Ok here we go with another HMMWV tutorial

It's turret time ....

Go to the kitchen, and steal something like this ....

That's 6 1/2" diameter...

Now, go to your closer hobby store and get this (0.080" thick, styrene sheet):

Place the plate on top the styrene sheet and draw a circle like this ....

Find the center of circle ... that's gonna be your homework .. :banana. and somebody please, post how to find the center for the guys ...

Next ....

Ok, draw an inner circle, diameter:. 5 -1/4"
http://a7.cpimg.com/image/81/46/31230337-e891-02000180-.jpg

Trace a parellel line to the horizontal one, 2-1/2" from center, as shown ...
http://a7.cpimg.com/image/9F/47/31230367-834a-02000180-.jpg

Now, trace a parellel line to the vertical, 1-15/16" from center to right side, as shown ...

http://a9.cpimg.com/image/B5/47/31230389-950e-02000180-.jpg

On the bottom horizontal line, mark a dot to right side @ 5/16" from center

http://a5.cpimg.com/image/4B/55/31230795-f19d-02000180-.jpg

On your right vertical line, mark another dot from top intersection @ 1-4/16" downwards.

http://a5.cpimg.com/image/87/56/31230855-055c-02000180-.jpg

Use the same plate to trace a curved line between those two dots.

http://a9.cpimg.com/image/E7/49/31230439-0d88-02000180-.jpg

Now, this time to the left side of the first horizontal line, mark another point @ 2-1/4" from center.

http://a8.cpimg.com/image/0E/4A/31230478-1953-02000180-.jpg

Trace a verical line @ that point....

http://a9.cpimg.com/image/4B/4C/31230539-cf3f-02000180-.jpg

Draw a 60 degrees triangle as shown....

http://a9.cpimg.com/image/69/4D/31230569-331f-02000180-.jpg

Mark these two sides of triangle @ 1-14/16"
http://a0.cpimg.com/image/7E/4E/31230590-363f-02000180-.jpg

Trace a vertical line from one point to the other ...

And start cutting.
Remember, use a fine sharp tip, like x-acto no. 2

http://a4.cpimg.com/image/54/FA/31235924-675e-02000180-.jpg

do the outside first ....

http://a6.cpimg.com/image/06/F7/31235846-8249-02000180-.jpg

then the inside ....

http://a8.cpimg.com/image/B2/FD/31236018-af47-02000180-.jpg

You can use this fancy tool I found the other day for circle cutting.
you can cut up to 5-1/4" of diameter with it.
It won't work for the outside circle though.

Stay tune for 2nd part ....
