SdKfz 223, SdKfz 261, SdKfz 222

Work is nearing completion on the 3 kg Sprengpatron Ladung boxes for the rear fenders of the Sd.Kfz.223 3.Serie, Sd.Kfz.261 5.Serie, Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie. The current focus is the hinges for these boxes. The 2cm Kwk Vorratstasche are now completed. These cases were empty – all of the clips, leatherwork and straps were removed since the war but no longer!

Our specialist automotive electrician is slowly working through the electrical system of the Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie to check each and every fitting. The front and rear Notek and brake lights are being wired at the same time. See the main image.

The correct and newly spun headlamps will be removed from their packaging soon and will be primed and painted prior to being fitted to the Sd.Kfz.222 4.Serie which has been waiting for them for some time now.

The components for the second Horch 3.5 litre V8 engine are now being addressed. Oil filler neck, con rods, fuel pump etc. The pistons will be ordered to suit the block once the bores have been bored and honed.

We are publishing many of our archive videos on to our YouTube channel. These will be soon be joined with up to date streams of what is being done here at the Foundation. Watch this space….
