The gearbox for the 4 Serie Sd.Kfz.223 is nearing completion. Focus for now is on the oil pump on the exterior of the case. While this work is continuing we have completed the rubber lubrication lines on each of the wheel stations. We are still awaiting the drive couplings for the front 2 wheel stations and tyres for the chassis. When these are with us we will be able to complete the chassis ex the engine.
Th rubber lubrication lines are being fitted to the 3 Series Sd.Kfz.223 wheel stations.
The next phase of work is the continued reassembly of the 4 Serie Sd.Kfz.222 hull. The panels have been cleaned and prepared for this process which will start next week.
The parallel investigation into the interior of the 4 Serie Sd.Kfz.222 is continuing. Findings are being published in our weekly magazine Inside Track. The interior is being mapped out for this 4 Serie in readiness for the fitting out of the armoured car hull.
