20t Medium tank update
I've made the the main turret now (sans details), and added a bustle and the mantle. I'm still not sure what kind of weapon arrangment it will have but I'm thinking of something with some kick, like a 57mm perhaps, though I'm not sure how common those were in the mid war period. I may go for a dual gun arrangement, say perhaps a regular QF 47mm with a co-axial 12mm machine gun.
The track assembly is coming along nicely, with most of the internal spaces filled with milliput so the piece will work when I make the mold. On the left side is an escape hatch.
This model is inspired by the Churchill, the Vickers Medium Mk III and the Daimler Benz Grosstraktor 1.
