But Takom has more problems with them than WW1 tanks. :-)






Yes. My first Takom kit was the 12.8cm Flakzwilling 40.



Same problems with the kit?



Yes, poor fit in several places and some missing details that should have been obvious to those cutting the molds. Still looks impressive when done, but could have been much better.

My mate has build this kit last month. Meng offers better quality than Takom.

Some photos for discussion only. I've tried to make observation slits like on a photos. Rather hard to use 0,1mm drill.

Hello,friends! Quite a big promotion.I have connected parts of the body. The connection is very poor. Big details don't fit well to each other. I was very dissapointed about it. The mounting of the exhaust pipe and the convoy lamp have been completed. In the trunk I have put a bit of luggage. The tracks from MK are very good!

Still a lot of work ahead.

Thanks for this wonderful build. It's going to make my build (when I ever get around to it) so much easier since you did all the hard work of finding all the flaws.

Greetings! I am back with a big update!

I have worked with sponsoon almost a month. It was a terrible work. Sponsoon have almost killed me. They didn't fit at all to the hull. So I have decided to do all this my may. I am not satisfied with my work. And this is the final and the best attempt to build something alike.
