I can't see anyway to put this together such that the gun can be elevated.
Here is an image of the parts for the main gun. The Barrel is a loose fit in the inner and outer mantlets. The pivot sits in the back of the mantlet to its left. There is nothing to hold it there, i.e., to stop it falling back into the Turret.
The only way I can see to get the gun to elevate is to glue the outer mantlet to the barrel in such a way as to clamp the inner mantlet between the outer mantlet and the pivot, but as I mentioned it is a loose fit and would require a sleeve of some sort. I've never come across this before but I've never built Dragon models so maybe I'm missing something.
Any advise/help would be appreciated.
I build dragon kits all the time but mainly German, im about to start the Turret on a Panzer 4 so ill see how that goes.
have you tried using some Tamiya Tape to tighten the barrel by wrapping it around in inner part of the barrel so its out of sight ?

This is what i had to do just now on my panzer build with a replacement barrel.
