This item is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
The famous "88" anti-aircraft guns in 1915 first by German development as air defense weapon used against the enemy's high-altitude aircraft and observation balloons. The gun is mainly designed by the German navy 8.8 caliber naval gun, the first - a prototype completed in 1917. However, in the first paragraph 8.8 cm type L / 5618 anti-aircraft gun production prototype to with Sweden until 1928 and is a confirmed fox company (Bofors) work together to complete. Later in the 1930 s used to improve the design and production of Flak36 and Flak37 anti-aircraft guns. Make Germany can launch its war in 1939. But in the war German anti-aircraft requires more long-range artillery and Rhine metal company (Rheinmetall) on the development range longer 8.8 cm L71 Flak41 anti-aircraft gun's mission. The cannon can launch 9.4 kg to 11.300 meters in height and its performance more than the 12.8 mm anti-aircraft guns. If the artillery gun by skilled operation can also be increased to 25 per minute of the degree. Because type Flak41 anti-aircraft guns are harder to repair. So most only used in Germany. It is estimated that the total is just 556, during world war ii reflecting 7 the complexity of its high cost and production.

Skill Level 3:
Basic Skills Required
Kits rated as skill level 3 are traditional model kits that require all basic modeling skills to complete. This includes cutting parts from runners and trimming or sanding them prior to use, assembling them with cement, and the use of paint to complete them.
To properly complete a level 3 kit, you should have at least a basic set of modeling supplies, including plastic nippers, a hobby knife, files and/or sandpaper, plastic cement, instant (cyanoacrylate) cement (for resin, soft-vinyl or metal parts), painting supplies including brushes, paint, thinner and masking tape, tweezers and possibly decal softener for applying decals to difficult areas.
Kits in this class are not suitable for small children unless there is complete parental supervision. Adults who have never before completed a plastic model kit may want to read one of the many excellent modeling guides available at most hobby shops before trying to build one of these kits.
Skill level 3 kits include a very large portion of our catalog. Most traditional plastic model kits fall into this category.
This item requries the use of cement (glue) to complete.
For injection-plastic kits, use the weld-type clear cement specifically designed for use on styrene plastic. For some smaller parts, you may wish to use instant type (cyanoacrylate) glue.
For resin, white metal, soft vinyl and photo-etched materials, the use of instant type cement is strongly recommended.
A SAFETY NOTE ABOUT INSTANT CEMENT
Parents and all modelers should note that instant cement (cyanoacrylate) bonds skin instantly. While this in itself is not harmful, forcibly attempting to pull the skin apart can tear the skin and cause injury. If you or your child happens to inadvertenly glue themselves with instant cement, don't pull, but use remover for instant cement, or nail polish remover to dissolve the bond instead.
This model kit or accessory must be painted in order to achieve a realistic appearance.
While there are slight differences depending on the country you live in, there are generally three types of paint available for modeling: Acrylic, Enamel and Lacquer. Their characteristics are described below.
