I'm working on a Churchill Mk3 because it's the ugliest tank around on the 
battlefield, especially because it's got the tracks exposed.
No pictures yet of the project, I just made the drawings and am scrounging 
I say have a go with the Churchill type, I'm curious to see what you come up 

BTW: do you have any idea about the size in 1:6 scale? I do :-)
