Quote from: Dizzyfugu on April 20, 2017, 11:42:39 PMMounting turrets on "something else" also has othter technical limits. It's not only about the weight (I'd assime that the Scorpion turret is aluminum and rel. light? But the high Saracen body AND the narrow track will cretainly make any sharp turn a risky thing!), there are also necessities concerning the ring bearing that carries the turret and distributes the weight over the hull. It cannot be too narrow, and just from a glance I'd say that the Scorpion/Saracen combo in its original form (as depicted) won't work and just looks goofy. The mount needs to be wider, so the hull base has to grow in width. Had this recently when I tried to mount a Coelian turret (for a Panther) on a Panzer IV: it does not work, despite initial different personal impression!IMHO, the only way to save this one is to widen the "greenhouse" of the Saracen, e .g. with styrene sheet up to the fenders' width - and in the same wake the roof could also be slightly lowered, so that the turret some down a little?
