Need photos of Panzer IV F-1 Vorpanzer

I've started the Cyberhobby kit and intend to build it more or less out of the box in order to get to the painting and weathering stage as soon as possible. My only difficulty is that the painting guide in the kit shows only one painting option, and that is for an unidentified unit. I would much prefer to model a specific vehicle from a known unit but I can't find any suitable photos. I would appreciate any help I can get. Many thanks.

One I recommend is Fotos from the Panzertruppen - The Early Years:

apparently that book shows the D and E Vorpanzer but not the F-1 that I'm building. Any other recommendations, or am I missing something here?

Hope this helps -as far as I know this is the only photo of an F with VorPz fitted.

That is indeed a photo of the vehicle in the kit's painting guide, so I guess it's either that or leave off the additional Vorpanzer armor and depict a plain F-1 if I want to depict a tank from an identified unit. Thanks again.

Does the kit include the "Hansi" hull front marking?
It is in the Ausf E VorPz kit but I'm not going to use it, so you can have it if you want it.

but the kit does include the "Hansi" decal so I won't be needing yours.

If Hansi it´s a Pz IV F1 then you can´t build it with the Dragon´s Pz IV E Vorpanzer.
Am I right?
