Nice model,

Do you know why it carries three aiming posts rods? I can see from other drawings that it does, but do you, or anyone else know, how the aiming posts were used? British practice was to use two in line. What was the third for?

No I don't know why there's 3. I've always wondered that myself

Possibly because the designer had no clue as to how aiming posts work..........



Nice job on the model :thumbsup: My favorite scale.



Cheers

Thank you,

Larry, 1/72 is pretty much only scale I build. I'm slowly getting back into WWII.

Cheers
