Those of you that, like myself, intend to build a Flak Tower using CGD's Flak 40, dont have to look for plans and try to scratchbuild an accurate reproduction of the massive ammunition lifts that were found on the roofs!

Dear Sirs,

Thank you for the words of encouragement.
The drawing of the tower is almost finished and some corrections had to be made to the lifts in order to make them printable: the handles were taken off and will now have to be remade from copper wire.

Looking forwards to seeing this.
There is a whole section of the video game 'Sniper Elite - V2' set in and up on the roof of this flak tower. They appear to have used this photo as the basis for their whole model.
