Whilst trawling thru the many forums I belong too, I noticed an advert on the Steve Dean forum, selling a Bolt Action 88mm Flak. Its the original metal rendition, prior to the sale of the company to Warlord Games, and its a hefty bit of kit!!!
Look at it, in all its shiny shiny metal glory. Good thing is, I can leave off the Barndoor shield, and pass it off as a Flak18 as used by the Legion Condor in Spain. The crew will pass muster too, I may swap a couple of heads, or add some more Spanish looking figures to complement them.
Of course every good 88mm requires a towing vehicle, there is the mighty Sdkfz7 that I mastered for Bolt Action
But I thin I shall make myself one of these instead, as they were used in Spain for a multitude of tasks, not just as tows for the 88mm
Henschel D33 truck, nice big heavy duty vehicle, should not be too hard to scratch together.
Sadly it will not get passed on for casting. Following a number of crap comments on various forums, regarding the quality of previous masters I have built, I shall no longer make any more vehicles for other people. Selfish, yes maybe it is, but when you put a lot of effort into making something, its not nice to see it getting trashed in a public forum.
So I shall build for myself, and get a few items cast up, by myself as well.
I have one final model to make for my good friend Paul Hicks, and that will be it from me.
So, sadly that means no PBR either, sorry folks.
