turretI then moved onto the turret. Having decided what components I would like to portray or reveal with the cutaway I applied the necessary surgery: I sheeted over the turret rim/base upper face using 0.10mm sheet to avoid having to fill and sand EPM’s. Due to raising the fighting compartment floor to allow for torsion bar clearance I had to raise the turret a similar amount to retaining breech guard clearance. This was achieved by simply adding a space ring to the underside and removing the turret locating tabs. I then proceeded to add details including the turret fume extraction fan and motor, cabling and modified the kits turret seats. The Skif breech received some much needed detailing and that kits’ etched guard was utilised. Painting was carried out exactly as per the lower hull: Turret halves were assembled and with that, all interior work was complete.
