Last few times I've tried to do something at my modelling bench, I've had one of these on my shoulder and the other on the bench:

Assuming they've grown out of that, I'll have a tilt at this:

That was one on my possibles list but if this goes ahead i have set myself a bit of a challenge with the Alan models Gepard flakpanzer (38)t.

ive been hoarding AA kits over the years cos i do have real world experience so have an interest and always planned on making a start on them some time

I spent some time last night looking through my etch box and found more sets that i thought i had for aa afv's so someplace in the loft i have a number lurking. Found updates to do the skif strela which i had completely forgotten.

But on reflection i will stick with my first idea.

Certainly gets you thinking and planning - enjoying it already :-)

Surely there must be one more member that wants to build an AA gun of sorts when the scope is so wide?
By just looking at the German WWII flak range you've got enough models and variants to fill a whole page here, and that's just one country and 5 years in history...

And if ww2 is not your thing there are some many more vehicles across later time periods that could be used. How about a vietnam era M42 Duster, avenger, sgt york, chapparel, vulcan based on the m113. Or go rocket based with some of the sam kits available - the list goes on and on.

Go on please - someone jump on board :-)

Well I make that 10!
Good call @spanner570 . I will open a forum up and add a chat thread where you can introduce the build and list the members that have put their names down. and all that.
