KORA seems to be riding the wave of interest in paper Panzers. They are producing a series of vehicles planned on the Jagdpanzer 38(d) base (actually a Hetzer with longer hull and new engine). The Flakpanzer 38(d) was intended to use a Kugelblitz turret armed with two 30 mm guns and two 20 mm cannons.

The kit contains more than 50 resin parts, a small PE fret and two needles, which you need to cut to the correct length for the gun barrels. The casting of most parts is good, but I found one hole from an air bubble in the edge of the turret ring, which is quite an unfortunate place. Maybe I can say, that it is battle damage? Some details are soft, especially the leaf springs. The tracks are made in several straight sections and you must bend them around the sprocket and idler.

There are no decals in this kit. Since it is a paper Panzer, you can use any German decals from your spares box you like.
