Hasegawa 1/72 Flakpanzer IV Möbelwagen conversion

The last details

And now for the finishing touch:

Image
Some hooks bent from thin iron wire.

Image
A tow cable made of copper wire.

Image
I nicked a piece of light blue tule from some gift wrap to use for the empty cartridge collector case.

Image
The tule was cot to size, glued to the frame using CA glue, and painted. On this scael the maze size is in fact too course, but the effect is quite nice.

Image
The gun shield is glued to the gun.

Image
Also the gunsight was installed. It is connected to the gun with a small piece of iron wire so it elevates up and down with the gun.

Image
All separate parts brought together.

Image
And with the side walls raised. Antenna mounted, tow cable installed. Finished!

Final pictures will arrive soon.

Again, great detailing here. :shock:

Your solution for the Fangkorb (cartridge collector basket) is a smart idea. :thumbup:

Fantastic work as always.

The fangkorb mesh is a great idea.

A nice base, some handsome fellows and a good background will bring your work to life.

Best wishes,

Chris
