Wirbelwind in print!

I just got news that my Flakpanzer Wirbelwind appears in next issue of Military Illustrated Modeller!

For me it was a challenging project - fitting the Trumpeter interior into the DML hull, soldering PE fenders, making zimmerit from putty and using some new techniques for painting. I based it on a reference image from Panzerwrecks book. 

Check the magazine when it is out and now you can see some images of the completed model. 

At the show...


  1. Nice! I think this mag has some of the best models of any magazine out there, and your Wirbelwind will certainly fit in.

    What colors did you use for the 2cm Flak guns?


    1. thanks, Kyle. The barrels are painted with Vallejo Model Air "Gun" and Mig dark wash on top.
