    I really don't like the word cute, but I can't help it with this tank. I suppose it's just the way it was designed. I mean the Sherman is kind of the same way. Our early tanks just didn't look very menacing.

    But, this thing is fantastic. Whoever bought it certainly got their money's worth.

    [Stijn Oom] lol
    Great job Tyler, does it fit a figure? :)

    peterlmorris Thanks! I totally agree ;)

    Joris Blok No...the focus was on form rather than fitting a fig.

    D'aww... you dissapoint me man, most of your creations are top notch, and this one actually looks like it could easily it a fig inside. :p
    Ah, I guess that the consumer could do that himself.
    Great job anyway. ;-)

    Wow it looks so chibi! It looks great!

    Awesome! This is actually fairly close to minifig scale (I think).

    Wow.

    You show us again that you can excel at nearly any genre you put your mind to.

    Yeah, way to go!

    I love inter-war tank design, as P Morris said there's a diminutive appeal, especially on the Grant/Lees' and their awkward sponson-mounted armament. I applaud the detail on the suspension.

    Scale is irrelevant. This lovely little tank screams 'Grant' from the thumb [as a Tamiya tank kit builder of old], and that's what counts - it ticks all the boxes for what makes a good M3. Personally, the brown thing on the side isn't my fave part - would've preferred the hull door instead BUT the important part is that someone shelled out cash for charidee to get this built, not what we think. Super build!

    Stunning. I don't know why everyone is complaining, this looks beautiful no matter what scale it is.

    does it fit a microfig? They're more accurately proporitioned so they're "better" anyways.

    I love the scale discussion. I actually have an idea. I'm going to try scaling things differently in height and width and see if they look better with minifigs. EVERYTHING will become short and fat.

    Mike I think this idea you have is what "minifig scale" should be, aka. chibi.

    The scale question is always tricky since Lego isn't to scale. I always love Tim's analysis when talking about scale.
