Thanks for this, Matt!

For the cupola, would it be easier just to cut off some periscope heads and glue them in? Or is there another advantage to replacing the whole thing? Seems like a lot of work...

I'm honestly bouncing around on that for my E-50 build. Cutting the cupola off would be pretty quick with a razor saw but the blending in would be a little time consuming. I may go with just installing periscopes from outside but that is more pieces to cut and test fit. I'll probably try that first the more I think about it.
