PBR Restoration Project
PBR 7331 Forward Gunners Position

The gun tubs I purchased were in really bad shape and in desperate need of a make over.

Restorations of the Mark 56 Turrets as of Jan 2009. They look much better cleaned and repaired. Next they will get a fresh coat of Marine Corps Green Semi-gloss paint, Federal Standard 24052 (FS24052).

Damage to the elevation pistons was hidden using PVC tubing.

Freshly painted Mark 56 Turret for hull 7331

These turrets look so much better with all the damage repaired and with a fresh coat of paint.

I used Marine Corps Green semi-gloss as the base color.

Painting the interior. The brass collectors were painted flat black.
