My S2a was built on the last day of S2 production, so it has the lights in
the wings, but still the crash box (synchro on 3 and 4 only). Never seen a
S2a with an all-synchro box. Rad is S3-type. The lights in the wings were
started for export models only in 1968, and only made it to UK models when
supplies of the original wings ran out, 1969-ish, or so I'm told.
