That is SO coool! :D

Making decent periscopes/episcopes is a science per se and what you are pulling off might just be the best solution to date! Some need just two - others more, like, seven.
The late Mike Stannard had an option of optical glass prisms for his periscope sets. I always thought that to be the absolute, ultimate. There has also been a resin option, pretty blurred, or even milky. The way you do this is very down to business, especially if there is no need for internal detail.
Very exciting, indeed! :D
A little too much is about right...

Did also countersunk all screws on engine deck. Looks more realistic I think.
And did a bit work on the the square screws which I thought were a bit on the larged side.
