  1. Ladies and Gentlemen! Children of all ages! Welcome to the greatest.....well, um to a pretty good build of a pretty big thing. To set the stage; A friend of mine does large scale RC aircraft models. His latest completion was a 1/9th scale B-17G representing Nine-O-Nine. a Fortress that is still flying. The model was brilliant with something over 5000 rivets, chipped paint, and some amazing weathering applied to the exterior. He likes to do scale events and felt that his model still lacked something. Like an interior. He had a ball turret 3d printed and realized that he couldn't finish it to his own satisfaction. So, I got it. I immediately started cutting it apart along the lines of the real turrets castings. Much priming and sanding got me a nice clean interior surface to begin from. Ammo boxes were cut out of balsa and skinned with .010 sheet styrene. The gun control unit was made up out of the usual bits of plastic. It took a lot of digging to figure out what this thing actually looked like. Not a lot of pictures of the insides of ball turrets. But I am persistent... This all took a while and I have a lot more photos to show but I need to knock off to-night The good thing about this thread is that I actually finished the build so that you know there will definitely be some sort of conclusion to all this... I can see where I'll have to learn how to reset pic sizes.....
