    Not a long restoration job this time, just a small piece of armour from the Flak 38 that I acquired a couple of months ago.

    This style of shield was used in conjunction with the Linealvisier 21 sight, see picture. There were a number of different shield styles depending on the sight used.

    You can see from one of the pictures that a mounting bracket weld broke while trying to get the pin out. Should be easy to weld even with my basic skills.

    I was offered the rest of the armour a couple of weeks ago, but with the shipping from Russia the price was too high. Also do not have the storage space for the rest.

    Have not spent a lot of time on this since the last up date.

    Have now welded the plate back in place and cleaned and primed part of the armour and the removable parts. De-rusting of the armour continues.

    Although we are on lock down here, I am still able to work in the garage, as I do not come into contact with anyone else. The Flak armour plate is now rust free and in a coat of red primer. With any luck within the next week it should get a coat of sand paint.

    As it was dry, sunny and warm today I got the 2cm Flak armour painted sand. It just needs a few split pins and it is complete. It has come out not to bad I think. On to the next project, which I have not decided on yet.

    Yes, it comes off with white spirit and a bit of elbow grease.
