Week 94 This week we get the turret drive couplings and some pipe work.
The bits we received
And what we did with them
Now we can complete the turret drive. The flanges and couplings simply glue in place. Now the parts are awaiting painting.
The three pipes were assembled onto the main part without removing it from the fret. I cut away all bar one securing point so there is minimal touching up to do after painting.
The turret drive is painted gun metal. I'm not gluing the parts into the hull until everything is to hand.
The pipes are all painted gunmetal and glued in place.
Here's the other side.
