The Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie turret Schutzschild received the lion share of attention this week. There will be a few more days required next week to complete all of the detailed work required to result before a complete 4.Serie Schutzschild emerges. Details now such as the radio rack, turret seat, handles etc are all in focus. Note lead image of Schutzschild upside down.
The firewall for the armoured car continues to progress. The original left and right hand side firewall sections are being sized up for the work that is needed on them. Hinges on both and the right hand side really needs quite a lot of work after blasting.
The grenade mesh for the turret top and firewall / radiator mesh are in progress. The correct hinges are also on order for the bins and firewall observation panels.
The headlamps required for the armoured car are now with us. These will be fully restored and other exact copies will be faithfully produced for the range of le.Pz.Sp.Wg. we are working on. The history behind these lamps is included in this week’s Inside Track.
Have a good weekend.
