Started off by constructing the basic lift platform which has a tab that nicely slides along the runner that will be fitted through the superstructure...
Here you can see how the two parts fit together...
I then added some handrails to the lift platform itself, still need to add a few more details such as safety chains and controls etc.
You can also see that I have added a little pulley at the top of the shaft and attached a chain to the platform. The chain will eventually loop around to the bottom of the runner and joining up with the bottom of the platform. This will give a continuous loop of chain that will hopefully allow the platform to be moved up and down but still hold it in place enough so that it doesnt drop under its own weight.
Here is a final shot showing how the lift provides access to 3 levels...
Still a bit of work to do to get it finished, but going well so far

nice addition. How did you make the elevator rail?
Basically just 3 layers of 1.5mm plastic card
First layer is the back, then two 3mm wide strips, then two 5mm strips all sandwiched together.

looks better and better every time you post something. When working with green-stuff do you use a Clay shaper? Also how do you do your rivets? Punch? Press? or cut from rod? the look to even for cut from rod.
Yes, for GS I have an Extra Firm Clay Shaper set (size 0).
The rivets are indeed cut from rods. I mostly use 0.75mm, 1.2mm and a few 2mm.

The wall of armour plating has been continued around the back and Iíve added a small curved section of railing around the chimney stack. The chimney stack has also been extended downwards to connect to the main deck.
On the main chimney stack Iíve added some baffles to the opening to provide some interest and detail. I have also fitted a Ďwoodení platform around the stack as a possible sniper position for a grot or two. Will eventually add access by means of a ladder of some description.
Iíve also added some drips on to the side of main chimney stack where it sits below the oozing pipe.
At this stage there is still more detail and gubbins to be added.
Other than the above I reckon I've added a few hundred more rivets to areas I have been avoiding
