Hi Everyone.

I am working on the Meng T-72B1, kit number TS-033 and having issues with the two front headlights. Does anyone have the same issues ? It simply won't fit with the armor protection is installed. The feet of the headlight protection cage are not long enough to reach the installation hole. Any work around ? Thank you.

Here is the manual from Hobby Search webpage, scroll down to step 19 and 20.

Hi
I had the same issue, so I had to strech some sprue and add it. Simple fix, no worries.

Great. Thank you for the reply to confirm the issue. I am afraid I did something wrong.
