I managed to get some of the ammo into the turret racks, if you want a full load you will have to do it in layers.


I know the brown areas don't look quite right, they were wood blocks uued to hold the ammo on the racks. When a round was needed the wood block would hinge up releasing the round.

Here is the turret upper shell, note the inner wall. I would recommend fitting the lower hull before installing it and trim it to fit before installing the interior parts. Otherwise you will get the gaps shown in the following pics.

There is also places to be filled on the front bottom corners.

That's all for now, I'll have more when I get everything here fixed. Donald

Finishing up the turret assembly,
this shows the rain guard over the optical sight.


This pic shows one of the completed spare track assemblies for the turret sides.
I recommend installing the metal rod and securing block to the track first then hang the track assembly on the hooks and glue the securing block in place. Trying to install the rod to the track after hanging the track is a lot harder.



Now it's time to paint the turret.

With the ammo in here it's beyond me why they put a pistol port in the rear hatch, you cant use it.

The camo is as amazing as the interior! I certainly hope to see your KT in Columbia, SC this year.

I'm glad you liked it Matt, the Camo was done by dabbing a piece of sea sponge into paint and then onto the model.
