Hi David. Nice work.

I've noticed your turret fits together better than mine. Did you alter it in some way?

Hi David

The only changes I made was notching the top braces so the side door hinges would fit.
I still have a gap on the back side about 6mm.

Thanks

Hi David,

Mine also has quite a bit to fill on the side/back turret armour. It wasn't obvious to me in your pictures.

Thanks...

David,

Nice job on the cap!

I haven't posted here before, but given that you did such a nice job on the idler I was wondering if you had seen Jeff's fine work?

Nice job!!!

This is my electrical lay out. Used standoffs on modules, rerouted speaker wires out the sides, made metal brackets for speakers. On test run everything worked fine. Only problem is the machine gun sound. There is none. The smoke worked fine on the first run, now it just trickles out the sides the fan is working and the block is hot and it has oil. Any help would be welcome.

Hi David

The machine gun sound, and all the other sounds are accessed from the Benedini card. Getting these is described in the full Benedini manual on www.benedini.de.

Your smoker sounds like it has too much oil in it. They best with absolute minimum amount.

Hi David,

Will your gun elevation motor clear the speakers and speed controller ?
