Although this type of vehicles are one of my favourites Altaya’s model is not a very good ones, it haves a lot of ugly painted details, as commented in other models, like a letter.
232 series were superseded by 234 series, but never were withdrawn from the front, probably by the lack of resources. They were update after 1943 with new radios and also a compact antenna. A curiosity, the antenna showed in the model was specially attached to the turret, so this was able to rotate 360º.
