This week has seen countless small tasks completed. The small axe fitting on the interior front right, the front headlamps, fire extinguisher bracket fitted internally, large visor block housing straightened up prior to blasting (currently original Dunkelgelb tan finish). The Leiste metal strips are being fitted to the 2cm KwK 38 and MG34 ports. A comprehensive photo recording of this will be made and posted in Inside Track our online journal.
The radio straps have been recovered from storage and are now being sorted to establish which complete sets are for which project, separate components – buckles, strap lugs and the well known Fua1 links are now laid out in readiness for a tally of what is needed for the Sd.Kfz.222, Sd.Kfz 223 and Sd.Kfz.261 armoured cars.
Key components of the Einheitsdiesel truck project – the side sections of the rear body housing the tailgate arrived. Other items for this project are continuing to be secured including one of the rear doors making up the tailgate. Additional Pak 43 wheels are also in the bag and will require collection.
