These model turrets were designed from official drawings of the real turrets.  They are NOT 3D-printed copies of any plastic, paper card or resin kits' parts therefore they may be sized and shaped differently than the parts in your plastic, paper card or resin kit.  Some adjustment to your kit's parts or other aftermarket sets such as photo etch may be needed for best fit.
