Due to a misscommunication with our factory, the locator tab on the Left hand of the Frankenstein kit is off by 90 degrees. If assembled right out of the box the Left Hand will NOT rest on the door as it should.

TO CORRECT this problem TRIM or REMOVE the locator on part #25 and cement the left hand in the correct position..
Here are links to photos that show the error and the correct assembly...

We don't know exactly how this error occured but hope that this note will help prevent problems for our customers...

There was a minor change made to the locator on the left hand at the test shot stage. That change should not have made any change in the orientation of the left hand.
Obviously the factory screwed up...
Final approvals were made from photos of revised parts due to time constraints.... the photos did not show part 25 from an angle that would have shown the screw-up...SOOOO we have a locator that is 90 degrees off!

Fortunately it doesn't require brain surgery to fix it...

This is simply Murphy's law as applied to model kit production...

Well, it could've been explained away that Dr. Frankenstein was in reality a Talosian "working without a guide". :tongue:
Thanks for the heads up, Dave, this is really a nice, big kit!

Not a big deal...I just turned the hand to the proper position, marked with a pencil the area to be altered, and Dremeled the slot in! Fits perfectly! :thumbsup:
