Turret Exterior


The last stage of construction was to add al the bit and pieces to the exterior of the turret.

I started with the two turret hatches, the smaller of the two is the commander’s hatch

After that I installed the grenade launchers, aerial base plates, barrel and the cable reel.

Here is the completed turret…..

In the following picture I have added the .30ca/ machine gun. The MG is made of white metal which I had to polish to remove  seam lines, it support bracket was made from PE. To be honest it was a shame that it needed to be painted…

Finally, here is the Saladin already for painting…..

In the next update I will tackle the painting and weathering which will be very straightforward as I want to keep it simple.

Thanks for looking [thumb]
