For the turret rotation I use a little powdered graphite. You can pick it up at any store that sells those little derby cars like they build in the Boy Scouts. I pull the turret ring so that I can lift it and turn it over, and apply little graphite to the bottom of the turret and around the hole on the upper Hull. Then I just set it down and twist it back and forth a few times to let the graphite spread out and then I replace the turret ring and that usually helps quite a bit. As for gearbox noise, there's not a whole lot you can do, but you might try lapping them. I think I have a video about that where I lapped the gears on the brand new gear boxes, but they didn't really get much quieter. I usually just turn the engine sounds all the way up to mask it.
