Prototype: After the surrender of the Dutch armed forces on May 15, 1940, the Wehrmacht took a number of Dutch Landsverk L-181/L-180 armored cars into service; they were quickly painted field gray, given Balkenkreuz markings, and designated the Panzerspähwagen L 202. Eight Dutch armored cars were immediately incorporated into the German 227th Infantry Division and fought with it until the end of the campaign in the West in the summer of 1940. These armored cars were then assigned to coastal defense duties in France. PLEASE NOTE: These models are all handmade and painted which makes every one unique. This means the paint patterns may vary a little and the detail parts like sandbags, turret tracks, antennas, etc. may also be arranged differently. This was also the case in real life. These models are very prototypical.
