Re: PzII Turret Interior

This will swivel back allowing change out of the barrel without removing the MG as the real version

Re: PzII Turret Interior



Small update on MG, added the retaining pin to hold rear closure in the locked position, all this allows chang out of the barrel as in the real MG mount





And one last one showing what this is all about



On a side note, the barrel in the last pic I painted with Model Master Metalizer Lacquer 1455 as suggested by ROB48 (I had ordered this before I saw Armorguys tutorial), it's a great match to the color DML used, and is great for those of us that don't yet own an airbrush...and looks amazing imo, will just needs a lil weathering when finished, thanks Bob

Re: PzII Turret Interior

A few turret updates, modified the lift hooks, the original on the left and the modified on the right, I made one of the holes larger sans the real lift hooks


Drilling and countersinking screw


Worked on hatch interior, coated head pads with real leather and modified latch n locking mechanism to be a lil more believable


Working on hinges and muzzlebreaks


Hinges are for turret hatches, removed old ones and am upgrading with Panzerwerks hinges I’ve had for a while


Working on the KwK’s, upgrading muzzle breaks with Armorpax’s, bottom is original DML, and top is with new muzzlebreak



And as with everything else thus far, I just can’t let go, more detailing on the muzzlebreak


More details n parts being worked on
