Very neat design of the blank shells, is that Armortek design? I remember somewhere seeing blank shells available for PAK43 long ago.

Great looking model! Interesting and informative video!
Best regards,
Bob

VERY impressive engineering and well-executed!

This is going in the memory banks for one of my PAK's. And being that I am in the USA... there is a possibility to make something fire live! This is a brilliant way to do it.

Cheers and thanks for posting some great ideas!

Thanks for the kind comments guys.

Just to clarify, yes the shells are (were) Armortek produced. These particular ones are the 88mm Blank Firer for Flak 36 and PAK 43/41.
Release 2 from 2015.

Yes, it is pretty cool, Yves. Especially on the 88mm that doesn't have much functionality as it is, so the blank firing does add a a bit more fun-factor to it!

Hi Scott:

Great informative video. Where can I get these shells for my pak? Is Armortek still producing them?

Thanks
