Sd Kfz 222 Scratch Built

Post by Germanbilly! on Wed Aug 06, 2014 6:48 pm

Sd Kfz 222 built from a flat armor lazer cut kit? I'm quite sure that is who made this. It was fun to build and put the suspension in it. It had 4 wheel steering and the Wheels came from panzerwerk, Steve. It is assigned to a new unit now. Had it a long time .

Charlie that is the one I sold you right after the build was complete. It was weathered a lot more when you got it.

Dave that was a plastic kit that I added the under carrage to. I think I was the first to do that. Got tired of seeing two steal rods with wheels on them lol.

Really great looking build.
Wish I could've purchased one of your vehicles
It was fascinating to see what Bill did in the beginning, with the damage. Quite sure it's going to look like"new money".

Billy made a beautiful armored car rarely seen today. I was lucky to have it for awhile. Unfortunately, as is the case with 1/6 items, the shipping gorillas more often than not, went to great efforts considering Billy's great packing to damage what they could. This unit has now been transferred to a repair unit who can restore the damages with the quality work that is beyond my humble (forehead glued to the table kind of stuff) abilities. I bought 3 of Billy's sale vehicles, 2 arrived perfect. I guess 2 out of 3 isn't bad.

The craftsman that now owns it, takes his time but when finished, I'm sure he will post pics of the 222.
