Hello dear readers,
It's been along time again since I have published something actually too long...
Anyway... I managed to work on two projects: Zvezda's Mercedes L4500A and AFV Club's Flakvierling 38 special edition. The original idea was to load Zvezda's Mercedes' cargo with this Flakvierling but after having built the Flakvierling's bed... I noticed it was too large for the Mercedes' cargo bed!!!!!! I was really disappointed because I thought it would look really cool and original to load this big empty bed with this mighty AA gun. After I got rid of my frustration I decided to finish the Flakvierling first and to represent it straight from the box on a simple base and German Fallschirmjager figure from Mantis Miniatures (but about this later).
This is a "special edition" because 4 brass barrels are included in the box. Detail is very sharp and it also comes with a photoetched fret for the finest parts. I don't recommend this model for a beginner because of these very fine PE parts. Nevertheless I do recommend it to the modeller who wishes to build a nicely detailled model SFTB and who wants to get some practice with PE parts without having to fear facing "fitting" and "hard to bend PE parts" problems. In a few words... I think this kit is a little jewel.
Here are some pics of the model completely built. An update will follow soon with the beginning af the painting process.
