ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" NVA Dragon 1/35

One of my favorite A/A systems is "Shilka"; A "made in" C.C.C.P. weapon which is perchaps the most common low altitude A/A gun in the ex Warsaw Pact countries.
Dragon in the mid of  '80s has produced a lot of soviet weapons in 1/35 one of them was "Shilka".
 It's a nice kit made in soft grey plastic with nice details (for an '80's kit). Of course there are some after market accessories from Eduard (p.e.) Friul (tracks) and RB/JB Model (gun barrels) for it.
 So I decided to make an NVA version during the end of Vietnam war.
