1⁄35Dragon Fires Again - Flak 37
Assembly – Stages 34 to 36Final construction and assembly of the shield, it’s attachments, the travel lock, and ammunition cases. You have a choice here of which brackets to hold the cable reels with on top of each fender. Having no definitive references, I went with the box art and used the solid brackets. The presses shield I think, looks great and so I had decided earlier to go with this. In an attempt to better represent the thickness of the shield, all the shields in the kit have bevelled edges. With a new number 23 blade and a bit of fine wet and dry these bevels can be removed, but I have to wonder why this isn’t done in the mould?
All the separate parts were now painted and weathered in exactly the same manner as the main gun, with the addition of some Mig pigment (European dust) to tie everything together. When dry, the various sub-assemblies were attached to each other with absolutely no fit problems, and photographed!
in conclusionA beautiful kit. Not without problems, but nothing huge or insurmountable. A complicated build that is best built and painted as sub-assemblies, and is very definitely not for the beginner.
