Super detailed 8.8cm Flak 36/43 (DML Flak 36 kit): WIP

This is the 8.8cm Flak 36/43 which was the standard 8.8cm Flak 36 but mounting the L/71 barrel from the 8.8cm Flak 41. I received duplicate one in error from Cromwell models who makes the Flak 41. I machined off the retaining strap and replaced it with styrene sheet. Besides this, I added bits from the Lionroar Flak 36 PE set, the upper recuperator armored housing from the DML Flak 37 kit (the only known picture of the Flak 36/43 shows this item), and I added wiring, bits and pieces as I saw fit. Almost ready for paint. Still a few items to install but mostly done. Some parts aren't in their final position (like the recuperator cylinders) but I need to be flexible to paint the complex assemblies.

Any questions and comments are welcome. RC











Note the extra long gun tube!

If you remove <img src=" and "> then it will show the images.

Look forward to see your build

Hi Roy,

That's a very nice build, how are you going to paint it up?

Super build!

The barrel makes it look sleek and mean.

Nice model....so what's holding the gun shield in place?

Or, is it just placed on for the photos...?

Bet that gun had some barrel droop...

Excellent photos BTW...
