Product Description

1/600 Scale 20mm/65 (0.79") C/38 AA MG (Vierling) x10 suitable for all Airfix Kriegsmarine vessels where this weapon was used. Highly detailed parts designed specifically for 1/600 scale models.

Not to be confused with the Oerlikon 20 mm gun used by the Allies, these German 2 cm weapons were manufactured by Rheinmetall. The Rheinmetall design was developed from an earlier Solothurn weapon, the ST-5. Both the C/30 and the C/38 guns were fully automatic.

The C/30 model was prone to jamming and used a small magazine (20 rounds) which meant frequent pauses for reloading. The later C/38 was a much improved weapon which used a 40 round magazine. A very successful variation of this weapon was the Flak 35, which combined four C/38 guns in a single quad mounting. A three-dimensional stabilized naval-mount was introduced in 1944.

The C/38 was also produced in very sophisticated twin mount for U-boats. These were able to withstand a 550 foot (200 m) diving depth.

Some part cleanup will be necessary. The 3D printing process uses a waxy substance to support certain part features during the printing process.  Although the parts are cleaned by Shapeways, some waxy residue may remain.  It can be safely removed with water and a mild aqueous detergent like "Simple Green" using an old, soft toothbrush, Q-tips or pipe cleaners.  Customers report that "Bestine" and "Goo Gone" also work well.During the printing process, liquid resin is cured by ultraviolet light.  Microscopic bits of resin may remain uncured.  
Let your parts sit in direct sunlight for a few hours to fully cure the resin.  
Water-based acrylic paints meant for plastics is strongly recommended.  
Other paints, especially enamels, may not cure on Frosted Detail 3D-printed plastics.
Use dedicated model sprue cutters to remove parts to minimise damage to parts.
