Sd.kfz 222 & 223 21/04/17

21 Apr 2017

Research

Progress on the interior of the 4 Serie Sdkfz 222 took a favourable turn.  Drawings for the Renault FT and TSF Turret Ring and axles have been sent out for quotation to our counterparts.  The drawings for the suspension components that require machining have been assembled and will be checked and amended as required in readiness for the quote process.  The castings for the suspension items are due to be completed at the end of April so timing is critical here.  Our search for information for the interior of our 5 Serie Sdkfz 223 is gathering momentum.  The research for the 3 and 5 Serie 223 and the 4 Serie 222 has to be in place before the end of the first quarter of next year in readiness for the kick off of these projects.  We are still debating whether The Weald Foundation armourer's Hotchkiss M1914 should be able to fire blanks.  There are no long nose 8X50 Label blanks available.  These will have to be specially made.
