FlaK 37 88mm ..
Rheinmetall 8,8cm Flak 36/37 - an Armortek model/kit from 2005

Amortek FlaK 36/37)



When I'd written that I was fortunate enough to be able to acquire an older Armortek model- the Sd. Kfz. 7 I recall I said that I'd seen the 88mm FlaK 36 gun up for sale on Armortek's forum a year ago now and I really wanted to add them to my growing 1/6 collection. Over the years I'd gone out to Armortek's website and saw as they released this and other models but being in the 1/10 scale as deeply as I was I couldn't get myself to pull the trigger to buy one although I must say this one was very attractive to me from the first I saw it. I think if any thoughts popped into my head back then I probably groused as to why no one brought out a 1/10 scale version but at the same time I thought these seemed pretty spiff.

As I write this I have to say I've been deep into rebuilding and improving the detail on this model for several months now and it's been in pieces scattered all over my home. I began this when I reached a point where just about everything I'd wanted to do on the Sd.Kfz.7 was complete.
