Firstly the turret pics.
Next some pics of the rear stowage bins fabricated by Howard. These are superb and exactly to scale, however, they are too small for the rear panel so I'm not sure what we're going to do about that :-/ Not H's fault, I gave him the correct dimensions but the rear panel is not correct so they're about 20mm too short. Its so annoying as I'd wished I'd checked the rear panel measurements and adjusted the bins accordingly but cest la vie :-(
Next some short videos demonstrating some of the features of the working electrics.
Couldnt get the short video showing the idler adjusting so here's the link to the YouTube appearance.
Idler Adjustment Video
Note how slow the idler moves and the led lighting when the limit switch has cut power to the motor.
This shows what happens inside when the idler is moving on the outside. Also shows the limit switches cutting power to the motor and putting the lighting the led on the control panel.
And to prove the turret works ok! We think the belt needs tightening as when the turret is sitting on the hull it tends to catch a bit as it rotates making it bounce too and fro.
Wont get much done this weekend as we've got some work to do on our tank transporting truck. More as and when.
