Hi, I am wondering if anyone can confirm for me if the turret of a Flakpanzer III Ostwind is the same turret as used on a Flakpanzer IV Ostwind? I picked up the Revell (formerly MACO) Flakpanzer III Ostwind kit and would like to use the turret with either a Revell or Dragon Panzer IV chassis to make it into a Flakpanzer IV Ostwind. I cannot recall if MACO originally issued a Flakpanzer IV Ostwind or not. Many thanks in advance. Wm. B.
Hi All, Here is the Tristar (now hobby Boss) Flakpanzer 38(t). This is a pretty challenging kit with a full interior, engine and gearbox none of which can be really seen when completed unless you have all the hatches open which spoils the lines somewhat. The 20mm cannon is very intricate and I would challenge anyone to get it 100% right first time round although most people could make a better job of the PE spent shell cage than I've done. Kit tracks are supposed to be workable but just kept snapping so I relented and bought Friuls. Almost all of these were lost in Normandy and made it clear to the Germans that one 20mm cannon was not up to the job of taking down Jabos. Usual C&C welcomed Thanks David
