Ma.K Hover Tank - part eight

The detailing to the turret continues.....

I picked up the smoke dischargers from Worcester Wargames - they have a box of spares that they allow modellers to rummage through. I was able to pick up a couple of items for the tank then a suitable donation to charity and Ta-Da.

The barrel and mount were scratch built from a plastic lollipop stick, some spare tubing and larger, round plastic tubing cut in half lengthwise. The yellow gun mantle is a section of Biro pen barrel and further detailing are slivers of plastic rod or plastic tubing from the spares box.

I have reinforced the join between the gun barrel and the mantle with a section of paper clip and all construction was done with superglue.

Great scratch building. With all that detail it's going to look crackers when painted up.
