Figured filling in open part of stern.  Cut sections out of Lindberg 1/240 USS Olympia superstructure where 5" guns mount. 
Unlike Revell kit the guns don't rotate, ya just glue barrels in.  Cut open slots where 5" guns are and mounted Revell 1/426 USS Arizona rotating 5" turrets behind slots.  Cut down barrels and drilled holes in which will be metal 50cal barrels.  Will have one rotating 50cal turret at each stern corner under main deck with Olympia parts wrapping around stern to fill opening.

>attached pictures< show way parts go together and how turret fits over plastic tube stock so it can rotate.
If stern parts glue together OK, can get back to upper deck.
