"Feindliches Flugzeug eingehend..." The 2cm FlaK 38 was not only the primary
German light anti-aircraft gun, but by far the most numerously produced German
artillery piece throughout the war.

Other than as a standalone piece with crew in firing or on tow stance, possible
scenario include being mounted on a SdKfz 7/1, or on a Bltiz or Maulter...





Enjoy!
;)

Looks very good.  But could we have some non-German field weapons before this?

More work done on the FlaK 38.  Now with the mobile carriage.  While being transported the FlaK shields are folded sideways with the gunner seats removed.  In some instances, the shields are simply removed.





Enjoy!

Might be an idea for a accessory set - Ammo boxes  . rubicon  could do a German set , clips and 2 clip boxes for the 20mm flak , as well as metal and wood boxes for the 50mm pak , wood boxes and metal tubes for the 75mm pak , and a variety of wood boxes for the long barrel kwk 75mm of the Panther  and the Tiger's 88 . A set of 6 pounder  metal boxes as well wooden boxes for the US 75mm , and wood boxes for the Russian 76 , 85 , 122 mm  might work as a Allies set .  Could also just make them in resin and sell them in 10 piece bubble packs , they do that a lot in 1/35 scale

That is very nice, way better than any of the pewter ones out there - I see an SdKfz 7/1 in my future...
 That said, will the 3.7cm flak 36/37/43 get the same treatment ? Playing late war I'd particularly favour the last of those.

Hi, Can you please make the gun barels slightly overscale to be less fragile for gaming.
These normally are the first things to break and can be a pain to repair.

Overall, this looks to be another superb offering and a world apart from others on the market.

I second this.  Or provide an optional set of overscale barrels.  These are simply too fragile for wargaming.  If they are true to scale, they will be even thinner than the 1/48 scale Tamiya Flakvierling barrels, which are very fine.

And please start on some Allied artillery, like the 2-pdr and 6-pdr/57mm.  The Germans have had plenty of love now...

Perhaps an optional set of barrels is the way to go. I wouldn't like to see such a nice model messed up with very obviously oversize barrels. I don't know whether there are any other solutions to minimising damage (apart from leaving it in a glass case!).

I am not sure if this is technically feasible, but:

Is it possible to supply turned (not cast) metal barrels as an option? I understand this would require some special design work as there would have to be sufficient space to provide a suitable socket within the body of the gun and working with a new medium and the supplier issues that would entail.
