Hi Phil,
The FAMO looks good.
I reckon two 12V batteries were laid on the cargo area. Is there any photo of them?

With regards,
Lerh Chang :D

Hello Chang,

Hi Phil,
Thanks for the reply.
Not sure if I misunderstood your meaning. How are two of 12V batteries able to be squeezed into the other storage box? :?:

I had some time to build a little more details on my FAMO.
so I made the frame for the drivers seat, and while having a good friend is saddler, I've got some thin leather in the right color for the poetry between the fire panel and hood...

At my first roll out I noticed some problems with the track. The same I had with my SdKfz 251. So I have to modify my track a bit.

A little work on the fenders. I milled the alu at the middle section so it looks some more scale. The weight I lost at this position I'll put later into the engine dummy. You need the weight because the steering function on slippy bottom.

Some work on the loading area and fenders.
The fenders instalation is quite difficult, because a long part with some fasteners to fix. - So if one part does'nt haf the rigt position in a bit of a mm, you can't get it fixed.
Now my loading area and fenders come together on the famo and looks amazing. :D
