Project "Turret Enable" has started.  The top flange of the gun tower was cut off flush with the tower proper.DSCI0260.thumb.JPG.e856dc59c5073574033ebc96a25ecb00.JPG The RADAR tower flange was shortened to 3/4".DSCI0263a.thumb.JPG.f0efae6886df58174a5d3a16e4d8fd0f.JPG  The tube shown in the last posting was cut in half and positioned over the respective towers for tracing the tube shape on the top edge of both towers for trimming.DSCI0265.thumb.JPG.623e5989eb648fc44ac813a9a12a6dc4.JPG  A fortunate find at work, was ready to toss the tube out, thought it would make a good storage tank.DSCI0261.thumb.JPG.2a5a7e0afeca488df912a2a0983071eb.JPG Once the tubes were fitted they were glued to the bases instead of the turrets. Here i am letting it dry upside down, allowing the extra glue to run down the tube and tower forming a larger bonding area.DSCI0262a.thumb.JPG.e45c3df07faf3fb44d493eb73cb5e69f.JPG  Here the scrap cut off will be used to fill in the corner gaps:DSCI0264.thumb.JPG.6fb4e330aa424c5501f6da7b7d435a75.JPG   DSCI0266.thumb.JPG.20ef2a7047fcb90d82ba2ef1879f9177.JPGMore when completed.

More trash picking... ah, excess material reserve stock.  I located more heavy duty tubes, much smaller than the one for the turrets.  So some construction paper, the tubes, and a malfunctioning dash compass components.  let's see what I can come up with.DSCI0268.thumb.JPG.84007f4c74be6f22dd7a96278e937a66.JPG

Here is where I am at for the moment.  The compass is rotating but not fast enough for the camera to show it.  This could be an omni-directional IFF/SIF (Identification Friend or Foe/Selective Identification Feature) RADAR unit verses the old Earth directional rotating beam RADAR.

More projects in progress with stuff I keep finding.  Here another type of, maybe an HVAC, structure (a cat food container.)DSCI0273.JPG.b733de9a360af125dda4bcb1b746ed49.JPG  Possibly Command and Control structures (from mask packages... you know... the ones that say "will not protect you from covid.")DSCI0274.thumb.JPG.fe92b1c6445833bcbbfafdb006aa1276.JPG   Antennas (tooth picks that hold sandwiches together.)DSCI0275.thumb.JPG.c1a5de07c1bae03191e8aada158bb0a2.JPG  The tower being glued and an alert warning beacon (cap from revolution flea treatment for cats.)DSCI0276.thumb.JPG.ad90877b06a61bd6027c0fdaa9be6de7.JPG  Also found two more generator sets (cupcake holders currently in the Kitchen sink being washed.)  I now watch everything being tossed when I visit friends and family. You just never know, the next structure could be just around the corner.

This is the result of haste:DSCI0284.thumb.JPG.2feceda449fa7bac9812e6b76a948af3.JPG   The paint used, says to shake vigorously for one to two minutes. DSCI0285.thumb.JPG.eba0afc0128a6439cacd20024dc3a87a.JPG The first time I used the two minutes and the coating went on perfectly.  The second time I did one minute and the plastic melted.  Haste makes waste, although I may be able to use them as battle damaged Generator units.

The containers are from cat food, cocktail sauce containers (Command & Control centers?) with cover (Missile Silo covers?) from take out.DSCI0289.thumb.JPG.da8b92143047547de467215315764002.JPGDSCI0290.thumb.JPG.d74fcfc2e96a27cc6dcec94e0bcab4eb.JPG  Added a SatCom dish, left over from the Shield Generator Tower, the back ring is where the surface radio antennas will be mounted. Mask packages (Classified).DSCI0291.thumb.JPG.ff73697850a1b86fd94690143e14a72d.JPGDSCI0292.thumb.JPG.77f0c5e2cac18911621ac1d8e729fab9.JPG A cookie container, looks like a bunker of sorts.DSCI0294.thumb.JPG.035971e4d66a62f23ea31136312e36d9.JPG  I will mount four more SatCom dishes on it.

Newest additions: More HVAC(?) structures, and missile silo hatches... a rather hugh one for that bottom hatch.DSCI0311.thumb.JPG.adc598d55df9ccd3d6bd5d6e3a9e6dc0.JPG Some Ammo Bunkers (Suet containers that has an end shaped like a door when it gets added later) and another ATC/ADC command structure (Fig Newton container).DSCI0313.thumb.JPG.654230c5ee1a3b634dd91063552c36ab.JPG  These are from Nobel Knight Games clearance section and look more impressive as Ammo Bunkers.DSCI0309.thumb.JPG.6405a0eba18ca4571d19d6104e5cfd64.JPG  Maybe the others could be Maintenance structures or whatever, any ideas out there?
