20mm Flakvierling WIP

A snap of my WIP on the flak unit.

Shifted gears (so to speak) from car work and wanted to tackle something quick and the Tamiya 20mm Flakvierling fit the bill.

Haven't decided if I'm going to put it in traveling or firing position. Assembly was pretty straightforward. Guns are off and will be painted separately although I dunno if I will drill out the muzzles or get aftermarket barrels.

So far, it's fun. Still need to decide which half-track it's going to be towed behind.

Thanks, Rui. My bigger half tracks all have guns. But I suppose it's not too much of a stretch to think a gun track might pull a gun trailer.

Hi Mark, There is an Afrika Korps photo, where a Sd.Kfz. 10/4 20 MM.A.A. SELF-PROPELLED GUN is towing a 3,7cm Anti-Tank Gun (PaK35/36), so every thing could be possible...

That's all the evidence I need! In my case, I'm doing my fleet in Feldgrau and I'll probably put a winter wash on a couple of them.
