Yes, if all goes well the guns will move freely inside the gun shields and the gun shields will move inside the sponsons. Good luck.

I could explain my last post a bit better. The guns in the gun shields will move in elevation only (up and down). The gun shields in the sponsons should only traverse (move from side to side). Put them working together and you will have a good range of movement.

I'm sure we all look forward to seeing your work Will. Don't forget that few plastic modellers have 100% satisfaction with their efforts. Also, in some quarters moveable parts are considered to be slightly old fashioned these days, although being slightly old fashioned myself I like having the option.

Well, when it comes to gun mounts, I like the ability to have them posable (subject to blast bags etc (which don't apply to WW1 AFVs anyway)) so I can change the position occasionally rather than play with them regularly.

Though I fly through the shadow of the valley of death, I shall fear no evil, for I am at 65_000 feet and climbing.
