Going by the pictures in the review the kit's turret is much longer than the replacement item. Is the kit that far off?

Roman states that the kit turret in the picture is from the Toldi III which had a larger turret.

yes, the kit turret is from another variant and is shown there only to see the difference in surface detail and molded on hatches.

Someone please come out with a simple-to-assemble track for this kit... (Magic tracks. Link and length tracks. Anything.) Building the Toldi 1 I have sworn to the Dark Gods I will never build another variant. And I've been praying to the same gods for these kits for years.

I saw that, but it is only noted as having "a different shape" without any elaboration. Because it's a different version it is difficult to tell what is a corrected shape and what is supposed to be different between the two versions.
