 62 TUK engine; BTW, what is the meaning of "TUK" ?



Der Motor (just blue-tacked)





Fortunately, until now all parts fits perfect

Cheers

Darío

Hello Darío,

sorry, I can't help you with "TUK", but have to correct another thing: It's Der Motor, not das
I'll follow this SBS closely, as the 7/1 is one of my favorite vehicles.

Johannes

More updates. In the first picture we can see the wheel that pull the towing cable. Both parts are keyed and is not easy to see the "key"



Parts mounted today; engine, transmission box and winch are not glued yet



The kit has not the inner part of the radiator, so I use a piece of brass mesh



Dragon don't provide either the towing cable, so I use one from a fishing store. I made the conections between the compressed are too

The tyre looks over sized, is that right? I wouldn't care about the inside [shim it up] but it looks bad around the outside. Hard to fix that up without damaging the hub 'n rim or the tyre bead. I hope aftermarket wheels don't cost to much .

Thanks guys!

Last update (Man, How I enjoy detailing engines !!)
SOme color to the chassis



Mudguard reinforced with "Plasticard" (Claro cell phone card)



Engine painted: is not all black, some parts are brownish-black; belts and hoses are matt dark grey





In place, just for pics





I will stop for a while and I will continue my abandoned Styer loco
