    It's a snug fit, I've had no problems with mine.

    RE: tiger turret

    On the upper hull there are "slots" and on the bottom of the turret there is "tabs" you align those and then drop in and turn (sort of) lol.

    I think he is talking about the turret roof.

    RE: tiger turret

    Slide it under the two tabs at the back of the turret from the storage boxes. Mainly it is just a tight fitting piece. In multiple years of battling I've only had the top come loose once.

    RE: tiger turret



    I have seen a couple of Tigers at Danville turret tops come loose during battles, probably from hitting scenery. When I built mine, I used magnets to hold it on tight.
