Nice! I'm doing the exact thing, Dragon hull with the printed turret. Your build will be handy reference.

Hi Jim,

If you are using the old DML hull, you will encounter issues with the turret fouling the splash ring and ventilator. I shaved everything down to get the turret to rotate, but wish that I'd just added a ring of 0.040" plastic as a riser under the turret instead! Good luck.

The one good thing is the DML hull was thick enough at the back for me to file the "grizzly notch" into it without having to add anything underneath.
