Unconfirmed source suggests it was a one of a kind field conversion with 19 Panzer Division, Bohemia April 1945. Therefore not total fantasy. Does make me wonder if Lady Penelope's roller is on the drawing board. ;D

And some more, in French.[urlhttp://www.materielsterrestres39-45.fr/fr/index.php/chars-de-l-axe-allemagne/227-les-bricolages/600-flak-88-mm-sur-chassis-de-panzer-iv][/url]

I have worked out what was wrong with the Panzer I, no rear idler wheel.

The photographs look like they were taken in a junk yard post war (US helmet on one person in a photograph, civilian sitting in another).

There are some highly dubious photographs out there, an 88 with shield on a T34, something that looks like a Rheintochter launcher...

The T-34 / 88 picture was shown to be a fake on Missing -Lynx . Both the gun with crewman and the tank with crew on the ground photos were shown side by side  , nice photo shop though , There's a neat one of a 20mm flak in the back of a Schimmelwagen , neat but fake  ::) . In the pictures somtec posted , I think the gun on the left behind the 234 is probably a Hummel , notice the armored upper hull . From a  distance , a  front view of  the Hummel's 150mm gun in elevation looks like  a 88. Al lsorts of weird and wonderful ( for kitbashers ) one off type of vehicles found in the junk yard pictures taken after the war . Seen grainy pictures of a  251 with a French H-35 turret mounted on it , now wether it was a real conversion or just stacking a turret on the hull of a damaged 251 , don't knew , but it looks cool .

I saw those pictures of the 88 on a Pzkw IV in Panzerwrecks.  I'd have to page through them to tell you which one.
It would be a fun kit to have.

Nice.

Are you doing a DAK crew?

A dedicated DAK crew would be great!
   So would a crew in greatcoats...
And a crew in service shirts,  the list could go on and on.

 You could make multi-part figures, which they will be, and add additional arms with the sleeves rolled up, along with regular sleeved arms.And if you made the torsos  in the German M-36 tunic with open collar, you would have a set for North Africa, Western and the Eastern fronts.

Great looking gun ,and  we all want one but with our own particular crew . I'm partial to a crew Hitler Youth Girls myself  ( seen some nice 1/48 pewter ones by Aurora IRC ) ) for a Berlin 45 dio  . But seriously , maybe Rubicon should release a 2 or 3 sprue multi  arm of service gun crew . I can't see rolled sleeves , great coats or bundled up winter figures  all in the gun kit box . Not to mention we're going to need the same kind of seated figures for the tow vehicle right guys ?   ::) 

I was wrong , they are 1/35 , damm

My last post was pertaining to a generic gun crew which could be used on all fronts, not including crews in greatcoats and or parkas all in one box.

Girls und Flakgun, eh Ripley?  I'm sure those miniskirts are entirely accurate...

I'd like a crew in greatcoat and a DAK crew, but obviously Rubicon can't satisfy everyone.  This is going to be a popular model.

Actually rolled and unrolled sleeves would work for DAK and Russian summer.

Russian winter however...
