Ron Garcia Bought this on sale a long time ago. Never intended to build the loading crew. Added the autoloader with some shells because I thought it looked good. I left the panel covering it free so I could remove it if I ever wanted to look at it again. Can't see much, though, as the panel is barely the width of a shell and there are four on the autoloader. Nice kit. Easy build.

rick weller no poly caps go in the idler wheels and then you end up with 2 extras right? and its also the only 2 wheels where it doesn't say to not glue them. also got 2 longer poly caps that go to nothing I guess?

Ron Garcia Not sure what you're asking. There shouldn't be any extra idler wheels. As far as I know, you never use poly caps on any 1/35 Tamiya AFV idler wheels. Sometimes you use the longer poly caps to attach the upper and lower halves of the hull. I think Tamiya just uses one mold for them and then reuses them for most of their AFV kits. That means sometimes you end up with extra.

rick weller ok good cuz only used 14 poly caps for the 7 road and drive wheels and the instructions didn't show using them for the idler wheels,just glued them up solid.and I didn't see where the long poly caps are used but attaching the hull may be correct but I'm not there yet lol
