Dakka, Dakka, Dakka

Not a lot done this evening due to work but I have undercoated the machine gun turret to see what it looks like, having stippled the top with plastic putty to create a cast effect and to hide the central hole. I've also added some armour plating skirt sections and a door to the wagon itself.

I'm hoping to get a bit more done to the wagon tomorrow including the buffer beams and the various fittings for the doors, together with the second turret. I'm still debating how to attach the turrets to the wagons, either using magnets and washers so they can be rotated, or by just gluing them in place with superglue? What do you think?


  1. Still looking good Jim! Personally, I'd superglue them. Rotating turrets would be good, but permanent fixing means you don't have to worry about the turret coming off during transport. Obviously that's IMO & YMMV!

  2. That's what I was thinking but it would be handy to be able to point them in the right direction...just for aesthetic purposes I guess?
