Look at the 128mm anti-aircraft gun next to it. That looks really nice.

Nice, I also have a Wurzburg Riese (from Schatton) but that thing is also "Riesengross" Now we have the gun laying radars to accompany the AA batteries.

That 12.8cm Flak really catches my eye. My grandfather was a ball turret gunner on a B-17G from very late '44 until war's end. He told me all about "88's" but they were really afraid of the "105's" (10.5cm). He included that around major targets they had "something even bigger" but never specified. I've always assumed it to be this.

Maybe in a later kit ....
Some want the trailer and some want only the gun for a diorama and don't want to spend $$ on the trailer parts.
That 4-axle trailer is a large kit in itself ...

Shell would be correct though the heavy duty transport for the gun does look very interesting!

Just by looking at the picture I get the impression that the trailers/axles for the FlaK 18 or 36/37 could work.
Just guessing though ...

Thanks!!
This reminded me about this kit:
https://www.scalemates.com/kits/948537-des-kit-35086-radar-fumg-39d-fumg-62-flak-w-rzburg-1941-45-with-sd-anh-104


The trailer is used in a few more of their kits
http://deskit.online.fr/02_pages/03_materiels_35/materiels_allemands_35/materiels_allemands_35.htm
or
https://www.scalemates.com/kits/172004-des-kit-35061-3-7-cm-flak-mounted-on-sdanh-04-trailer


including nr 35061 which is a conversion for Tamiyas FlaK 37.
The conversion consists of the trailer and a new lower part of the gun mount.
