Roden 1/72 8,8 cm Flak 36 auf VOMAG **review** (by Erhan Atalay)



Hello dear friends,

Here is Roden's new kit released in 2014. Selbsttfahrlafette auf Fahrgestell VOMAG 7 or 660 mit 8,8 cm Flak.. Interesting and remarkable vehicle.
Erhan..


8,8 cm Flak 36 auf Vomag - German anti-aircraft vehicle of World War II, developed by the Vomag firm on a strong triple axle chassis able to bear the installation of the heavy 88mm Flak 36 anti-aircraft gun. It was originally planned as a special vehicle for anti-aircraft defense as part of a mobile battalion protecting the highest officials of Germany. Later it was transferred to the air defenses protecting against the raids of allied aircraft on the cities of Germany. In 1944 the unit was almost completely destroyed in battles with the Soviet armies in the territories of Romania and Hungary. In total 20 cars were produced of this type, none of which survived World War II.

147 plastic parts, one transparent plastic, one plastic mesh in the content. Details are satisfactory and clean mold. I would not be problems in fitting.  













I immediately began to model ..


first moves to shorten the chassis :)


I like the engine details.






wheels are annoying,  need putty and sanding ..


but it looks nice when finished :)
