Default question concerning where to attach seeker missiles?

This has boggled my mind for quite some time and unfortunately I have lost the instructions for my devilfish set.

as the title says, where on a devilfish is it possible to attach a seeker missile?

Everywhere you want.
There is no right or wrong, but many people like to use the "wings" as the mounting point.

you mean the front "wings" right? That seems to be the most logical place to mount them. But there seems to be no slot for the missile as the missile itself suggests there should be.

I usually just use magnets to hold them in place.

yeah, the missile suggests that there should be a place to attach them to because they are the same as the sky rays ones, on the sky ray there is a place to attach them to. :P

I usually stick mine underneath the vehicle, but forward enough so you can see it poking out from under the hull. Imo it's the best place to stick them, as putting them near the engines could prove to be unwise...

I put mine on top, in the little patches of bare metal/piping to the sides of the top hatch. Looks kinda cool, like those v8 missile carriers the soviets used (okay it takes alot of imagination but it does look cool).

Under the wings for me. It sucks that you only get one, when it can have up to 4.

Buy lots of sky rays then. Im getting loads of them just because of the missiles. Im going to use them as devilfishes, but it doesent hurt to have the extra bits. Its just 30 kr anyways, so about 6 dollars roughly...
