Flakpanzer III “Ostwind”
3,7cm Flak 43

Unassembled plastic model kit in 1/72 scale of a German WWII self-propelled anti-aircraft project Flakpanzer III “Ostwind”, developed in the very late months of the war.

The “Ostwind” turret was an original develop for the Panzer IV chassis, an open turret with 3.7cm FlaK 43 AA gun. In the late 1944 trials with such turret and also the “Wirbelwind” (quad flak on similar design) turret were ran on Panzer III chassis, and was concluded that the “Ostwind” (lighter with only one gun) was suitable for the Panzer III chassis.

100 conversions were ordered but delays on the turrets deliver and shortages in the late war made it impossible. There are records of 18 turrets completed by late March 1945 and order to deliver and convert those 18 turrets but there is no records of service for any of the vehicles although there are records of some of them being completed and ready for the last two months of the war.

This kit combines a Panzer III chassis by Revell with a MACOOstwind” turret and FlaK into an excellent quality kit, sadly out of production and really hard to find.

In 2019, Revell, who acquired most if not all the MACO moulds when MACO ceased activity, reissued this kit as Revell – 03286 – Flakpanzer III “Ostwind” (3,7 cm Flak 43). The Marketplace section for this kit is closed, the Revell – 03286 – Flakpanzer III “Ostwind” (3,7 cm Flak 43) page will expose both results if available.
