    Greetings everyone,
    right now I'm in the process of designing a Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind. I have finished the turret but now I need to make the FlaKvierling 38. I really need some profile drawings that I could design with. I have searched quite extensively but found nothing useful. :cry:

    Thanks,
    Will

    A web site to try

    http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10000209

    Its a Japanese model site that scan some of the model instructions and puts them onto the site. The colour instuctions could be quite useful as could the assembly guides. have a look at PLASTIC MODELS - 1/35 (OTHERS) there is a Tamiya Flak 38 that may be of use.

    Turns out Clifford already had one in the works. I pretty much picked up on his. After I finalized it (he'll probably change the s*** out of it), I started on a Mobelwagen, the beta of which is done. I'd have to check with him, but they will probably be available within the next few months. As for the Bren, I'll start on it in a few days.

    Cool! Can we see some pics soon? The Mobelwagen is pretty cool, will you be putting the FlaKvierling 38 on it as well?

    Historically there was only a single Mobelwagen prototype with the Flak 38 installation. The production version used the 37mm flak gun. Makes sense - use a gun which will outrange the weapons on a fighter.

    Regards,
