1/144 Flakpanzer IV Ostwind Turret for Conversion

1/144 Flakpanzer IV Ostwind Turret for Conversion
"Ostwind" - (East Wind) was developed as a successor to the "Wirbelwind" in an attempt to provide increased firepower against aircraft attacks for armour columns. A rapid firing 3.7cm Flak 43 was mounted in an open topped six sided turret nicked name "Keksdose" (Cookie Tin). The open topped design was adopted because of the heavy smoke generated by the gun during firing. The vehicle used the chassis of the "Work Horse" of the Wehrmacht, the Panzer IV. Because of the delay in production caused by Allies bombing facilities, only about 40+ vehicles were built. 

Available in painted Panzergrau, Dunkelgelb and Unpainted. Turret Only!!

This set contains one turret. Panzer IV chassis NOT included. Gun can be elevated. The turret pivot is 2.5mm in diameter and come with a ring adapter to enlarge the pivot to 5.7mm diameter. Should fit tanks from other manufacturers too.

Depending on which Panzer IV chassis you used, the turret pivot and the adapter might need to be cut short for fitting. Compatible with WTM, Dragon or 21st CC Pz.IVs
