The image on the box and the building instructions differ from each other regarding the mounting of the front bumper:
On the box picture the bumper is mounted onto the lower studs of the bracket, but the instructions say the bumper has to be mounted onto the top studs of the bracket.
Thank you for your messages. We'll forward your remarks to the right department.
Still, we hope you enjoy building COBI sets.
I wonder why this set does not have the "steering" feature like the set 2368 "M3 Scout Car" and set 2479 "Zil-157 Katyusha BM-13", although set 2499 was released after the other sets, and there would have been enough space for tiltable wheels in the front of the M16 Half-Track model to include this cool feature.
This feature was first introduced with the "Battle of Berlin" magazine set "Sd.Kfz.251 Hanomag" (now re-released as an updated set 2442), so I assumed ALL new Cobi releases would include this feature upgrade from now on.
