Week 46 This week sees more details for the turret
The bits we received
And what we did with them
I've made a couple of changes to the parts this week, to improve the accuracy. I assembled the hatch damper and breathing tube, but these are switched round, compared to the instructions. That way the hatch damper is actually in line with the hatch bracket. I've trimmed off the end of one of the supports, so tat the damper can be moved closer to the hatch. They were painted ivory after assembly.
The damper piston (or whatever you want to call it, part 344) has been shortened so it's in the closed position.
The brackets for the machine gun roof rail were assembled and painted, and the rail painted black. Then the brackets were glued to the rail.
Here is the rail glued in place.
Finally, the last two parts were glued in place. I think I will give the lens of the light a coat of red paint at some convenient time.
