I'd say 1/12, but unfortunately I don't have a mantel!

how about 1/18th scale that would be big enough to put small action figures in it

I think 1:16 scale would be great. I did a lot of research once on this and did determine it was a museum scale. Leif also has information on this scale. I like the reference materials you have and would hate to see you dumb it down. Make it detailed. You have the references. Go for it.

Bigger the better....bigger is better.....easy to reduce, sometimes hard to enlarge...I allways vote for larger,that and my fingers don't work as well anymore...so bigger is easier.....Rich

I did read it. At the end you asked again what scale we would like to see it in. Just adding my 2 cents. Sorry

yes...I agree...1/16 scale is the most likely candidate.

but the other consideration was 1/12, for those who keep asking for bigger.
Only issue with 1/12, is I can't get some parts (like the Main Chassis Frame Rails)
on a standard Letter or A4 page...those parts would have to be split.

...
I'm not rushing this project...I have yet to start.
In fact, I am waiting on two people now who are helping me gather some reference material.
Since i am no expert (or amateur) when it comes to WW1 Armoured Cars, I need all the
reference material I can find!
