1:35 German 8.8cm Flak 18 anti-aircraft gun AFV Club AF 35088
This is the 1:35 German 8.8cm Flak 18 anti-aircraft gun AFV Club AF 35088
Another good comparison of authentisity against the flourishing set by their rival. No figure and accessories are included. But the aim of the design of the AFV Club kit is seemed to be set on reproducing the perfect miniature of the real gun as they did with other German guns and howitzers before. The sighting and control devices situated on both sides of the 88mm gun cradle are broken down into many parts to reproduce its complicated mechanism. AFV CLUB got a success, but modelers have to be careful to remove the tiny and delicate parts from the sprue and clean up the excess plastics. The lathed aluminum barrel has riflings at the muzzle. The metal tubes are provided for equilibrators and recuperator cylinders. An excellent model of the ordnance. FlaK.18 is the older design of the 88mm gun. It was often seen on the early stage of the war, especially in North Africa.
