Mike,
Thanks.
Sounds interesting, best of luck with the ambulance project.
The aft gun platform (when fitted- PT103 didn't have it) sat a little further forward and actually slightly overlapped the centre decklights on their inner corners. Italeri missed this in their kit and also have the tube mounts in the wrong place. I just wish i could find photo evidence to back this up. I had to move loads of features due to dimensional error build up moving aft. Just a small observation for which i feel awkward but i know you want to get it correct and appreciate the attention to detail you are showing. Love the .50 cals and their trigger mechanisms.

Best Regards,
Stu.

So the 20 MM no deck mount platform , move a bit forward , does the gun pedestal bolt to the deck ? the tubes mounts, I measured them from the Elco plans, not a math guy so the scale conversions could be off a bit, how do they look to you ??

Mike,
What i meant was, you need the platform fitted but it moves forward to partially cover the inner corners of the centre deadlights. This is shown on the elco drawing general arrangement. The pedestal mounts to the platform as standard. Tube mounts are fine where they are, dont touch them.

Best Regards,
Stu.

Stu, moved the base forward slightly covering the edges of the light frames, what I forgot to do was test fit with depression rail in place , all makes sense now. Mike

Mike,
Nice detail, what did you make them out of?

The ELCO plans said a flexible tube, which made sense because of up and down movement of the carriage. Used a section of bendable straw with pipe cleaners inside for stability.
