Same one for me, 40L70 from 45th battalion anti-aircraft artillery Dutch Army.

Hi Brian,
That´s great news! Finally I can build my 40mm/L70 ammo box in 1/35 scale.




Does anyone make spare 40mm clips?

Yes - Dolp Modellbau:

After checking the videos, I find this kit a little inconvincing. It seems a little bit “rough” and the shape of the muzzle brake is wrong.

AFV Club makes some as well

and so does Orange Hobby :

Both sets are for the earlier L/60 Bofors though, just like the Dolp one. The 1:1 L/70 rounds are about 5 cm longer… So it’s up to you :wink:
