1/6th. And actually, it wouldn't be any bigger then the T-34 or Tiger. Plus 
it has alot of advantages (Narrow forward profile, lots of space, etc.).
And as I am apparetly an expert in the A7V, I thought it would be easy (And 
it will be).

Besides, durring WW1, the A7V scored something like a 13:1 kill ratio 
against Allied tanks, don;t you agree it would be fitting to have it fight 
the Mk.V?

Anyway... yea, I'm seriously considering rivited aluminum, besides, it would 
add the metalic part to it.

PS: for those who're interested, I'm making an exact external 1/6th replica 
of A7V 561 "Nixe", who was the first tank ever to fight with and to destroy 
another tank in combat.

I was thinking of using tin for my next tank. I think tin would work well 
because its pretty easy to work with and is rather strong. I would say 
alluminium would be better because it's lighter but it's also more 
expensive. I considered making an A7V at one stage, they certainly look 
cool. What scale are you making yours in? it would be rather big at 1/6 
wouldn’t it?
