Hello everyone, After wrestling with my Dragon Tiger build, I wanted to build something simple. I picked Tamiya Sd.Kfz. 222, that was on the shelf for too long. I wanted to build a vehicle from the start of Rommel's actions, early 1941, when these vehicles were still in their original RAL 7021. The vehicle belonged to 3rd Recon Battalion, 21st Panzer Division (at this time 5th Light Division). It should be a mid-production version (series 3 or 4). I did few minor modifications to the kit, because Tamiya kit represents later series 5 vehicle and added few AM parts: metal barrels, tool clamps and stowage. Also, replaced decals with Archer's version, because I don't like how Tamiya thick decals look on the dark background. Kit is super simple, and builds like a charm. Typical Tamiya kit. Details are meh, especially barrel, which is metal, but almost no details at all. Also, some things are oversimplified, like antenna base, jack, no tail light at all, etc. I plundered few other kits for spare parts. Also, added some generic Aber PE parts, like tool clamps. Model is painted with MRP RAL 7021 and weathered with MIG's pigments. Overall, a relaxing build, just as I wanted. Thanks for watching and thanks for feedback. Cheers and Marry Christmas, Nenad
