If there will be no one else to fight , then paint ball is not worth the hassle/cost.
I fancy a compressed air gun that can fire say foam shells [ nose weighted ] with say some dry poster paint on the nose and then shoot at 2d card targets. The targets could be made to look quite realistic eg the rear of a Tiger 1 or a panzer IV rear and the dry paint would indicate where the target was hit , just fun and no where the law can try and excerpt its self !
Yes I had thought of asking someone in USA to get me a gun and strip it and post the pieces individually and some balls but to much trouble for only me ! and I need a working tank first.

If you stay on private land, keep it semi-automatic, and keep the speed below 300fps, nothing I read there will prohibit R/C Tank Combat in the UK.  The "The Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003" could be a hindrance for public displays of a paintball armed vehicles.  Maybe a dummy marker for such occasions?

Concerning marker costs in the UK.  Is it illegal to ship markers into the UK?  I've bought stuff from Canada and the UK for my tank when the price made sense.

The UK restrictions on paintball ammo sales are more restrictive than ours.  Here in the States anybody can buy them at any Walmart.  Their right next to the shotgun shells and weapons grade plutonium!  ;-)
