Dust Skirt Assembly
We have seen a few people asking about how the dust skirt attaches to the T-80 and we thought it would be easier to show you a render straight from Tim’s computer. As you can see, the wavy bit sits horizontally just under the bow of the tank, whilst the flat section sits vertically underneath. Where the dust skirt attaches to the hull, you can see some small locating cut-outs to help you position it on the tank.
