Big & Boxy Was:Maus? [TANKS]

Take a look at the Churchill.
They had several versions with big boxy turrets. There is a gun carrier that has a
simple "gun house" (more like gun mansion).
Big sponsons mean you can hide a lot of stuff in the hull and with teh bogies
mounted UNDER teh tank, you wont have to worry about breaking the suspension.
The sheets of metal that covered the tops and sides of the sponsons werent always in
place, so you have some "artistic license" when building it if you need to leave
something off for practical purposes
The Matilda is another example of this type of design, although it is smaller.
