I'm in need of a WW2 German heavy gun, an 88mm or bigger (128mm?) weapon in 1:35 scale. If anyone has something suitable going spare, it would be much appreciated. Can trade or pay.

Do you mean the whole gun (i.e. a Flak '88) or just the barrel and mantlet from a tank?

The barrel and muzzle brake are the bits I really need. And since my last post, I've discovered I have a long 88 spare (my Dragon King Tiger has three in the kit!) so it's really only a 128mm I'm looking for now - the 88 could work, but it's slightly weedy for what I want it for. :)

Don't have any in my stash sorry - there are however quite a few 1/35 128mm metal barrels available from various companies such as Barrel Depot, Lion Roar and Voyager.

Thought I hadn't got anything but then I looks through the box of 1/35th tank bits I got off ebay and found this:



1. I'm not sure what it is.

2. It has no muzzle brake or mantlet with it (but then the 128mm didn't have a muzzle break either)

3. It's definately bigger than an 88mm L-43 (got a couple)

4. It's smoothly tapered, not stepped, which means it isn't an 88mm L-71. Having said that, the 128mm doesn't appear to have had much taper at all.... :unsure:

Anyway, you can have it if you want - PM me.

Mkhulu - the 90mm would be very welcome as well.
