Hello All,  I'm in the process of an extensive build to show as much interior detail of the Abrams using the RFM w/ interior kit.  I want to open the 3 panels covering NBC equipment bay on the left side of the hull deck under the turret.   There are hinges near the hull/turret opening and the individual panels also have bolts around their edges.  My question:  how does the crew access this bay without removing the turret?  Do the panels come off completely or do they hinged up?  I hope my question is clear, I greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks
Phil Daniels

I'm fairly sure servicing the NBC over pressurization system is not a crew level task. I seem to remember that chemical troops need to do it as part of decontamination. I don't ever recall seeing the covers removed.

Hi Robin, thx for the reply.  Based on that, I may have to reconsider my plan to open that area up.

thx again,
