Airfix 1/76 88mm Flak en Sd.Kfz.7 tractor

Posted by huib on 23 May 2022, 13:14

Sd.Kfz.7 tractor towing an 88mm Flak 37 gun.
Luftwaffe (German Air Force) unit
21. Panzer Division, Deutsches AfrikaKorps
Libia 1942
Airfix 1/76


The old but nice Airfix kit from 1967 was improved by small conversions and adding a lot of detail. The figures are 3D printed, bought on Ebay and adapted a bit.

The details on that flak gun and the tractor are superb. The bottom photos look very authentic.

Excellent work with the pictures displaying a period feel.

It’s nice to see these childhood models brought up to date in such style.

Best wishes,

Chris

Fantastic work, a quite amazing transformation of that much-loved but rather basic old Airfix Gun and Tractor kit into something that looks very realistic indeed. The photos are great as well!

I agree with all that has been said above. A greatly loved kit beautifully improved and painted. And certainly the figures are a huge improvement on the originals!!
