I can't build a Churchill if you are! And it would be about 4 feet long in 
1:6th scale, if I recall correctly.
I am a bit of a suspension nut. It's a sort of obsession. I used to build 
car suspension systems out of technical lego when I was younger and I 
couldn't build a tank without suspending it in a way that was similar to the 
original. It just wouldn't seem right.
