I know we're supposed to repeat the inscriptions just like they appear on the box. So this is a technical note to the manufacturer: The proper designation of this gun should be 88mm L/74 Flak 41 instead of "L/71". The PaK 43 / KwK 43 had a 71 caliber barrel length. The Flak 41 however was an entirely different design, and had an even longer barrel. It also used different ammunition than both the Flak 18/36/37 and the PaK/KwK 43 families.
Aside from the naming, it looks as though all of the ammo included is wrong - while the painting instructions appear to be correct for FlaK shells, a FlaK 41 shell is 1163mm long while a PaK 43 shell is 822mm. I've not had a chance to check the kit rounds, but from the boxes they appear to just be PaK/KwK 43 rounds. Nobody seems to do FlaK 41 rounds at all (or 128mm FlaK 40 rounds, or rounds for either of the German 128mm anti-tank guns). A shame, since rounds and ammo crates are a must for a diorama.
Yes, the included ammo is from their PaK/KwK 43. Even the decals read accordingly Regarding 128mm ammo, look here: 12,8cm Flak Munition (Schatton Modellbau 3582, 1:35) and for crates: Holzkisten für 12,8 cm Flak..atton Modellbau 35115, 1:35)
Btw, I've already contacted Schatton and asked if they'd be interested in doing proper Flak 41 ammo. They sounded interested, but I haven't heard anything since.
Thanks for the pointer to the 128mm ammo. If it helps influence them any, if Schatton were to do FlaK 41 ammo, I'd be in the market for that too. I've got a couple of projects I'd use that on - the standalone gun and the prototype on the Sfl.IVc chassis.
