Much feared by the Allies, the German 88mm Flak gun is the best know multipurpose field gun of World War II. Originally developed as an anti-aircraft gun, it proved to be deadly in the anti-tank role and extracted a large toll on Allied armour and aircraft. Like the earlier Flak 18 and Flak 36, the Flak 37 was mounted on a crucifix platform and towed using detachable limbers (trailers or bogies). The 88mm Flak guns were typically towed by the Sd. Kfz 7 half-track. This new model from Dragon depicts the Flak 37 and features the final design's improved gun layer's controls as well as two extra styles of gun shields. This kit also features several subtle improvements over the earlier Flak 36 kit.
One new decal sheet sheet provides a range of markings specific to the Flak 37 including kill rings for the barrel, gun identifying letters (3 sizes of A-C), dials, tyre pressure markings for the limber's wheel arches and tank & aircraft profiles to indicate combat successes for the gun shield. A second decal sheet contains a large range of 75 divisional markings (division emblems for Panzer Divisions 1 through to 14), Balkan Crosses and shipping stencils for the 251 family (this sheet is from a Sdkfz 251/1 C). No doubt the spare markings will be welcomed for other kits. Painting and marking plans are provided for three guns being the one on the box art in Ossenbeng Germany 1945, one from the Eastern Front, the Herman Goring Panzer Division in Sicily and another from a unit in Germany in 1945. With the wide range of decal markings provided modelers plenty of other guns could be depicted.
