So it looks like they updated the instructions and now you have the J spruce in the box, however they do not include instructions, on how to put the the Tusk on it. Is their anyway to install the tusk armor on?

I'm just reading this thread now.

I have to say, it seems flat out common now for these Chinese manufacturers to sell kits that have pretty substantial instruction mistakes! And they aren't just a typo or reversed number...they are massively under-worked and need substantial fixing in some instances.

I am building the Border Models Leopard 2 A5/A6 right now and their instructions are terrible.

I thought Dragon's were bad...

Come on Chinese manufacturers: get the instructions right, please!
