First to Fight, I'm sorry I ever doubted you. Here is a photo of 221 in Poland in 1939. It has the same front vision ports as those represented in the kit.

theres always the tyres to go detail on, these basically are improvable on any kit.......

For more info on the 221 and other vehicles saa the book "German Light Reconnaissance Vehicles" by Horst Scheibert. I would like to add that a few Sdkfz 221s were fitted with 28mm PAKs the 24 PD had at least one according to my notes most likely from the book "Death of a leaping Horseman" I hope this is of some help.
