#43 and 44 are indeed a winch that’s used to raise and lower the launching platform separately from the missile cradle. (As far as I can tell, most often after firing when the cradle has already been lowered and the vehicle is getting ready to move out. Also used when servicing and doing maintenance and the launching platform needs to be moved out of the way of the engine deck.)
@Nito74: I actually have my own build going on here, too! I don’t want to clutter up Oldwarloke’s thread with any more about it, but here’s a link -
Trumpy 2P19 Launcher with R17 Missile
This should finish this build.
Tomorrow the finish Pics.
Here are the finished Pics.
Well that finishes this build , I hope it helps those of you building this kit.
Very sharp build! A+++
Got to love the Suicide Doors on the Scud launcher.
Hell, that’s a lot nicer than my old Roco 1/87 one.
I am in the process of finishing mine, and will refer to your images to see how to tackle the tricky bits. I did go with a slightly darker shade of green on the Scud, just for contrast. Nice job!
