Hello,

Phil, thank you for your comment!
Now a short update. First I have built ammunition boxes for the machine gun, which are placed in the back of the turret.

Some spare ammunition boxes
Image

Storage in the turret, very tricky because of the armor thickness
Image

Next I added the zylinder for the turret hatch
Image

I added also some Details to the R/H gun
Image

And at least I added the handwheel for the turret traverse mechanism and the PT4-7 periscope
Image

The handwheel is animated and will be operated in parallel to the turret rotation function

Hi Gunter
You have done some great internal Turret detail and especially
to manage to fit it all in the small available area.
Cheers
Phil

Phil, thanks for the comment!

At the weekend I added some small details.

The covers at the upper hull
