The project drawing the fenders for the 4 Serie Sd.Kfz.222 and the 3 Serie Sd.Kfz.223. Detailing the differences and creating the CAD drawings for each item for each vehicle. We discovered a fender section yesterday for our 4 Serie Sd.Kfz.222 which incorporates the fire extinguisher holder. This is the one we have come across to date and will be covered extensively in our online magazine Inside Track. The fire extinguisher holder for the Sd.Kfz.223 3 Serie and Sd.Kfz.222 4 Serie fender has been discovered within our stores and has also been dimensioned and drawn.
The armoured body for the Sd.Kfz.222 4 Series continues to be reassembled. This week’s focus was the repair and fitting of the original cast visors and their mechanisms (see attached image). The hull is being rotated to allow the welded of the individual panels to be done correctly. The doors have been fitted to both sides. The original ironmongery – handles, latches, shafts and eyes will be fitted once the doors are removed once more.
Major collection moves this week as we gather more for the PaK 43 project, Jagdpanther panels and smaller fittings for the Sd.Kfz.222, Sd.Kfz 223 and Sd.Kfz.250. These will also be covered within our online magazine Inside Track. Very rare items for the Sd.Kfz.261 5 Serie have also been secured.
