Thanks, guys. Sorry I am a cheapskate so my photo bucket account is free and my pictures have their big watermarks. Is there a better free way to post pictures here? I would be glad to try a better way.

The top turret took me a week to build. It was my first time scratch building a cylindrical shape that will sit upon another cylinder. I did some math, plotted the turret shape as it would looked unrolled. Printed that out and glued it on a styrene sheet and cut that out.

I have new and greater respect for ca glue. In the last picture, you can see the translucent ca glue showing through on the left part of the top ring. The right half is opaque styrene. Basically, I oversanded the styrene cap and exposed the ca glue on the left. The remarkable thing is that there is no seam or transition gap between the exposed ca glue and styrene cap. Once i airbrushed the whole thing, I cant see the transition at all.
