We had a visit from the editor of Classic Military Vehicles and deputy editor of Britain at War this week and a number of photo ops and interviews were taken.
The Sd.Kfz 261 chassis repair work is arduous and time consuming. The extent of corrosion on the front of the chassis is quite remarkable and is slowly being cut out and replaced with new material but with an emphasis on retaining as much of the original chassis steel and fittings as possible.
