PE work looks stunning. It's joy to look such clean build as this one.

So I am guessing that the sprockets did not have lightening holes in it for the version you are building. Nice build. The P.E. work is very good.

Lock

Hi all,
Thanks for your words, guys. Now I arrived to a bit time- and nerveconsuming part. I want to change the lock mechanism of the side shields to the Griffon PE parts. I tried one with soldering but the parts are so tiny that I could not do it even after several trying so decided to use CA gel instead. Fortunately Griffon expected some false tries and even the hungry carpet monster as the PE fret has 10 parts thought the kit needs only 8... Well, the CA glue seems to work OK, and I hope it will not fall apart after a time... Two pictures show the difference (and now anyone can copy my fingerprints...):

Small tedious work. Gotta love it (not really).

Tiny shiny stuff

Hi folks,
I've made some slow progress on the Flakpz, though most of it is hardly visible. As the hull is almost ready (the suspension is cleaned up and waiting for assembling but I want to paint the hull and the suspension parts first) I've turned my attention to the Flak38. The kit itself provides a gun that seems OK but as this is not an oob build I used some Griffon stuff to enhance it. The metal barrel was a bit difficult to attach (two times I broke it off intentionally as the gun was twisted and third time I thought it was OK) and the other parts were tricky due to their size.


Some or more precisely a lot more tiny PE parts are awaiting cutting-clearing-soldering on my desk like these (they well become the firing foot pedal base when finished)

I also made a serious cut-and-sand-it-down action on the plastic gun base as well. The reason was simple: more PE to come and I also decided to build a shield-less version so I cut the unnecessary parts as well.
In my wildest dreams I finished this model in 2013. Well. I still have almost three months to go
cheers,
Zsolt

Gun's almost ready

Hi all,
Made some progress recently on the flakpanzer though it was hardly visible as several tiny sub-assemblies were made first. The firing pedal took shape and become the first all-soldered all-brass and not too simple thing in my modelling "carreer".




The parts (excl. the seat) of the main gun and finally the result. Not 100% yet as I want to put a figure on that later so the steering mechanism is glued on later. I was thinking on some Archer weld beads (also bought their micro weld bead set) but later decided not to use. Compared to pictures of the original they would seem to big. I also sanded Dragon's original (and nicely done) seams on the same reason.




And finally a dry-fit to the hull...



Next steps are some minor sub-assemblies to glue on the hull (rear lights, tow cable, side shields with those funny little locking mechanism, etc) and finally I arrive to painging. Still thinking on an "action dio" setting with firing flak, running pz grenadiers, ruins and others.

cheers,
Zsolt

Nicely going. I really love the flak with it's aftermarket parts.
