One of the main attractions of Tamiya’s 1/48 Military Minature Series is how easily the kits canbe integrated into dioramas, especially ones that involve aircraft of the same scale. With theaddition of the Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind, Tamiya gives modelers yet another interesting subjectfor such projects.

About the Flakpanzer IV Wirbelwind.

As the Luftwaffe lost air superiority, Allied fighter-bombers proved to be an increasingly dangerousthreat to the German army, and plans were developed to produce a purpose-built mobile antiaircraftplatform to protect the ground units from air attack. The Wirbelwind was based on theproven Pz.kpfw.IV chassis and featured a uniquely-shaped open turret with 9 side panels. Armedwith quadruple 20mm Flak 38 L/112.5 fast-firing cannons, it was able to make life difficult forlow-flying Allied planes that got in its range as well as provide direct fire support for groundtroops. Due to material shortages, production was hampered and there were never enough ofthese vehicles to go around.
