Do the Turrets from the new Leman Russ models fit on the old chassis?

I'm wanting to pick up some bitz from the new one and I want to make sure the Turrets will match up.

Short answer: Not without work.

Different fittings on old v new. Old one has a larger hole, new one is smaller.

They dont line up, no. The new turret joint is alot smaller than the old one. You can probably get them to fit, but it will take a bit of conversion work.

My brother covered the hole in the hull with a piece of plasticard cut to fit, but glued a rare earth magnet to the underside before gluing the plasticard on.
Then he put another magnet on the inside of the turret.
It seems to work quite well, as he can freely swap them out as needed

I did the same thing to update my old Leman Russ Demolisher to the new style. It works great. So great I am tempted to do that for all the turrets even though they don't need it.

The hole in the old Leman Russ is 25mm in diameter. Glue a round base onto the bottom of the new turret and it'll fit.
