Should the numbers be on the slant on the turret sides? Rye Field's new kit shows them that ways as did Cyberhobby's which were yellow numbers with white outline.Cyberhobby also included white numbers. Thanks.

Well, we have only one bad photo to work from.

And it's hard to read, because the Zimmerit lines distort the characters, plus the vision port messes up the leading zero.

The Zimmerit lines themselves are definitely slants, probably to match up with the roof. They're more slanted at the top of the nose than at the bottom.

But, looking closely at the digits, I'd say "NO"...they are not stepped to match the roof. Maybe they are stepped a little bit, maybe not at all, but nowhere near the roof angle.
