Sd.Kfz. 7 with towed 88mm Flak 37


In addition to the crew figures, the half-track comes with two optional canvas roof tops to display both opened and closed.

The 8.8cm Flak gun is an old kit and I found it riddled with mold seams which took for ever to try and eliminate. There are far better and more detailed kits now available of this important historical gun.

Seeing this I got an idea. I imagine it could be fun making an extra large diorama ground surface, like a desert area, and then, just use that for photos with models, that way one can just store the whole thing without the models on it in the shed or somewhere else.

Thanks Brian, Rui and Treehugger :)

@ Rui - These are all new pictures, but I was fast running out of useable natural lighting when I took them, so didn't have the time to fluff about with close ups. The original album had more close-ups, which I may re-upload at some point. ;)

@ Treehugger - I was thinking of purchasing some of those pre-made landscape mats for doing something very similar for taking finished pictures. I don't have the skills, or display space to do diorama's unfortunately. But I do enjoy looking at other peoples displays.

That takes up alot of shelf space. Hopefully you have a glass enclosed place to keep them.

Yes, I have a number of glass wall units to display everything in and to keep the dust out. ;)
