88 flak

Post by Jeffrey Goff » Mon Aug 27, 2007 6:21 pm

Hi, as there are no posts on this yet, and it will be a couple of months before I can start adding detail, I am posting some pictures of a full size 88mm flak 18 shell, with its markings, and pictured next to the Armortek blank firing shell, found this at the Military Odyssey this weekend.

regards Jeff

Well, I must admit, I have been lazy since I got the 8.8 too. I need to get off of my duff and start on it. This winter is looking better for it though.

Hello Yves

Just taking a break from the festivities. The barrel parts have to be deburred very well as the threads are fine.I put a bit of grease around them to ease them in. Do not force it as the theads will be damaged. Hope this helps.
