Fusionhead Gunship Conversion

First up, we need to mark some pieces as to where we're going to cut them up:
The main hull (upper)
The main hull (Lower)
The left and right side hatches
The rear hatch
And a little space in which to wedge the Targeting Array
It's important to note here that we want to now assemble the hull as normal, before cutting into these areas. I made the mistake of cutting first, and found that my edges were not level due to the way the hull slopes inwards. It was fixed easily enough with my x-acto knife, but I just thought it might save some time for you guys.
After marking, we have the sub-assemblies all arrayed now.
The fusion cannon is of course, optional, feel free to substitute it for the weapon of your choice.
Close up on how the hull is cut out. This entire area is covered with plasticard later.
And now, time for the grand finale, the finished product.
As I said, I got into my groove and forgot to take WIP shots. should be easy enough to figure out though.
Proof that the turret can actually turn (although it's limited to about 120º forward)
