Tasca M32 hull MG - part F1 to be used?

I am a bit confused about the mounting strip (part F1) surrounding the hull MG opening.

The instructions are a bit vague about this detail, should it be added or not?



The strip is certainly present on the Tasca boxart, but I must say it seems to interfer with the mounting bracket for the right leg of the mortar.
The pics in Concord's US Armored Funnies does not show this area clear enough.
It's definately there on the M32 but I see no clear evidence on the M32B1.

Thanks,
Anders

... instructing you to use it. It's on their website, and also deals with the main boom retaining cable length issue.

...but I must have used the wrong keywords as no clear images surfaced for me.
But those images are certainly clear.

Thanks again!

Anders,

I don't know if you've seen it, but I strongly recommend checking out Terry Ashley's review of the kit for helpful pointers. You can find it here:

Enjoy the build... and keep your sanity!

...sitting next to the kit while building.
(Many thanks to Terry for the time and effort he has put in his write-up.)

Only thing is I forget to look at it, but that is really a whole other problem.

Cheers,
Anders
