Work on the Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie continues with a start made to the small stowage bins mounted to both rear fenders. Additional internal stowage for the 3kg Ladung cord are well on their way to completion. Original external stowage bins are also in focus where new material is being grafted on to existing corroded objects in which the bad sections are being removed and replaced with new material. This is painstaking work but the end result will be as original as possible.
Drawings for the bins mentioned above have been completed in readiness for the fabrication of the new items required. Drawings are also underway for the windscreen inserts for the armoured visors of the Sd.Kfz.223. The first prototype will be prepared next week for testing.
The large bin for the Sd.Kfz.223 situated just behind the radio operator is being drawn using an original example within the collection. This bin will need a huge amount of attention as it is also not in the best condition.
