Sd. Kfz. 222

To say it with Fran's words: The painting-bug has bitten again :)
This time, his theeth hit cold steel - one of my favorite WWII vehicles, the Sd. Kfz. 222:

Friedrich has had a long ride. Time to sit back.

Being ever-vigilant Friedrich has his Schmeisser MP and a potato-masher at the ready...

The Sd. Kfz. 222 Kit was made by ICM. Overall it was a nice and easy build, with amost no flash and good fitting. It features a small photo-etched fret for the the rear top (under the turret) and the anti-grenade mesh on the turret. This mesh is the only real downside I found on this kit, because its a wee bit to wide (this is why I pushed it down that far).

The vehicle accesoires were crafted by SHQ. I especially like the bucket. I could not help but fix it right to the front of the car...

The two Jerry-Cans were from Herpa-Minitanks, the former Rocco Minitanks. They're 1/87, but they fit pretty good.

Friedrich's last name is "Preiser". He is a part of Preisers "Aufgesessene Panzergrenadiere". Dispite the fact of wearing the wrong tunic for a tank-man, I like him pretty muh on that vehicle. Sitting around and wait for something to happen seems to be a proper job for a scout ;)

I hope you like this one!

One last question:
Was the last post with pictures from the original Siegfried-Line really that uninteresting?
