Griffon Model 1/35 Flakpanzer 38(t) folding armor plates and compartment doors






Dragon kits


Scott Van Aken

Designed for either the recent Dragon  Flakpanzer 38(t), this is a set of upper folding armor plates and engine compartment doors. It is a rather complex set as the modeler has to construct the movable hinges for the doors and plating as well as the many handles that are involved. As you can see by the image of the set above, you get three sheets of photo etch as well as some wire to assist in constructing the hinges and handles.

The instructions are quite complete and show you every step of assembling these racks. While at first it seems as if the instructions are redundant, they actually provide the build in layers to be sure that you are able to get everything in its proper place. Though no ammunition is supplied, you can get that from a variety of sources.

Those who have used Griffon Model sets know how nice they are and this one is no different. The set is superbly etched and will add a lot to your particular build.
