A couple of small points about this turret. The demarcations between many of the various surfaces of the casting are a bit too noticable. In the real thing the raddii of the fillets between the surfaces are generally bigger, making for a much more rounded shape as opposed to thefacetted shape seen in the shapeways aprts. It's not a huuge thing as the basic shape is very good, but sanding those corners a bit more does make the shape better.

Another small omission are the lack of triangular gussets under the turret rear overhang. On the real turrets there were integrally cast stiffeniong gussets that supported the overhang. Again, not a big deal and easy enough to add if you want to.
