This set has been revised and now includes the launch rails.
These are upgraded launchers for Leopard 2A4/2A6.
It improves on the quality of the parts in the Revell kit and can also be used on the Meng and Tamiya kits.
The chains are much finer than the ones you find on most general vehicle etch sets.
Also, some kit launchers are a little on the skinny side, particularly Meng.
16 Smoke launchers and 2 launch rails
Etch fret with 16 fine chains
Snip off the launchers from the pour block and clean up.
Carefully glue them to the launch rails, taking careful note of the angles.
On the top row, 1 and 2 face forwards, 3 and 4 are angled out slightly, 5 and 6 are even more angled.
On the bottom row, both are angled out still further.
See the photos below.
The chains have a circular link at one end and a tab plus circular link at the other.
Choose the circular link and carefully glue this over the nipple on the launcher cap.
Repeat four times per side and allow to dry thoroughly.
With tweezers or a scalpel blade, bend the chain backwards to meet the body of the launcher under the
body and just behind the dust cap.
