Tristar’s 20mm anti-aircraft gun. It was built in April 2015.
I’ll try to make the anti-aircraft gun of the German Army. Actually, I had somehow gotten only this figure set, when I was grumbling I wonder it’s no use. I received it from a frequent viewer of this website who is not making the kit anymore. It would be a very thankful gift. I’ll introduce the figure set of this anti-aircraft gun later.
Tamiya released a similar kit in 1978, it is a spot sales item so if we have lucky timing it’s available. Maybe the Tristar model is more detailed, because of the later model. Unfortunately, it’s no produced, Tristar now goes into suspended activities. I suppose some company purchases the metal molds and re-produce.
There are 20 rounds in one magazine. About 3 shots firing speed per second, didn’t take 10 seconds to consume one magazine. By the way, modern 20mm can fire 50 shots in one second. The angle of elevation was fixed, but the turret itself rotate.
I think it’s a much more realistic feeling with the attaching of magazine cases and spare barrel cases. It is also interesting such a small kit so easy to make. I recommend sometimes these handy assemble kits, it’s interesting. I attached 3 figures for this 20mm FLAK on another page.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
