Default Spare track holders KT

I recently removed the spare tracks on my Tamiya king tiger to replace them with empty spare track holders. I noticed that the Tamiya spare tracks where installed asymetrical, is that correct. Do anyone have some good reference on where I should put my empty spare track hooks.

That is fine pictures indeed.. Thank you, but the other side? Does the spare track holdes sit in the same location and the spare link, are they "turned" the same direction as the ones on the left side? That's the problem my friends

Thank you all.

Here's some pictures of the right side of the turret on the King Tiger at Fort Knox.

Hope they help...

Gabriel,
Are you installing the Schumo track hangars? If so, they should have come with a template that shows where to install them. I've scanned in case you need them.
