Hi all,
I've recently purchased the Dragon kit for the M4A3 HVSS POA-CWS-H5 Sherman flamethrower as used in the Korean war. (kit 6807)
On the box art there is some sort of piping and a flexible hose on the left side of the tank, wich i presume is for refueling the extra flamethrower tank. These parts are NOT included in the kit, nor are they mentioned on the instruction sheet.
My question: was this on the left side only, and is there an updat kit wich contains these items.
Furthermore, how accurate is this Sherman kit?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Best regards
Pete
