Painting and colour selection from our exact NCS paint references from analysis of most items is under way. The Renault FT and Renault TSF bogey wheels, internal suspension hangers, sandwich plates holding the bogey wheels together all painted and being assembled to the leaf springs. These will be fitted inside the suspension beams longerons next week. Original track link lengths are being disassembled and links repaired in readiness for machining. The newly cast track links are being machined at the moment and these originals will undergo the same treatment once delivered. Small adjustments are being made along the way within the fitting process to ensure all mechanical items move freely.
The sleuth work on the interior plaques for the Sd.Kfz 222 and 223 continues. The artwork is now complete for the Ausf A and B Schmierplan (Lubrication chart). The next phase for the Dueseneinstellen (setting the jets) is taking shape with most details now in hand.
