Hi gang,
Had to pivot from building the X-Wing the past week or so, as I had to pattern/restore a piece for an original Death Star Turret that was missing one of it's guns!

So while it was in hand, and with the owner's permission, I made a replica of the thing.

It looks like the elevation angle of the barrels is fixed, determined by holes drilled into the turret, so it would have to be a different model than the last pic.

That's super cool BTW!

yeah not the same as the one pictured (I dunno, maybe the bottom half)... this original is a mix of two towers. Parts would all be the same, but it's cool this was a mix, because I could replicate the grey AND the tan color they used!

I was hoping for this to happen or a blueprint with measurements to give it a try. :)
Thanks again gentlemen. ;)

Just received a set of the tower castings from Mike. Super Cool! It's bigger than I expected. Nice work Jason!
