Issue 12 gun elevation system. I have just completed the gun elevation gearbox and found that when constructed as shown part 12-03 catches and the gears slip when they are rotated by hand but if the part is reversed the system runs smoothly. At the back of my mind I seem to remember seeing a comment previously but of course failed to bookmark it. Has anybody else come across this.

Problem solved, there are two locating lugs either side of the slot on part 12-03 these have to fit either side of the guide rails in the casing, not very obvious from the pictures or mentioned in the instructions. When located correctly the part functions with no problem.

Well done tubab, problem solving of the instructions is always a huge part of doing these kits!

Re, Issue 2 Anton Turret.

Further to my previous post refering to the recoil mechanism. The mechanism gives a good impression of firing when powered but the motor tends to stop in the recoiled position due the springs hence my impression that they were moving in reverse which of course they do when the mechanism is rotated manually, but when powered the speed of the motor overcomes this and the initial move forward is largely unnoticed .

I also started but never finished the wooden model , mainly due to the fiddly etched sheets which were very detailed, the current model overcomes most of this but I suspect the finest details will be dificult to reproduce in plastic due to their fragility. Time will tell but I suspect the electronics will overcome any criticism over detail.
