1/144 88mm Flak Zugkraftwagen (FAMO)
The October 2010 Release by Panzer Depot: The German 88mm Flak 37 auf ZgKw 18t
or under its official titile "8.8cm Flak 37 Selbstfahrlafette auf 18 ton Zugkraftwagen", based upon a FAMO SDKFZ 9 with added armour and 88mm AA Gun.
Generally a nice looking rendition, some minor faults, and the 88mm looks slightly out of proportion as the photos give the appearance of a more slender barrel.
It would appear to be another triumph of (brute) syle over function, as only a small number were produced and all were issued to a single unit in Italy
