Great review. Now a question. Does this kit share any of the plastic from Dragon's previous 2cm Flak 38 kit (#6288)? Or is this a completely new mold? Just curious.

Unfortunately I have not seen that kit, so I can answer that question. Sorry

I'd venture a guess that sprues A & B are the same, along with some of the smaller sprues. The one with the handwheels and shield looks new and possibly the gun itself. The gun looks the same as was included in the Flakpanzer 38(t) (which also included A & B)so it appears that the handwheel sprue is the new addition to the kit.

Great review. I am still trying to decide if I should this to my collection of German Flak Guns since I have the Tristar kit. Thoughts??

Thanks for the feedback, James! I might just get this one myself just to complement the 6288 kit I have.
