I'm back doing a little work/research on this and could use some help
Please cast your eyes over these kit pieces and see if anything looks familiar.
The first (circle piece) looks like a 1/72nd tank turret hatch piece. The rest are all about 1/4-1/2" tall.
The first one shouldn't be a tank turret hatch cupola due to having too many 'bumps'. The viewing blocks would have been more of 8-9 in number, much less than what is on this part. MPC issues of Airfix kits would necessarily have been after (or concurrent with) Airfix's original issues. However, that isn't to say there wasn't another Eastern European Vostok kit available at the time. But Eastern European kits weren't as accessible to the West then as they are now.
The third one looks like something from a ship model while the fourth could be part of a small, plain engine block. Fifth one down has an automotive engine block head feel to it (such as the part that fits between the cylinder heads on a V-8...

Does anyone have an Adams/LifeLike Atomic Canon kit? If so could you either take some kit part scans/pictures as I can't find a single one online
Or take 5 minutes to look over it for the parts highlighted above.
I sent my 3D files to Wasili to CNC the 'core', ensureing it would be both square and strong.
Reworked into his CAD software...
Super clean parts started to appear...
And now a test fit:
Can't wait for the parts to arrive here and the built begins!
