It’s not a blow-by-blow tutorial, but these two posts from professional modeler Michael Fichtenmayer give a great general overview of his process for building these cool “DF.9 Anti Infantry Batteries” from the Star Wars universe from styrene stock and Bondo. I especially like his trick of using sea salt and hairspray between coats to simulate flaking paint.
