The SLA APC-55turret is finished.
Before glueing in part (1d) into turret part (1f), I did some other things. Part (7d) needs to be glued in before part (1f).
This part (7f) lower hatch ring must be glued in after slicing off registration pegs. Position in this configuration but cut off pegs.
I didn't do this and it made a weird oval.
My beautiful assistant saw this and thought I was making her a ring.
Such an imagination in that pretty little head
The TC scope has a sink hole in the cast. This is covered buy the PE part.
There are no registration marks to set the vision blocks onto the turret. I saw reference photos and it looked like the LH side was further back.
There was fit gap issues with this build so I used CA sand putty.
The reference photos I saw placed these vision ports at "about there" and "about there".
The left side is just behind the 90º mark. This is where I glued mine.
These are suppose to be glass so I polished mine here.
trim the PE hooks down to about half. I glued the tracks on first then glued the PE hooks parts into it later.
Stretched sprue was used to make the LH turret grab handle.
The i-sheets describe PE part 22t but for the water bottle rack on the RH rear side, use part (31t).
There PE was bent astound another wooden form for this.
