As these appear early days protoype sprues, it is not clear how much assembly you will need to do.
It can be seen in the photos that as per the description that these are indeed prepainted.
Although the photos on Hobby Search show the same weapons sprues, the text would seem indicate that the waepons packs should be as per the original kits.

The Sd. Kfz. 247 Ausf. A was a six-wheeled armoured car build by Krupp using the 6 X 4 chassis of Krupp Protze truck. Thinly armoured and open-topped, it was used as a command car for motorcycle divisions. Strangely they were not fitted with radios. It's cross-country capability was only as good as the Protze. Only 10 Sd. Kfz. 247 Ausf. A where built before the war started, and were superseded by the 4-wheeled Ausf. B version built by Daimler-Benz.

German Armored Car Polizei-Panzerkampfwagen ADGZ
ADGZ was designed by Austro-Daimler Puchwerke AG, which in 1934 was taken over by Steyr. Production began in 1934 and continued until late 1937, while first ADGZ cars began entering service with Bundesheer in 1935. The original cars were pressed into service with Police detachments and SS units (e.g. SS Danziger Heimwehr) including those storming the Post Office in Danzig (Gdansk) in September of 1939. In 1941, Reichsführer SS Heinrich Himmler ordered Steyr to produce additional 25 ADGZ armored cars for the use by SS. They were delivered in 1942 and entered service with SS units in the East and the Balkans (e.g. 7th SS Freiwillingen-Gebirgs-Division "Prinz Eugen") fighting the partisans.
more information regarding this curious vehicle, can be found here:

A high speed photo reconnaissance drone developed in the early 1960s, originally intended to be launched from the M-21 which was a converted A-12 (a SR-71 kit will have to make do!), it was later configered to work from the B-52 (which carried one under each wing on pylons). The programme was cancelled after a small number of flights over China!
This resing kit allows you to build one of two options!

The Krupp-Protze L2H143 kfz61 was a widely used 6 wheeled truck and artillery tractor in WWII. Most commonly for towing the Pak 36. In various configurations, about 7000 units were built.
Frequently instead of towing the Pak 36, crews put the whole Pak unit on top of the truck turning the vehicle into a self-propelled gun, or as in this model, permanently mounted on the vehicle without the carriage.
