    1. Pak 40 7,5cm anti tank cannon
    2. Scale 1:16
    3. Publisher: DrafModel #1/06
    4. Distributor : All major netshops, included DrafModel.
    5.Site :

    The book.

    The print is very good.No delamination of the paper.The color and details sre also very good.Paperthickness is perfect.No problems with any part.

    The model contains almost 1600 parts all in all.

    The instructions are very very good. Almost 180 3D drawings will guide you easily to the goal.

    The fit of the parts must be 10 out of 10!
    During the build I didn't have to trim one single part.
    All parts down to the smallest had a perfect fit.

    Difficult level.
    I'm not sure about this one....
    No part is very hard to make.
    As long as the most common teckniques are mastered the build will be a thrill!!
    If I should rate thge difficult level, it would get a 6 out of 10

    DrafModel also does a lasercut addon for this one.
    I would highly recommend the lasercut kit for this build!!

    So if I should give my honest opinion about this kit.....Go and get it now!!!!
    It's the most fun build I have done.
    So hats off to Rafal Drzymulski for the design of this brilliant kit!!

    1600 parts?

    Did they model the breechblock right down to the firing pin, or what?

    I couldn't even imagine starting something at that level, I live in absolute awe of you guys that build such.

    Johnny, what a beautiful build! Following your thread has definately put this on my must have list! Haven't seen it on the two North American sites I buy from, but I will keep looking! Thanks for the awesome photos, too!

    1600 parts might sounds like an overwhelming amount....but actually the build was easy to do.
    The toughest part was the barrel (if you make it the way it should) But it's of course an option not to make the inner part with the "rills"
    And with the lasercuts it's just been an amazing experience.
    As long as all parts fit just perfect, no headscratching are neccesary :)

    So take my advice and grab this one!!
