I doubt I have anything in that detail. It was a fairly rare vehicle. Why that one?
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 :cool:. Good luck with your project!

Regards,
Matt

Got my first answer back from Sinsheim. No joy. BUT! They did give me a list of 11 places to try. So the ones with an email, will all get a mail soon. The ones in Germany, with just a phone number, will get a call. The places out side Germany, will get a letter. Lets just see what we can dig up!! The one place in Frog land, (France) will get a letter translated by my good frog friend Gilbert. This is better then a treasure hunt!

To the OP. I wonder if you'd have better luck posting your question over on the HMVF? If not, at least you might make contact with the owners of the few 247 replicas that are running around the show circuit in Europe/UK. Just a thought.
