German Armoured Cars

I used to have 3 different German Armoured Cars; the two in this post and an SdKfz 232 Heavy Armoured Car. I got rid of the SdKfz 232 a number of years ago and I would like to build Tamiya's re-tooled version that they released recently. The two that I still have are the SdKfz 222 Light Armoured Car, and the SdKfz 259 Half-Tracked Armoured Car. The latter is my favourite of these two as it has a fully detailed interior, including the engine bay. I really enjoyed building and painting the interior of this one and decided not to glue the top of the hull and engine access in place, so that the interior could be seen. Both of these models have mesh anti grenade screens on top of their turrets and cutting out the mesh for these was quite fiddly. The end results were worth the hard work though!
