Shells moulded with the racks is a shocker. Getting a decent paint job on the shells is all but impossible

A common mistake to call it Porsche turret. It is seen many times.

Not sure what that means...anyways, a tremendous kit in spite of the occasional niggle. I'm looking forward to clearing enough room on my work bench to start this one soon!

Any idea what colors the shells should be? I have seen some down brass and others looking a steel shade. If Iím going to mask it all off, I want it right the first time and I havenít found any other sources.

Might possibly have been a mixture, as from what I understand metals like brass were getting in short supply and they were having to use other metals for the shells.

Like you I have not heard a definitive answer, and I imagine like many things German there won't be one.
