Sd.kfz 222 – part 3

Time to get some paint on.

I’ll check so I haven’t missed any spots. If not, then it’s time for decals.

I also need to get the covers done and the commander painted.

I added parts to the fenders and prepared a few other parts.

Some time later almost all parts was glued in place.

Soon time to get some paint on and also assemble the commander and paint him.

I bought this kit in one of those nostalgic impulses I get when I see kits that I’ve built when I was young. As I’m participating in a WW2 group build and my Mustang just had got some putty on that needed to dry before I can sand it properly, I decided to have a go at this kit.

This is an older kit without PE that comes with the newer ones.

The build starts with the lower hull, and it didn’t take long before I had to use putty on this one as well.

So I just had to let that dry for a while.
Once dry I could continue the build. I mounted the frame and drive line parts, and prepared the wheels for assembly.

Then a while later the wheels was assembled.

I then started gluing parts to the upper hull and preparing parts to the gun.

Then the gun parts got some paint as I need the gun to be painted before proceeding.

Next will be assembly of the gun and getting it in place so the hull parts can be glued together.
