The turrets don't move, I glued them in place. Not sure there'd be a reasonable way to make them move :)

Brush painted or airbrushed?

They do make 1mm diameter rare-earth magnets, which would be plenty strong to hold the turrets on and allow them to spin.

That looks great! Is it plastic or resin? What scale is the miniature?

I consider this a 'realistic image' of Earths first stage space military forces to look like.
Still mounting the 'wet navy' style turrets, as well as Port/Stbd fixed weapons.

Are those still available from the original maker? Is he still in business? Can't even remember the company name.

Thanks in advance, and, yes, well done, Mr. Harold!

These are "gzg" scale… not sure on the actual numbers.

These are resin casts.

Here is his webpage:

I don't think they are available anymore.
