For anyone that has built the M50 (using the Def Turret), Did you just glue it to the hull or make an adapter? I am currently attempting to use this on the Tasca Composite hull and the Tasca ring is way to big. I am going to probably use .10x.188 strip and just glue it to the inner face of the turret. Open to anyone's suggestions though.

Just shim the turret ring on the hull or build up the plug on the turret. The DEF turret is the wrong shape (based on the inaccurate Dragon turret??) so I quit using it.

Seems DEF was recently working on an improved & corrected version of the turret.

I had heard and read about the size issues, but as it has less work involved (canvas cover and bustle ring), I was considering using it. I also have Greg's beautiful turret, but his has no canvas cover and I need to make a bustle ring. Might be time to work outside my comfort zone a bit.

If I can ask - what solution did you use for an accurate M50 turret?

Thanks!
