Good news this week on the first of the two cross members that were to be made for the Sd.Kfz 261 5.Serie. The first is the front cross member is now in the hands of our team fitting tabs and panels to allow for the gear change mechanism including the gear shaft. See main image of the related components
Our long awaited wood CNC router is with is. The desk is being set up for this device to operate on. It will move into action next week.
Our first matched paint production resulting from the scientific analysis done by Lincoln Conservation for Dunkelgrau paint applied all those years ago prior to mid 1943. The rims on the Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie have now been given a final top coat of this historic paint. We will be covering this and providing online imagery of this colour compared to the Dunkelgrau used today. A very different result!
The various fittings for the plate visor of the Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie are currently being refurbished and made to be refitted to the rather more resilient visor plates themselves.
