So, a larger update on the front radar servo drive. This was a difficult one to get right. I started of a little bit like the AFV unit.
But i ditched the intermediate gear because i don't want the front radar to rotate 360 degrees, just want it to follow turret movement (panning).

Then there was the thing with getting the base frame to fit the slope of the turret bottom. Had to recreate the bottom in 3D and do a number of printing iterations to get it right.
Here the result in the design:



After a lot of tweaking on the gears, i managed to get it to run and fit right!



The servo kabel of the front radar up/down movement fits through the bearing center and under the base frame..

Now on to routing the servo cable in the front cable and to think about the design of the barrel elevation!
