[SW] Imperial Turbolaser Turret - New interior (20/04/2013)

Here is ma latest MOC, a turbolaser turret with its base. This turret will later find its place into a larger base.

Naturally, I found some inspiration from the Death Star turbolaser batteries but I still tried to develop my own style for the turret.

The turret itself looks heavily armored on the front and on the sides while more details are available from the rear side. I quite like the aggressive look it has.

The rear side is more detailed.

The lateral panels have the Cresh letter © from the Aurebesh written as identification mark. The rear side has its own design.

All my MOCs need to be playable by my son. This one is no excepption to the rule. The turret can rotate at 360° and the guns can move up. But there is more.
The inside is detailed:

So that the turret can welcome a gunner and the seat can lift off in order to add or remove a minifig.

The turret base can also be opened, revealing the enrgy generators and complex cabling system required to provide energy to both the turret guns and torating engine.

Quite some fun and I got more ideas for the inside.

So, more details about that new interior:

Simply follow this officer and his troopers.

The target is to have an operational battery!
Therefore the Stormtroopers must hurry, using the ladder which never breaks down.

So they are climbing.

At last, the 3rd floor, even of oen of them stayed at the 2nd floor.

But what does this Stormtrooper do on this control panel?

The bridge is now in place, Troopers can now access the turret.

Conclusions
Lot of fun and some headaches here and there. :)

Playability remains a priority.

That is pretty cool! I made something like that alonggggg time ago (2001?) and it was no where near this good. Keep it up!
