Sorry for the lack of progress over the last couple of weekends but been sidetracked!
Progress has been made on the electrics both the main panel and control panel. The control panel will be accessed through the engine hatch on the upper deck. This is linked by an umbillical cable to the main panel. The main panel has been built up (I dont think I've missed anything!!) and is now ready for wiring up, thats not a five minute job!
Howard arrived yesterday with the elevation mechanism more or less completed. That was a surprise! He's now taken the gun barrel to make the recoil mechanism and barrel connection (to be able to remove the gun barrel, have you seen how long it is in 1/4 scale?) He's also got the old base of the turret to carry on with the turret support frame.
Thats it for now. We're off for a week down in Somerset this next week so there wont be much to report for a couple of weeks but I shall crack on with wiring up the electrics as and when I can.
