The name applies to a series of related guns, the first one officially called the 8.8 cm Flak 18, the improved 8.8 cm Flak 36, and later the 8.8 cm Flak 37.[N 1] Flak is a contraction of German Flugzeugabwehrkanone meaning "aircraft-defense cannon", the original purpose of the weapon. In English, "flak" became a generic term for ground anti-aircraft fire. In informal use, the guns were universally known as the Acht-acht ("eight-eight") by Germans and the "eighty-eight" by the Allies.[8.8 cm Flak 18/36/37/41-V
Used by the Germans in WWII, the Pak 40 makes other anti-tank guns look like toys. It can fire 10 shots per minute, and the force of one shot can blast through half a foot of steel. Watch as host Paul Shull fires one in the empty desert.
All the good parts
Here is a series on how to use the modulation painting system on armor. I found this way of paiting a to be a pain. It seems soemwhere I screw up the process. Hope this will help you. The process is shown over three videos.

Surprising they where camouflaged from the factory. Found this on a facebook relic hunter page. These guys have follow a lot of interesting items. Now you can make your ammo box just like what the germans used.Notice the three tone scheme on the 75mm boxes.
Did the Japanese have Tiger tanks - its been suggested for decades, and now here's the evidence. The story is pretty surprising and so are the photographs!
An EXCELLENT video. Well researched and a comprehensive coverage of the German vehicles.
The kit is a very nice set. The only problem is you only can build the tractor or anti-tank tractor. Boy I hate wasting plastic. This just drive my nuts... Well I got a brain flash, I will same thing as I did with the SU-100/SU-122. Just add some magnets to hold the lower section with the tracks on. Just need to do a little grinder away with the Dremel... Take a look at the pictures. Now you can have your choice for the battle.The anti-tank tractorAdded a 5mm diameter magnet to the bottom of the chassisLocate another on the lower chassisThe tractor chassis with magnetAssembled tractorLate world version with slab side.Front viewHope you like this simple conversion. Doubled your models for the table.
Here is the description. Amazing part is most of the vehicle is unrestored, just cleaned after coming out of the river. These photos should be a great addition in building a model of the Sdfk 250.More can be found here: Panzer FarmIntroducing Photos from SD Assembly. Kfz 250 extracted in 2015 from the river river. Work continues and there are plenty of details to mount. Special thanks to tomek, Jacek and wislawa, leading assembly works :)
This Ford truck was a work horse for the German Army during WW2. Nice to see ACE make nicely detail model of it. The kit is to be released in April
I manged to buy, on EBay, some long out of production Clockwork Goblin 15mm War Without End, a weird world war genre which became the 28mm Konflict '47.I have quite a few German walkers and a few of the infantry along with a small amount of US walkers and infantry. (I am always on the lookout for more if any of my readers have a hidden unwanted stock lol ;-)). I will be adding later war conventional forces as well.Here are some test pieces for the German heavy infantry, as you can see they are heavily armed with MG43s as their standard weapons.
