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.
Congrats on your very nice Falkpanzer. I am particularly impressed by the work you made on the modified sproket, new return rollers, bruned out road wheels and the invisible (!!!) interior. Nice details indeed.
there is a small hole next to the cross on the right side as well as one next to the engine compartment on the same level. If you look on the big photo on the last page of the book. I am just wondering why it would burn out outside... maybe there are more "holes" under the fenders which are not seen?
Eagle eyes ! I hadn't saw the hole on the engine compartment !
Yes, why the road wheels have burnt is a good question !
In the large photo, we can see some black spots in the hull side, under the return wheels, maybe some small caliber shell which could not penetrate the hull ..
Or maybe a flying embers from the turret ...
I have always found the look of those spacial -oppss, special I mean- Pz IV AA versions (Mobelwagen, Wirbelwind and Kugelblitz) unique. Good choice.
In terms of assembly, I think this one has a lot of good work involved -like the interior and many exterior details-. Talking about painting, IMHO, my first impression was that the wheatering was too constrained. And now that you have showed us your source of inspiration I still think the same.
Please, take it as a constructive comment because knowing that you can manage the challenge of a partialy burned out tank, seems to me that to move one step forward in the wheatering wonīt be a difficult task for you.
Don'y worry, I take it as a very constructive comment !
And yes, i know that my weathering is too constrained .. But i was scared to fall in over weathering model ... Especially with respect to streaks on the front, but they doesn't looks like at the base ..
But I was always disappointed by my paint ... lol
