It can be tricky but usually you just need to be a bit creative and skillful with a hobby knife or dremel. 

Which tank are you considering?

The simplest way is to gut and cut away most of any stock airsoft parts and glue a servo to the side of the unit wherever it fits best, then use the roof of the turret as the anchor point for the control arm. Adjust as necessary Smile

Here is a pic of what one guy over on RCU did with his T-34. He also used a servo for the recoil too.

Steve just put the servo gear that turns the arm as far back as possible. It will help keep the barrell striaght and keep a nice movement.
I always just cut a slot in the BB mechanism wall ( after gutting it ) and slide a servo into the slot. I prefer to have my servos laying on their side rather than standing up. That way the servo bottom does not go down into the tank when you have the gun elevated. I use all the space in my lowers that I can

the upper hull board is the little board with the 8pin header that the 8 pin connector goes to from the main board.that connects headlight LEDs, turret rotation, etc. it's usually screwed into the top part of the hull.

i jut made one out of steel wire that coincidentally fits snugly in the hole in the servo arm.  bent it in 2 places, and the other end fits loosely in a hole in the piece of the airsoft housing i left in place.
