88mm L71 Flak 41

Anyone who liked the look of the previous German 88mm L71 Flak 41 anti-aircraft gun that Bronco released should be even more impressed with the latest rendition from Bronco which is the German 88mm L71 Flak 41 anti-aircraft gun with Sd Ah 202 trailer. This kit has so many parts that I would suggest it is not a kit for the beginner however that said with care this should be buildable by most with a few kits under their belt. This model of the German 88mm L71 Flak 41 anti-aircraft gun with Sd Ah 202 trailer should look great when complete and a more thorough review should follow this soon.

About Darren Baker (CMOT)
FROM: ENGLAND - SOUTH WEST, UNITED KINGDOM

I have been building model kits since the early 70ís starting with Airfix kits of mostly aircraft, then progressing to the point I am at now building predominantly armour kits from all countries and time periods.

BE warned guys ..this kit is not all its cracked up to be ,, i built the one before they released it with the trailer parts .. lots of problems with parts fitting together ..nearly no location pins to speck off and when there is most done aline properly and when its built there is so much weight over the front of the gun that it just falls off the carriage and Bronco don't include anything to lock onto the pin to stop this from happening ..easy fix really but still . But and there's always a but ,,who else makes this gun in 35th scale and in plastic ?? ..nobody i know off so even with all its issues its a very cool gun to add to the German Flak family . I will be getting the Sonderfahrgestell when it comes out thats for sure Phill

Interesting the collaborative effort between Bronco and DML with DML doing the SdAh 202. James, it must have taken you hours to take all those photographs. Thanks for the effort, and I'll also be looking forward to build report sometime.

Mike...Darren did all the work, I just posted it Phill, I'm only just beginning the same kit as you (hopefully will post the start of a build log in the next couple of days) and haven't had any fit issues yet. Hopefully things won't go downhill as I continue. But I do hear you on the weight of the gun causing it to say goodbye to the carriage, was thinking of just gluing it in place when I determine where I want to show it.

James ,, Ya gluing it is a good idea ,, the big parts are not that much a problem ,,its all the small parts which will drive ya nuts ,,theres a heap of them ..so many more parts than a normal 88 which we have all built at some point ..i would say nearly twice the amount lol guessing of course but still least when i build another one i will know what i am in for .
