So I stripped this one down to the bone- whanta re-do the paint job.
here is the soup made with some oven cleaner


Magically I get this result.


Actually this is a warning to anyone out there that may want to strip their 88 from DML- The Oven Cleaner I used dissolved the metal parts!






Not to worry for me though- there are enough parts in the kit that you could almost build 3 guns with what DML gives you. I'll just have to replace the metal parts for the plastic ones.

It's on the right hand side of the image of yours that I posted in my question; you indicated the location of the box on the DML model with a red arrow. In the photo you just posted, it would be the lever with a round knob between the two boxes with dials (don't know their names). Which actually raises another question: the DML kit of the Flak 36 doesn't have the boxes with dials but a couple of round devices similar to the one on the other side by the fuse setting device. So does that mean that this photo is in fact a Flak 37 or is it another version of a Flak 36?
Okay I think I understand what you mean- BTW I tried condensing all the posts but screwed up but I think the essential question is here and the answer...
when you described it as an empty box I was a bit confused- I was picturing a small stowage box of some sort. Any ways here are some pics. I have about 250 pics of this 88. I would make copies and sell them for $16.20 CND to any one interested.-shipping extra.
for now here are some freebies-click these for the big uns.


















That was my post.

Thanks Evan. That's the one. Sorry about the lack of clarity as to what the empty box was, but Panzerfaust had called it that in his post identifying the missing part. One further question: is the gun in the photos a Flak 36 or a 37? As I mentioned my 36 doesn't have dials like the ones in the photos.

That was my post above-my mistake. That is a 37.

Then I should have said, "Thanks James" instead. The photos are great and show exactly what I needed to see. I appreciate the help. As to the rest of the photos, this month's armor budget is exhausted so I'll see what next month brings.

WOW - this is nice work and I have just learned from this thread that the Tamiya kit is no way as nice as the kit you have here. I've been building the Tamiya kit and figure it's a good way for me to learn but no way is it work the extra money for the PE kits. I'll save my money for the better model.
