Tachikawa Ki-54 "Hickory" - Mito RHG #1

The January 1943 issue of the magazine "Koku Shonen" featured a visit to the Mito Rikugun Hiko Gakko (IJAAF Aviation School). The student pilots have just returned from their training flight and give a report to their instructor. A Ki-54Otsu is in the background.

Nice pic's,
If I'm right the rear turret is retracted in the fuselage of this Ki54Otsu. How did that work?
There should be a decent 1/72 kit of this beautiful plane!
