Hi Brano;

Why are the two front visors the same size????
Shouldn't the left front visor be the larger size?

Are they not just the early style? Tamiyas 1/35 222 and 223 have different visors.

Brano, don't forget the handles for the jerrycans on the rear fenders.

...yes, they were alike on the initial prototype, and some following in the early production batch. However, I have never seen a photo of a 222 in a combat theatre of operations that did not have the small visor to the right of the driver. This is true of even the early version without the raised driver's roof.
