Come to think of it, this could be a killer battle tank - people will be laughing so hard that they will be dead before they know what hit them. Now if I can just find some documentary proof of the color. Remember the US Navy had a pink submarine in the Second World War for at least part of one patrol.
Ha, it wont be hard to pick a winner that is for sure. Metal lower chassis, metal drive and idler wheels, metal road wheels, new metal turret, steel gearboxes... etc. There is a picture here on the forums of a gold tank with LED flames for the exhaust, you should do something like that to it

Suggestions? I can always get it changed. More below...

It will not be in a kit form.
As for paint you guys dont seem too thrilled about this one. I can still have the scheme changed if you dont mind giving me some suggestions. Would it be better if we did the stencil different? The only thing I ask is that it is historically correct. Post what you want or what you already have and lets see what I can do
