3.7 cm FLAK 43

Manufacturer: Planet Models (Kit No. MV 007)

Another excellent gun kit from Planet Models. All of the resin parts are crisply molded with abundant detail. The gun barrel is slightly warped, but that shouldn't be too hard to fix. It includes the gun base stand, as well as the towing rig.

The brass parts are excellent as well. There are a couple pieces I will likely replace with bent brass wire for more dimension, but for the most part, the parts breakdown of this model is very well thought-out. The instructions are superb; they're better than some plastic companies I have seen. I am almost certain that this is the gun that was used on the Mobelwagen self-propelled AA gun mount, so it would make an excellent gun for a conversion project, along with a Panzer IV. This kit is highly recommended.
