Step 3. The back is still open, so you'll need to glue the back plate to the back of the hull.

For the Centaur proceed to step 4a

For the Cromwell (75mm) /(95mm) proceed to step 4b.

Step 4a. To finish the assembly of the hull add the front piece to the front of the hull.

Step 7. Next add the front. This piece doesn't have a notch to ensure it is the correct way. So look at the image below carefully before glueing.

Step 8. When you're attaching your gun make sure the notches are aligned correct to ensure it is put in the corret way.

Note that the left barrel shown is the 95mm and the right side barrel is the 75mm. For the purposes of this guide we will use the 95mm gun but all steps are identical.
