KRAB from K9, WIP

Picking up from the Korean K9 inquiry, progress so far on the conversion:

Aside from different stowage and tools, tow points are different and each corner at the rear of the hull is raised as compared to the K9. I’ll also have to either re-work the AS90 gun tube or start over completely.

Admittedly half the work I’ve done up front is removing parts that are K9-only so I can do the KRAB fittings. It would have been easier to have started this conversion from the git-go, lesson learned.
The starting point:

The K9 turret is already on an Academy Merkava 3 hull as a what-if. :sunglasses:

Some basic stuff done, lots of head scratching going on though.

Nice progress. Have fun with the muzzle brake. :grinning:

I’m still noodling on the turret basket and the rest of the gun tube. :thinking:
Access doors on the rear are coming along though.
