Sd.Kfz. 222 Vignete research

Hi everybody,
Im preparing for a new project, a Sd.Kfz.222 in 1/35 vignete. Im not yet decided the timeline exactly but after some posts in another forum I came up with the following two options: 1) Sd.Kfz.222 with the #35044 SS recon crew set from Alpine Miniatures ( Oct 44 - Unit "Goetz v Berlichingen" -Normandy) and 2) the Sd.kfz.222 with th #35038 Winter panzer crew set from Alpine (Ardennes Offensive or Hungary Jan 45). Im interested to find which of these two figure sets are best suited as crew for the 222 at the given eras and after that maybe some details (if anybody knows) about the vehicle itself (Unit-Markings-Camo). I appreciate any help given, thanks in advance,

Regards, Anastasios.

Hi, Anastasios.

According to the Enciclopedia of German Tanks of WWII the Sd.Kfz.222 was used in all campaigns in all fronts from 1939 to the end of the war.
It was issued to the Panzerspahwagen squadrons of the Aufklarungs batallions to protect the armored cars with long range radios.

So both sets of figures are good to represent the crew.
