    Martin 250 turret

    Can any one help , I am in the process of restoring a Martin 250 upper turret but desperately in need of dimensions of the gunners seat .I have made a replica seat base copied from an original but now in need of the seats overall height and details of the lower strengthening ribs.

    You would be better contacting Aerotrader, they probably have a load on the shelf. Its where we bought our turret and parts from.

    There is an example at Duxford in their Mk.X Lancaster.
    I visited a few years ago and got inside so they well be able to accommodate you for a visit.
    Good luck.

    Can't help with bits, but that is a lovely looking turret.

    If you're in the UK you can come and measure ours on its stand at East Kirkby

    Thanks NX611 if I have no luck in the next few months and if I am in the area I will pop in with my tape measure! Also thanks to every one else for their kind remarks and suggestions.
