Very good work! I wonder what those two tubes on the turret were attached for?

They're equilibrators, in other words, they serve to balance the gun by the springs contained inside them. Photos of the prototypes at an earlier stage show the springs, for example at https://tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/us/t26e4-super-pershing but tubes were added over them to protect them later on.
