The Gurtkasten MG belt containers together with their vehicle frame mounts were assembled this week. There are 4 of these per unit and two complete units have been assembled ready to be fitted to the inside of the Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie. Research has continued into the radio frame and fittings required for the Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie. This research is now ready to be published soon in the New Year. The dashboard/instrument panel for the Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie and Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie are being plotted carefully. The Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie example is ready to be made after Christmas.
The various radio straps are being gathered. We have assembled an original late strap example using original components. Research is progressing with the other radio strap Halterriemen combinations for our Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie, the Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie and the Sd.Kfz.261 5.Serie. This research has been ongoing for over 2 years now and some serious breakthroughs have been achieved over this period.
The air filter cartridges have now been completed (see image). These have been purposely made for the Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie and the Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie armoured cars. The air filter is specific to the Ausf.A 2 piece body armoured car.
Have a lovely Christmas everyone!!
