Figure I would post some pics before closing the turret. I got part of this kit from Dean and the rest from BarryC. Both of them were working on the Leo1A5 so had collected bits and pieces. I am more of the A4 fan as it was my first 1/35 scale modern built back a long time ago. The upper is basically a display model so I have to improvise all RC functions. After spending couple days trying different solutions, I ended up with a Heng Long turret ring/rotation unit for rotation, a DIY TBU base mount using the Clark unit, a very rudimentary recoil setup as I cannot get the elevation from the original kit to be RC, and none of the recoil units (Clark, Jarlath, Taigen) will work with the mantlet from the display model. IR emitter in the Target sight in the mantlet as well as co-ax MG.

Turret is basically a glue on so once I closed it, there is no easy way to open it back up again. No screw mount for magnet or anything that can easily remove again. Drive is the Tamiya clutch system with a single motor and seems to work well.

A little bit more done now. Waiting for parts to complete the front glacis plate (tow hooks and winter track cleats and rack) and back plate (mud guards) as well as decals.

I have a legacy Tamiya 1/16 scale M4 Easy 8 w 105mm Howitzer with that same dual clutch dual server setup…was really glad to see someone else with it!
