Thank you Daniele, she's really coming along well. The muffler setup looks so real, very impressive!

How many times did you measure out the turret locations before you started cutting?

Jeff I measured several times,ending up with a nice cluster of markings... I ended up averaging as the ancient said: in medio stat virtus!

Nice update Daniele. Really like what you've done with the turret. Everything is very impressive as we've come to expect! Thanks for sharing your work.

My mistake, I thought you were doing a split in half hull.
