I read a very negative review on that 88mm Kit.
So beware it might be cheap for a very good reason.

Wibblywobbly worked on a part built kit and turned it into the final article, which is now in my possession. I also have a ready assembled model. What were the negatives?

I had a Flak 88, and I don't reckon that would work, the axles are superscale and weak, you would only be keeping the wheels which someone somewhere would happily design and 3D print for a lot less money (no not me, lol, too much on the workbench). :haha:

The actual criticism escapes me but I have avoided the kit ever since.

The 88mm of century toys is a very detail piece. I sold mine because the scale is 1/18, but for me it was very details for a "toys" and display during a show, it was fantastic.

Yes i want to buy this kit and have a play with it myself, seems a very reasonable price for the scale of it, but of course we need to get a 1/16 scale of it. Hopefully before Christmas i may have that sorted.....
