The newest 1/72 Dragon Armor is an amazing replica of a German 8.8cm Flak 36 gun, and naturally it’s been newly tooled. Originally an antiaircraft weapon, the “88” was one of the most famous weapons of WWII, and several variants were produced. One of them was the Flugzeugabwehrkanone (Flak) 36, which was in its element when serving as an anti-tank cannon. The 7.4-tonne gun could be readied for action in just 2.5 minutes. Muzzle velocity was 820m/ and it was particularly deadly against enemy tanks. Entering service in 1936/37, it was commonly fitted with a shield to protect crewmembers when engaging ground targets.
Dragon Armor’s first depiction of the Flak 36 shows a weapon in action during the bloody Battle of Stalingrad in 1942, a conflagration that culminated in a massive defeat for German forces. The gun on its cruciform platform is painted in a typical early-war camouflage scheme of gray. This particular weapon has had a stunning career as illustrated by the number of kill marks chalked on the armored shield. This was a legendary weapon of WWII, and Dragon’s model is accomplished in both its level of detail and finish.
