1/144 8.8cm Flak auf Sonderfahrgestell - Matuo Kasten

1/144 8.8cm Flak auf Sonderfahrgestell - Matuo Kasten

its been a while since I posted an item coming out of the Matuo Kasten workshops, but here is an impressive item to add to your array of Whermacht Flak Panzers!

One of 3 prototypes based upon a heavily modified Pz.IV chassis to help counter the threat of Allied air power as early as 1942! However despite support for the Luftwaffe, the various issues and failings encountered in trails lead to the project was abandoned in 1944.

The kits is nicely details and doesnt contain to many onerous parts or micro detailing, so it should go together quite nicely.

The vehicle is featured in on the Achtung Panzer Grille Series page, and Panzer Tracts No. 12-1 - Flakpanzerkampfwagen IV and other Flakpanzer projects development and production from 1942 to 1945   
It must be noted that Matuo Kasten has also the larger 17cm Grille on the web site and other Flak Panzers!

For Further information

Ordering would be via Radjapan or HLJ
