FlakPanzer IV Wirbelwind

Hello everyone !

Heres my last complete build, a Tamiya Wirbelwind.
I use to present a vehicle pics in the PanzerWrecks X (in the back pages). It was wrecked in the city of Orbec (in Basse Normandie) during '44 summer and photographed by canadian troops.
(here :https://maps.google.fr/maps?q=49.021674,0.403379&hl=fr&ll=49.021703,0.40363&spn=0.001794,0.010568&sll=49.021730,0.403591&layer=c&cbp=11,328.72,,0,-24.51&cbll=49.0217,0.403628&t=k&z=17&panoid=vGKaqTgobDYoVeIR2G8Dfw )

The captions explain that this vehicle was part of the Pz.Fla-Zug du SS/-Pz.Rgt.12 Hitlerjugend, and this is one of the earliest Wirbelwind.
PanzerWrecks quote: "Compared with a production vehicle, the turret is different in a number of way : the armour angle, the lack of hinged flap (just a slot here).

I add to it a Rb model Flak barrel,Hauler Wirbelwind Photoetched set and some scratch.
