Hasegawa 1/72nd WWII German Sd.Kfz 7/2 37m/mAA.

Comments: I had a hard time choosing between this and 20mm/AA version. I used the computer at hobby shop to try to investigate whether this version was used summer of 1943 but could not get any useful info. I ended choosing this version over the 20mmAA because of the higher caliber, however I found later that this 37m/mAA did not appear till late 43'. So if I get a chance I'll pick up the 20mmAA version. However this might be the next model on the work bench, so I can work out any kinks in building so other Sd.Kfz's come out better.

Hasegawa 1/72nd WWII German 88mm Gun Flak 18

Comments: This is another of the 1/72nd Hesegawa models that I picked up of a collection of another modeller, being sold at the local hobby shop. This is the exact box art work that I found on the internet (as opposed to scanning my box art). All the other box art I found were very close to the boxes I purchased except this one which is exact. I believe that this and the other models are from late 70's or early 80's. I'm planning to use this a an 88 being used at Kursk. After some investigating, I believe that this early version of the 88 my not of been at kursk, but I'm not positive and anyway I'm not that anal, so I'm going plan on 88 at kursk being fired while still on wheels.

Hasgawa 1/72nd German Mercedes Benz G4

Comments: I was in hobby shop and found in a different pile of models from some one's old re-sold collection  of a bunch of 1/72nd Hasegawa models. I had seen this model before and was thinking of it being used with Pegasus' "German's in Berlin 1945" since it has figure of Hitler with 2 young Hitler youth. I passed on that model a couple of years ago, so when I saw it again, I snapped it up. I'm glad I waited because this model was packaged in late 70's or early 80's ( from my research) and it contains swastika flags for the staff car, which seems to have been dropped in newer packaging of model. 


Progress: no progress. needs wash with soap.
