3,7 cm FlaK 43

By Faustnik - jmqtv(at)iol.pt

Manufacturer: LEVA Productions (Kit #72A01)



A simple kit which anyone could assemble without too much trouble. If you have a couple of photos the assembly will be no problem, just remember that this is a simplified version of the FlaK in the Sd.Kfz 7 AA Half-tracks, and it has a curious mount.

My problem with this model, and all my LEVA models, is the resin, which seems to be a little rubbery to my taste, especially in the barrel, as I can't put it right, so I will replace it with a turned brass one from Milicast - just right for this scale. Also the shield is a little too thick to my taste; here a photo-etched solution would be a excellent solution.

If the base is a nice touch, for those who wants to made a isolated model, it could be a problem in a diorama or if you want the weapon to be mount in a vehicle.


As far as scale is concern, using the available sources, it seems to be at 1:72.

A nice model for your collection, but I believe that there are better offerings from others producers.
