Hi everyone


After years of modelling, this is the first set I build and my question is: Why they separate the link in two different bags?..I thougt they were for left and right links but, after close examination I see that the links in the bags are identical..they all have the "hole for the wire" on the same side..Did i got two right track bags? or Should I quit inhaling Laquer Thinner (the Tamiya one) and stop making this questions?

Thank you all!

Not a dumb question at all. Some tracks are really different (panzer ostketten for example) so it's a way not to mix right and left links.
In your case, having two bags should help you storing the links during the preparation process.
