Step 10. Finally, attach the Self-defence AA machine-gun to the turret. Below: The fully-assembled Honey.
Step 1. To add a tank commander, use the open cupola rather than the closed version. Step 2. Next, add a tank commander to the inside of the open cupola.
To attach the turret to the hull, you can use rare earth magnets (sold separately in the online store here). Simply attach one to the bottom of the turret and the top of the hull. Learn more about using rare earth magnets here.
The other option is to use the turret peg found on the plastic sprue. To do this, simply attach the peg to the bottom of the turret. The turret peg then simply mates with the hole in the top of the hull.
