Rapier

September 10 2017, 11:44 AM 

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):

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.

Goes to prove wars are never won by equipment.

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.

beck & call of the Navy!? I heard an expression uttered once that if I had a mouthful of liquid it would have come out with the intensity of a plasma cutter!!
"The (insert navy of your choice), X years of history unimpeded by progress!!"
Apologies to any navy hands but I thought it was funny!

These are cool!

September 11 2017, 2:35 PM 

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.

Thought the rapier

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

September 13 2017, 6:58 AM 

Yes but no but yes but! Really I was only on about the optical firing post, but the rest would be nice aswell, blind fire,generators, reloads, etc etc, CMSC did a nice basic version of the rapier, including generators and reloads, goes well with the JB 1 tonne landrover.

Isn't this thread about Rapier?

September 16 2017, 2:43 AM 

It annoys me, a little bit, when someone hijacks a thread.

To be fair.

The initial post was about both the MRAPs and the Rapier, just that more people were talking about the rapier๐Ÿ˜€
