Griffon Model 1/35 2cm FlaK 38 upgrade set, vehicle mount






Dragon kits


Scott Van Aken

This Griffon Model set is for any Dragon 1/35 vehicle mounted FlaK 38. Looking things over, it almost looks like it would work for a towed version, but then it would not include anything that is below the gun mount.

Typical of Griffon Model sets, this one is superbly done and offers a level of detail that is second to none, including various hinges to allow parts to be opened or closed, posed up or down. To help facilitate that, there are several diameters of wire as well as plastic rod included in the set.

This is not for the faint of heart and it would be most useful if the builder has done some simpler sets prior to tackling this one. However, if one goes slowly and follows the very detailed instructions, success will be yours.

As you can see from the illustration, pretty much every part is either embellished or replaced using this set. According to the instructions, there are bits for both the early and the late version of this gun, so all bases have been covered.

The end result will be an outstandingly detailed replica.
