We present new 6 and 3-cm radio-continuum maps of the Small Magellanic Cloud
(SMC), created with the "peeling" technique and a joint deconvolution. The
maps have resolutions of 3000 and 2000 and r.m.s., noise of 0.7 and 0.8
mJy/beam at 6 and 3 cm, respectively. These maps will be used for future
studies of the SMC's radio source population and overall extended structure.
