sd kfz 222

Post by afrika.90light » Wed Apr 23, 2008 3:07 pm

Hallo
I'm looking for info on the 222. The turret is my main concern. I'm modeling one in 15mm for Flames of War. I tried search and it said there was no info in this forum on the 222 which I find a little bit odd, as the first page of the forum list had one such article. Not what I needed though. I believe the top opened vertically. Was there a bar to hold them open or what. What color should I paint the inside of the turret? And would the inside top be yellow like the outside or painted like the inside? How about the guns? This may all sound silly but I'm trying to be as realistic as possible for this scale. This is for a plt. of the 4 A.A. of 4 panzer Div.
I assume the crew would be in german grey. Would the shoulder boards be pink for panzer?
If there is info somewhere on the forum, directions to it would be great (or other web sites for that matter). Pictures would be even better. And would I dare hope for color :wink: .
Thanks in advance. Happy Trails.

William

By "top" do you mean the wire debris covers?
