German WW2 SDKFZ222 armoured car replica

Listing #: 462431455
German full scale armoured car replica project. Once finished could be used for re-enactments,for fun offroad activities, also onroad as should be able to be registered under the LVVC as the chassis work has been professionally done.

I have got this far with the project but have no time and to many other projects to complete first . So it needs to go to someone who can make use of it.

The chassis has been lengthened to the correct wheelbase by using two Landrover Discovery front chassis halfs. By modifying the diffs the engine goes in the rear and everything works the correct way(see the green chassis pic as an example). An auto must be used otherwise there wont be clearance for a rotating turret.

The dummy top body frame is mostly complete, this then gets the 10mm MDF covering, once it all fits that gets changed to a monocoque steel plate structure in 8mm and 5mm steel, weights etc already calculated @ 2305 lbs for the steel. There is no dummy turret frame at this stage. One could keep it MDF if desired but it would need a protective coating as MDF cannot tolerate moisture.

You also get to own the website www.achtung222.com, I have already had a few sales queries through this site.

There a genuine 20mm shell casing. See also this sale for a Mag:

Currently in storage in Seaview, I would need two days notice to arrange a viewing as its not my facility.

There are two sets of different springs and shocks and a set of Disco mags/tires.

The books/manuals have a wealth of reference material.I have created a colour chart for the Camo, with Tamiya colours.

I will supply a USB stick with 1000’s of photos, measurements, calculations etc.

I will also supply documentation on what to do to the diffs to get it all working correctly.

More than $10k so far, someone will get a bargain and the good basis for a great finished vehicle at the asking price.

Feel free to ask any questions.
