    I doubt I have anything in that detail. It was a fairly rare vehicle. Why that one?

    Any dimensions whatsoever would be helpful to me. I haven't even found a wheel base yet.

    Thanks!

    I've seen a couple of those (replicas) running around. It's one of the easier vehicles to replicate as it has a conventional drive train layout (motor & tranny up front-not rear mounted like in most armored cars) and is/was made from flat plates, no concave curves to replicate.

    I knew a guy in Ohio who back in the 1980's built a full size sdkfz222 armored car. He got his dimensions for the build from a 1/35th scale model. That may be an avenue for you. Always like the 247A six wheeler myself . Good luck with your project!

    Regards,
