The inside of the turret seems roomy enough...

Detailing the turret roof. The close defense weapon in the kit is integral to the roof and barely resembles the real thing. It was shaved flush and a hole was drilled. It was replaced by a (not glued yet) Nahverteidigungswaffe taken from a DML Smartkit.

The bolt holes around the loader's hatch are for securing the deep wading "Schacht"

Mandatory: there is a step on the lower turret, and it's not supposed to be there. It must be removed, so that the profile looks like this:

Thanks!
Addressing another issue of this old kit (it was first released 20 years ago) - lack of towing eyes for the rear hull. I've cut them from the now redundant floor plate, that luckily has the right thickness.
