Just did a quick google search and found a breakdown of parts for the rapier on Henk's site here:http://henk.fox3000.com/gran.htm . Just scroll down to the Rapier.

Hi Graham,
The kit builds in battle or transport configuration.
The result is this (not mine, found in the Internet):











Cheers!

With a couple of rock apes scratching their heads trying to fix it, because Commodore Clapp stopped the RAF bringing their techies and servicing & calibration equipment....

Just like the problems at Wideawake where the rn Captain in charge there, kept turning back RAF movers, ops & A/C techies, and then wondered why it took twice as long to turn round the movements, and kept shouting about the A/C unservicability.

...I mean, who thought of putting a GD rn captain in charge of an airfield- If he'd been a FAA officer it might have worked, but as it was, it turned into a mess.

And the F..k ups in coordinating the right resources to the spot are also always the same, no matter what nationality the army or services are...
enjoy modelling......

The more I've dug into the Falklands War, the more I realise the UK won despite the royal navy, and its senior officer's desperate attempts to battle the other two services.

Would have come with a firing post, an essential item for its use, and a generator while we're at it.

I want them! Too bad they don't come with a generator and command vehicle. I have an old White Metal kit somewhere with all that; Ill have to see if I have all the parts for it still so I can add them to this whenever I get it.

We are modelers - the same in spirit, in hunger to insanely buy newly released kits, hustlers in hiding our stash from our better halves and experts in using garbage as replacements for after-market parts.
