.: Peter McKinnon's Dragon 1/35th 20mm Flak Panzer & Trailer

Even at the outbreak of the Second World War, the German Pz.Kpfw. I was seriously outdated and outclassed. However, when an order was issued in 1941 for the production of a tracked anti-aircraft vehicle with armor protection, some of the small and elderly Panzer I chassis at last found a new outlet.

A 2cm Flak 38 anti-aircraft gun was duly mounted on a Pz.Kpfw. I Ausf.A hull, and the result was the Flakpanzer I. A total of 24 of these conversions were manufactured, and allocated to Fla.Bataillon 614 (mot.), a unit raised in 1941.
