More done today - fitted the wheels and the steering linkages, then finished off the driver's controls - still need to add the control panel for the second driver.

Interesting to watch this build as I have built a couple of the old Tamiya Sd.Kfz.232 kits with the "roof rack" antennae, I have always been tempted to get one of these newer AFV club kits, perhaps at the right price.  BTW  how do you manage to find anything in your modelling space?

Got the top on today and the fit has been to coin a phrase 'horrible'. Obvious that this is a variant off an original kit

Nice.

I have wanted to get one of these for a long time.

Perhaps when the time (and price) is right.

It is a pity that AFV Club have omitted the Notek rear Light installation in this kit although it is there on part CC14. The lamp should be attached to part D19 in step 36 of the instructions but funnily enough they have placed the un-numbered part in steps 41, 42 and 43. The dreaded cut and paste errors occur here as well.
