Flakpanzer IV Mobelwagen

Flakpanzer IV Mobelwagen

Postby mausmann » 04 Apr 2012

2cm Flakvierling auf Fahrgestell Panzerkampfwagen IV (Sf) SdKfz 161/3?, unless I've got it wrong. I've seen a pic of this heavily cammo'd so tried to reproduce it as best I could. Naked first before I covered all the paint up.....usual suspects for the crew.

And with foliage added.

Nice one John.

Another option is to make the production & operational one, by replacing the Flakvierling with a FlaK43 (form their sWS)

Well done

Very nice indeed. Am I correct in saying that it's in the transport mode with the sides up and they lowered them for action...???

Cheers,

Steve, that's correct but there was also a "halfway" in which the hooks were used to allow the side walls to be let out from the vertical but still provided the crew with protection, the rear view is of the 37mm but they both looked the same.

I'm sure..........I missed my Mum's 80th celebrations this weekend gone, and would have been up in front of the CO on charges if I was sat hiding at home pretending to be offshore........... :blink:

I painted and based this, along with 27 other pieces starting with the T72s (posted on the 27th Feb iirc) between 26th of Feb and the 18th March, a production rate of 1.4 per day............. :ugeek:

OKD is planning an increase in production when the workshop recommences painting........... :grin:

I based it on the left hand side vehicle in this pic, at least 1 got operational if this is correct..... :scratch:
It's the same pic that came in the box with the model. The quad is visible on that pic but not so clear on this one.

Both are the production Mobelwagen with 3,7cm Flak43.

Easily detectable by the small secondary shield mounted on the gun, and slightly higher than the main shield
