    Doing a lovely FLAK36 to go with my sdkfz7. But I can find no pcoulour picture of the fire control dials.

    I didnt know that batteries of 8.8 Flak guns could be put together and controled from a central fire control station. Amazing Gun the 88. Well worth a read about it if you never have.

    Annoyingly Kev, I deleted a large folder of colour 88 pics last week as I thought I could always find 'em again. So I just went to tanxheaven which had loads of detail shots... only to find it's closed down :(.

    I know I've got a load of closeup shots I took at Fort Nelson but I'll have to find 'em first (10 CD's worth of hunting...), so for the moment here's the decal sheet from the Dragon kit which implies just a black background with glow in the dark letters. I have a memory of red segments but will have to check.

    Not really very helpful I'm afraid.

    Dont know vp, they clearly look black background with white letters. What else from Krupp eh?

    Now if it was Italain is would have white faces with red needles.

    Cant believe you get transfers for the dialsin 35th, in 72nd those dial are barley 2 millimeters accross.
